You have a short circuit somewhere.


You may have a parasitic draw. Here's a short video on how to pin point the problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF1gijj03_0 Your alternator may also be bad. Have autozone do a quick alternator test. You may find that it's not producing any volts to keep your battery charged.

I've had the alternator checked ,starter and made sure the battery was the rite one for my car


If all of that is good, then you have a open circuit. AKA a short.




If you have short? Then how would you go about fixing it?
