Mine did the same thing, but i put a new alternatoron it and found that I have an serious electrical drain. I narrowed it down to a relay in the fuse box under the dash. The manual claims it is a "battery saver relay"....any ideas on why this would be draining my battery? I replaced the relay but it didnt help.

Need to recharge the battery,fully,start the car,and check the charging voltage at the battery with a voltmeter, to verify that the alternator is charging the battery properly.If the alternator isn't working (charging) then the battery will go dead again.Charging voltage at the battery with the engine running should be minimum 13.5 volts up to about 14.5 volts.Battery voltage with the engine off should be minimum 12.5 volts.
