You may have what is called a parasitic draw, simply put something ( an electric circuit or component ) is emptying your battery of its power. It may be as easy as something that was left on like a dome light or a faulty electrical circuit component. First look and listen inside your vehicle with the doors closed for any lights that remain on or sounds of something running. There's a start good luck.

Captiva battery run down quikly

Sounds like the alternator is not supplying enough power, or the battery is old and not holding a charge. Connect a volt meter across the battery, start engine should read between 13.5 and 14,5 volts, turn on headlights and heater blower meter should hold around 13.2 volts, if it drops lower then the alternator is not supplying enough power. The alternator drive belt may be slack? If its the battery, you will need to get a workshop to check it.

Idnition switch will not turn to lock position if battery is connected. disconnect negative cable then lock cylinder works.

your interlock solenoid has quit working on some models if you look under steering column you will see a round or square little plug remove this and you will see shift interlock solenoid plunger grab end of plunger and pull down switch will operate now with battery connected have seen people pull plunger out and wrap a plastic zip strap around not allowing plunger to move and not replace the solenoid on some gm,s you do this and it will kill battery overnite best to replace solenoid not that expensive

Good battery, goes dead overnite

You've got something grounded out somewhere in the electrical system. Fastest way to find it is to take it to an Auto Electric shop & have them run a test. Any Sears auto center will do it for you for free.
