2005 chrysler 300 battery keep going dead

Try charging the battery with a small 10 amp battery charger with the negetive terminal removed, remove the charger and let set overnight. Hook the battery back up the next day and see if the car will start. If so, the alternator is bad. Drive to your nearest parts store and they can check the alternator to be sure it is bad. or just skip my first step and just go to the parts store, they will check the battery and alternator for free.

Battery want charge

Skipping clarification process

Not knowing for sure if the battery is completely dead after shutting down. And my guess is that the battery is not actually dead if all the electronics and lights stay working.

Im not sure is the batteries are new and what loads they have (cranking amps and such.

Check your ground cable for the battery
from battery (make sure good contact) to frame, block where ever it may go check for good contact and tightness there as well make sure there are no cuts or breaks on the cable.

reason Suspect a weak ground is because when you are jumping or getting a boost from another vehicle you are slaving off off there system ground as well as your own.

Your system needs a much better ground for starting your engine do to the cranking amps required compared to running lights and stereo ect.

Replaced battery and now SUV skips?

When you replaced the battery, you erased the computer memory. Drive it for awhile until the computer learns how to run again, it will be fine.
