Why do we have to keep getting jumps?

Asked by Sep 06, 2014 at 03:35 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My daughter has a 2003 vw Beetle turbo.
We just got a new battery last  week from
AAA,  I got her a alternator like two
months ago,  her Starter is good and we
just got her coils fixed but for some
reason it's like every other day she needs
a jump to start her car. I really need to
know what to do.

Parasitic drain is what the correct term is. Something is drain her battery. You need to find out what it is by doing some electrical diagnostic work...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdIKNnwEjIs
