You should also make sure that the wires are tight on the battery

You should also have the alternator tested, as that's what recharges the battery while the car is running. I had to have mine replaced about 18 months after I bought it. Jetta's are known for electrical issues, unfortunately.

You have a short somewhere, or a light is being left on. There could be a number of reasons, you'll need to troubleshoot by process of elimination. Check to see that the fuel pump shuts off when it should, check to see that no lights stay on, check any potential source of power drain, even the alarm system.

Battery runs down overnight the battery is new


It is likley that there is a draw on the system draining the battery while it sits, could be a bad alternator. Try disconnecting the battery when you park the car for the night, re-connect it in the morning and see if it's ok. Then get the electrical system checked to confirn either alternator or system draw.

Well contact your dealer and tell them that your battery is gone bad for no reason and don't mention you let the light overnight because your battery is under warranty and they will put in a new one. Good luck
