Battery looses its charge after running car for about 3-4 days.the 1st one garage tested said it was dead so baught new one put in drove 3-4 days now acting up again.abs light comes on and speedometer jumps up n down radio shuts down ect

Check and make sure ur battery cables are connectex to the alternator

Recheck with third battery. If no-go swap alternator, as its internal voltage regulator has become intermittent, "forgetting" to turn on to charge battery at idle. Very common problem until about 2005 or so.
