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.

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