Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 PT Cruiser with a Turbo Engine. After my mechanic put on new hose for AC, the battery keeps dying. I had the battery and the alternator checked, both are good. I have to keep getting the car jumped to start. We know something is draining the battery but my mechanic can't seem to find the problem. The car was driving perfectly before he put in the AC hose. Another mechanic also noted that the positive cable was hot.

have you checked the battery cells? usually if the battery dies and has been left dead for a period of time it can kill the battery... saying that if the cells are dry or the cores of the cells are fused together it wont charge, in tern causing the live cable to get hot.. i would just get the battery double checked as i have seen this before and that was the culprit.
