It has been sitting in the garage awaiting suspension rebuild for three months, and from time to time I go to start it and I get nothing. So I run to autozone with the stock battery and a motorcraft battery that I found in my garage. I go get them both charged, I come back, hook them up, it starts. two weeks later, completely dead. wtf? I don't even have a stereo in this car, their isn't any perceivable cause of drain...What is going on, men?

its either the battery itself or the alternator, put a screwdriver next to the alternator, if it doesnt magnetize its broken.
