Battery goes dead not all the time but sometimes about 2-3 weeks ,new battery have tried 2 batterys

Have the charging system checked out.... Possibly you have an intermittent connection from the Alternator, or a possible bad alternator.

Do you mean that it goes dead after sitting a week or goes dead after a week while driving it?

have the battery load tested as there is no guaranteed service life for batteries ( that is why you get a warranty period )
next have the charging system checked by an accredited auto electrician ( alternator , voltage regulator and drive belt tension and possible current leakage from failed relay or wiring problems )

You need to run a parasitic drain test with a multimeter. Disconnect the vehicle battery positive terminal and connect the multimeter in series between the battery positive terminal and lead. the multimeter should be set to display amps. With all systems turned off, the keys out of the ignition and all doors closed, alarm off and any hood/bonnet switch depressed then after 20 minutes the amp reading should be around 0.03 or less. If you have more than 0.05 then you may have a parasitic drain, causing a n accelerated loss in battery power. In this case, using the same setup then pull fuses one by one from the fusebox until your amps drop down to the normal range. The fuse you pull which causes the range to drop to normal represents the system which is at fault.
The most common causes of parasitic drain from my experience tend to nearly always be failed back up batteries in alarm siren modules or badly wired or faulty stereos. Those are the two systems I'd pay particular attention to.
Of course it may be a simple human fault like you left your trunk/boot light or interior light on.

What caused my battery to drain while car was off?

The major cause of this is the overhead lights left on.

Yes, you will be able to jump it. Yes, you will need a new battery. Yes, the battery will drain completely - actually, if you have at least an alarm system active , it will completely drain in less than 2 months.

Installed new battery a few weeks ago thinking it was the problem being it was 6 years old. If the unit sits for more than a couple of days-dead battery.

that means that theres somthing wrong with the wiring, could even be the alternator u need a lot of time to ckech that out cause u need to find a cable that is on contact with ground, thats whats taking away the power on your battery probabbly.

Electrial system warning light stays on even with key off

Remove the negative battery cable and connect a 12 volt teat light between the terminal and the battery post. Make sure all doors and trunk are closed and all consumers are in the off position. The light should glow. Now pull one fuse at a time until the light goes out. When it goes out that the circuit thats causing the draw.
