I had a very similar problem on my daughter's VW New Beetle. The garage checked the electrical system, installed a new battery, and within days the battery was dead once again. After quite a bit of hunting and tweeking the problem was isolated to an electrical connection to the hood release latch. The electrical connection was shorting out, and the battery was being drained. I replaced the item that was connected to the hood latch, and the problem never happened again. The garage wasn't sophisticated enough to find a "small electrical drain" but the VW dealer was.

check for loose dirty battery terminals and connections. Check for blown fusible link. Have a load test done on the battery to check for dead cell as you will still have 12v on a multimeter but no power for the starter.

1998 Mazda Protoge won't start

One of two things. Starter (or starter solenoid) or Neutral Safety Switch. Check the starter by disconnecting the EFI relay, then jump a wire from the positive term of battery to lug on starter solenoid does it crank okay? If not, then check the NSS, located under the airbox, can be adjusted using the offset bolt, just a tiny bit at a time, still no start? replace the NSS and adjust as necessary.

Changed battery....lights and radio work nothing happens when turn the key.

Starter Fuse? Possible failed ignition switch. Loose Cables on battery or starter. Starter not grounding properly. Bad starter Relay? Use Voltmeter check voltage going to main starter wire while someone cranks the motor if not power check power to starter relay while cranking if no power suspect ignition switch.

2005 ford freestar wont start

Check the battery. If the battery is weak all you will hear is the starter soliniod clicking. Make sure that all of the cables have good clean tight connections.
Most Auto parts stores can test your battery to see what shape it is in.
