Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 6 volt Optima battery is less than a year old and
will not hold a charge for more than a week, and I
don’t know where my repair shop purchased it, and
the shop is out of business. I think the battery is fine
and it is a problem with the car?

Check for a battery drain when the key is off. Do an internet search for "parasitic battery drain".
