What do you mean you tested the fuses to see where the drain is coming from?

I had gotten my dad to come by with a circuit tester I believe it'* called.and pulled the fuses one by one to see if there was something still drawing power from the battery once the car was turned off.none of the fuses he pulled made the tester light go off.

Even though the battery may be fully charged, it still may not have enough cranking amps to start the car. Have the battery load tested, or get another battery.
Have you tried starting the car by jumping it?

Then you have a fuel delivery issue. Verify fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge when you turn key on.
