You've had two mechanics look at it and they can't figure it out. I can't see the car, but I'll take a stab at it. First mechanic replaced the battery and the car ran for a short time. Second mechanic replaced wires and probably charged the battery, and the car ran for a short time. Id say that your alternator is going out and not charging the battery fast enough so that it's depleted in a few days. Have the alternator checked.
