You have a short somewhere in your vehicle electrical system that is causing your battery to loose its charge there are are quite a few things that can cause this problem. Here are a couple of things that you can check like look closely at your vehicle at night and notice if there is a light staying on like the trunk light , hood light, interior lights, any thing that should not be lit up. Other then that electrical shorts are very hard to find sometimes.
