Three batteries? Seems like you have a drain or the alternator is not charging. But if the dealer didn't pick it up an alternator issue, then it could definetely be a wiring short. Which will require you to spend some money on a diagnosis. Cars are money pits, but a necessary evil. I'd recommend taking to another local mechanic that someone can recommend to you that does good honest work, and will fix the issue the first time. Good Luck!

I'd recomend having the alternator checked and possibly follow your wires back to your starter to see if you have a wire grounded out somewhere on the engine
