Question about 1997 Ford Expedition

Truck wont start after sitting for about 6-10 hours.

The truck will start if you jump it but if it sits for a while or over night it will drain the battery. Could you help me with the problem?

Turn off the ignition and test for discharge.

    If battery checks out ok then you have a parasitic loss. Pull all the fuses out and see if it still discharges. If it is live after no fuses in all night, then replace 3-4 at a time until you find a group that drains it...then replace the these one at a time until you have determined the individual component responsible for the loss and address that component's failure.

Put you a really good battery about $90 or more. Try interstate MTP-65 or MT-65. I dont work for them but I'll bet it'll fix it
