Battery usage

Asked by Jun 21, 2018 at 09:35 AM about the 2007 BMW 3 Series

Question type: General

I drive a bmw, 2007 model, 320i, sportspack
manual. My car is draining my battery. While
driving, i noticed the onboard battery signal that its
low on battery. Eventually the battery died. I
thought my battery is probably old n refitted a new
battery, size 652. 3 days later, my vehicle is
showing me sign of battery again.
Please note that all extras (interior lights, etc) do
go off when ignition is switched off.

What can be the problem?????
Pls advice

Sounds like your alternator. It’s what transfers the power generated by your engine to the battery to recharge it
