Electrical- something keeps killing my car battery.

Do a draw test on the battery and then start pulling fuses while you watch the amp meter.. Also check for lights left on like glove box light, vanity mirror lights left on in sun visors, these are the most common source of draws.

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. If it sits for more than 24 hours it won't start without being jump started. Has a brand new battery. Could it be the starter?

It sounds like you have a major current draw, the alternator may be draining to earth internally . Once you have the engine running you need to check the charge rate from the alternator as it is controlled by the main computer .Also make sure you don't have interior lights such as a vanity mirror or glovebox light stuck on. This will be enough to kill a battery overnight.

Battery issues

There is a current drain taking place. Check for simple things first, like glovebox or vanity mirror lights staying on, check all lighting to make sure it is off when truck is off. Beyond that the alternator needs to be tested and a technician needs to check for other causes for parasitic drain.

How can I repair the vanity and rear view mirrors?

On most models the vanity and mirror lights are on a different circuit from the interior lights.
A mechanic would check for power at the lights then at the fuse.

I have burned through three batteries in one year. I think i have an electrical drain on the battery. once its jumped, it runs perfect. doesnt seem to hold a charge. the alternator and starter work fine....

You need to have a technician familiar with car electrical systems check for parasitic drain. This can be as simple as a vanity mirror light or glovebox light remaining on all the time.
