Could be speaker wires. Does the radio have a CD or tape player? If you play one, does sound come out the speakers. If so, the radio will need professional repair or replacement.

If the light is flashing its because your doing damage to the catalytic converter. Your dumping raw fuel, in other words you have a coil pack not firing. Your gonna have a P code. Either P0300 random multiple misfire, P301 cylinder 1 misfire, P302 cyl #2 misfire, ect... Replace the coil pack on the dead cyl.

Had variable timing solenoid installed - Don't think that has anything to do with the battery draining . You have a parasitic draw on the battery . Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuit's ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YE6v4ryk24g

Common reasons for this to happen:
  • Malfunctioning transmission: In a car with an automatic transmission, the torque converter takes the place of the manual clutch and is responsible for transmitting power. If the torque converter is broken, or if there is a low fluid level in the transmission, the converter will not do its job, and the car will be unable to maintain power at low speeds, which causes the engine to shut off. A defective TCS or torque converter solenoid can also cause this issue.
  • Low fuel pressure, dirty or defective fuel injectors, or broken fuel pump: The fuel pump is responsible for transferring fuel from the tank to the engine. A malfunctioning fuel pump can result in low fuel pressure, which means that there is an inconsistent stream of fuel to the engine. At high speeds this doesn't matter as much, but at low speeds a temporary pause in the fuel stream is enough to kill the engine. The fuel injectors are responsible for spraying a measured amount of fuel that is ignited by the spark plugs at the proper time. Injectors can become clogged or dirty over time resulting in erratic spray or no spray at all.
  • Bad oxygen sensor or mass flow sensor: The oxygen sensors and mass flow sensor determine how much oxygen is entering the fuel stream, and helps the vehicle adjust the air-to-fuel ratio. If there is too much or too little oxygen, your vehicle will not have optimal power. Just like with low fuel pressure, the car will continue to operate at driving speeds, but this suboptimal power won't be able to fuel the vehicle as it slows down.
  • Loose or corroded wires in wiring harness: An inconsistently firing ignition will result in an easily stalled engine. If the wires don't have consistent, constant, and reliable connection with the ignition circuit, the vehicle can lose voltage quickly, and it won't have the power it needs to keep running as you slow down.
  • Faulty idle air control actuator: The idle air control actuator controls the engines RPMs when it is idling. This actuator receives information from the electronic control unit (ECU) so it knows at what RPM to keep the engine for a smooth and safe idle. When the actuator malfunctions, the engine gets no signal for idling speed and stops working.
  • Clogged or restricted EGR Valve: If your EGR valve is clogged, dirty, or defective it can cause your car to stall, idle erratically, or sputter, depending on whether it is stuck open or closed.

You should have a tow bar on your car for a start. Use a fixed length bar attached to the front suspension or tow points of the towed car. Any thing else is illegal and will cause damage to the rear of your car. Best use a tow truck or a tilt tray truck as it is all covered by insurance that way
