Bad alternstor


You might also have a small electrical drain on the battery when it's off. So if you let it sit for too long, the battery dies. If you drive it daily, the alternator can keep the battery charged up, in spite of the overnight drain. But first thing to do is check that the battery itself is good, go to a car parts store like Autozone, Advance, or O'Rielly and they'll check the battery for free. (all the major stores do this).

See if the compressor for the rear air shocks is coming on when the car is off. My '94 Fleetwood does that. HTH. -Jim
