Modern cars have a lot of systems that run while the car is off. This drains the battery in a short time. If you leave the car idle long enough, as little as a couple of weeks, the battery will be drained and this can kill a battery. If you continue to leave the car standing for long periods, you should get a trickle charger, or battery tender, to keep the battery energized while at rest. Go to a car parts store to get the battery and the alternator checked, and ask about getting a battery tender.
