battery won't hold a charge.

Asked by Nov 09, 2015 at 02:37 PM about the 2008 Dodge Avenger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was stuck, and had to take my car to an unethical mechanic, who has a
history of fixing one thing, while breaking something else. I had no issues
before this time, my battery is less than 5 months old, the alternator is less
than a year old, but the battery won't hold a charge. What things could he
possibly have done to my car? What should I look for, what should I check?
