Question type: Maintenance & Repair

AAA replaced my battery. It starts after jumping and runs well. But if the engine is stopped, it wont start again without jumping. AAA said that somewhere it is draining the battery down.

If it is not starting because the new battery is running down on juice, then you need to have it checked for a parasitic draw on the battery when everything is shut off.
