What would be a reason to have to continually jump a car battery?

Asked by Jun 21, 2017 at 09:30 AM about the 2012 Chevrolet Impala LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 Chevrolet Impala and I
have had to jump the battery over three
times in the last two days.  Now it says
the stabilitrack is off. I took it to Auto
zone to have the battery checked and it
along with the starter and whatever
else was checked turned out to be
okay. Please help!

sounds like something is draining the battery. The condition is called a 'parasitic draw'. You need to go through each circuit on the car with a multimeter and the fuse box to determine what is drawing current. lots of videos on youtube to help you DIY if your so inclined.
