After you shut off car try taking battery cable off than put on when u go to start it. If it starts every time something is draining ur battery

Ok so it was doing it every single time I went to start it and this went on for about a month. But for the past 2 weeks or so it's only doing it maybe every 5th or 6th time I try to crank it. How do I figure out what is draining the battery if anything is? Also, not sure if this is connected or not but last night while I was driving the dang tail lights quit working!! Brake lights and blinkers still work fine but no dang tail lights!! Seriously contemplating putting a bullet in and calling it done! Plz help!!!

Go on YouTube and watch videos on how to test for parasitic drain. Sometimes its a lil difficult to figure. Hope it helps!
