Why does my battery keep dying

3 Answers


The alternator is not charging , or you have a short in the car or there is some type of device that is being left on in the car. Go to Auto Zone and have them put a load test on the alternator they will do it for free to see if it is charging the battery.

Have the vehicle tested for a parasitic current draw. Also look to see if a glove box light trunk light or hood light is staying on after the vehicle is shut off. Another issue may be the battery itself, have it tested.
