How old is the battery? It sounds like the battery may be nearing the end of its useful life. If the battery is 4 or 5 years old, that is likely the problem. Only other thing could be something braining the battery overnight such as an interior light or something.

3 years old but if it's nice out she's fine and the last 2 weeks I had to jump her once and then change her 3 times but like I said if she turns over she runs all day do you think it the battery and my lights are fine my hazard lights work blinkers everything it just doesn't have the sound of turning over and when I do turn it it's nothing there so can that be the battery

So what could that be it's something they're draining my battery do you think because my turn Drive last night and she's purring like a kitten yesterday it was no problem you know and then I call in the morning to start her and she won't start so what can that be

Thank you for your time just let me know if you have know what more I can do
