Check to see if the alternator is charging,and if it is charging correctly,and the battery is good,test the battery with a load tester,if they check out good,then there is most likely a draw in the electrical system drawing voltage with the key off,check for a clock radio to be pulling down the battery,or a interior dome light or something of this nature,trunk light or hood light.Voltage for the charging system checked at the battery should be 13.65 to 14.25 with the head lights on,and the ac on high blower.Now to check for a draw,remove the negative battery cable and put a test light in between the cable and the negative post of the battery.If the test light lights up,then something in the vehicle is drawing voltage,pulling one fuse,at a time will help find the circuit that is causing the problem.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.
