Seems that you have a power drain. If you installed any electronics check to see if the wire has an open section that is bleeding the system.
Check to make sure that when the glove box closes the light in side goes off. A sprung glove door will keep the light on and will drain a battery in about 3 days.
If you put a trailer hitch on the truck make sure that the grounding is done correctly. Lighting harness to trailer, trailer to truck. A poor ground will cause the electrical leak and drain the battery if the trailer in attached for a few day, less than 3.

96 ranger will not keep charge has new battery new alt. and if I jump it off it will run fine for a few days sometimes a week but when I go to start it's just dead. Any help plz.


Check the battery voltage when the vehicle running on idle, it must between 13-15 volt.
Check the battery voltage on full electricity load (turn on headlight, A/C, radio, wiper), it must between 12,6-13,8 V, If the voltage under 12V, check the radiator fan and radio/power amplier
