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.

MY CAPTIVA REFUSED TO START. After a jump was able to start it. Had battery checked, fully charged, no issues. Car sat overnight & is now dead. Yes, made sure lights, etc were off.

I can think of 2 possibilities. A battery can be quirky sometimes. It may check out fine, but then loose standing storage very quickly. To check this. Charge battery fully up and check it with a VOM (or just start the car with it to prove its working) Shut the car off - Then disconnect the battery negative post so that the battery is not connected to the car. Rehook the battery up after 12 hours and see if it starts the car again. If it doesn't start, battery is probably bad. If the battery then starts the car, you have an electrical drain somewhere that is running the battery down when the car sits. This can be anything from an aftermarket alarm to a amp stuck on. Have someone check how much power is drawn at the battery with everything off.

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.
