SOURCE: is it common for the battery to die after 2 weeks

Depending on your battery, no it's not common. If your battery is newer, then you probably have a small drain on the battery. The most common ones to look for are: glove box light
trunk light
engine compartment light ( if you have one)

Kia optima engine dies in at stoplights and have to use battery jumper cable to restart. This happens two to three times a week


If you have to jump a car once, then you need to stop
& do some testing to find some problem,anything,make
that repair & continue on

Jumping a battery is almost an unsafe practice,it can ruin the
car electronics ,the battery in time & is never a fix for anything

2005 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder intermittently won't start


try starting the car and while running disconnect the negative battery cable,if the car still runs turn on the head lights,if the car dies the alternator is weak. I think its weak and can charge the battery as long as the lights are off,but cant keep up when theyare on. so if drive most of the time in the day time you are ok as long as you dont have to start the car too many times. when you drive with the lights on and the engine slows to an idle like when you park the car dies. make sense?

Battery dying


It is the alternator then. Dont take it to the dealer though because im sure they are charging you a pretty penny just to tell you there is nothing wrong. With a car this new I would not think this but there may be a short somewhere that is draining the battery but HIGHLY doubt it. Take the alternator out and take it to Schucks and have them test it.

2001 Jetta - won't start EPC light is on - tried manually disengaging by pressing brake and EPC Sensor simultaneously and releasing. Still no luck. Battery is working fine -


2001 jetta gls turns over but wont start. In the past month the temp light on the dash would come on for approx 10 seconds then would go away. This happened 2-3 times. Over the past two weeks when I would start the car it would turn on, then immediatly turn off, only to turn back on within 1 try. This happened once. Yesterday while taking my son to school the car died, again only to turn back on immediatly with one try. Today I went to start the car and it turned on for 3 seconds then turned back off but this time will not start again. I checked all the fuses (one by one) at the panel inside the car on the drivers side. All were fine. The car turns over fine but will not start. Extremly frustrated...

Subaru 2009 battery problem


it is possible with clocks and such to drain the battery after 2 weeks. if you can't let it run for a while during that time, just unhook negitive battery cable untill ready to use.

1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Battery Draining


yes. You just need an honest, qualified mechanic. I'm not saying your last mechanic was not qualified, but any mechanic should know how to search and test for an unintended drain. Sounds like that is what you have.

Go on youtube and watch videos of "unintended, or parasitic drains"-there are hundreds of them. Any mechanic with a good multi-meter should be able to find it pretty quick-within an hour or two.
I wouldn't worry about the AC-your car is too old for it-too easy to have problems with a car that old, although if you have enough money, you can do anything. Just saying it would be expensive. The window problem is not an expensive fix, probably needs a new window motor. yours probably has worn brushes. The rear defroster is easy to troubleshoot with a multi-meter. Keep at it and you will have a good car.
