Battery Drain

I have a 2010 Granturismo and have battery issues. I took it into the dealership and they replaced it with the standard Maserati (Fiamm) battery. Everything worked fine for a couple of weeks and then it all started again. While driving all of the electronics went crazy. Once I got home I turned it off and restarted it without any problem but couldn't get it out of park. I let it sit for a while and started it again without any issues except the battery light was lit up. I got on this forum and read some posts and it seemed like a battery maintainer/charger was recommended so I went and bought a battery tender 1.25amp and charged it. It took about 4 days to fully charge which seemed extreme. I drove it for about 10 minutes. I put it back on the charger/maintainer and it started charging again. The battery light is still on and was on while driving even though the battery maintainer/charger said it was fully charged. I am not sure if there is something wrong with the alternator or if something is continually running to drain the battery. Any ideas?

Yeah, it sounds like the alternator is going bad...A battery tender is only needed if you let the car sit a lot...The car is equipped with the best battery charger there is... The alternator...It is more than capable of charging the battery 100%...Jason
