Dead battery after car sits for day
My vehicle will not start after sitting for a day. Jumping it
gets it started and keeps it on. However, this problem
continues after a jump. Was wondering if it's my security
alarm causing parasitic drain or a bad alternator? Or
That is a possibility is the alarm/remote start an aftermarket product? If it is not the alarm/remote start I would have your battery tested. If it is not the car battery they it could be the alternator. Hope this helps!
When was the last time you had the battery replaced? If it is over 5 years I would replace the battery and have the alternator tested. If the issue continues take it to a reputable mechanic for parasitic current draw diagnosis.
