You need to test for a possible parasitic drain. Start with this test http://www.wikihow.com/Find-a-Parasitic-Battery-Drain If you determine that you have a drain you need to locate it, which is tedious and quite a long process less you get lucky but I think you would agree not having to jump your car all the time would make it worth it. Good Luck
