If the charging system is good and you replaced the battery and it still goes dead then you have something on the car that is causing a draw on the system that needs to checked could be something that is not turn off even a problem with one of the on board computers not powering down.this is providing the starter is not the problem.sometimes a bad starter will do nothing no noise or clicking sound because it has a bad spot in it or the starter solenoid system has a problem.

Battery constantly goes dead, even after it was the simple tests on it before you spend big bucks having a shop pin down the will need needle nose pliers, 20 volt dc scale volt/ohms meter, test light 12v, battery charger 12v,bright flash light.
Ok lets get this party started, first have the battery charged over night if on a slow trickle, keep the battery cables off overnight, next put the volt meter on it black pos. set to 20 dcvolt scale, statically the battery shoukld read 12.5 volts anything less it needs to be replaced, next.. reinstall the cables and start the car...what is your reading...12.5 volts???? this is straight battery voltage and indicates that the alternator/regulator combo is not charging... cause may be a broken wire off the back of the alternator or a bad alternator, possibly a stretched and loose alt. belt.
If wires look ok and the belt tests tight(with engine off try to turn the alternator pulley by hand, if it turns the belt is way too loose or defective..tighten or replace)..then suspect the alternator/regulator...remove it and take it to Discount Auto or Auto Zone there they will bench test it for output if no good replace it.
Ok if your reading was 13.0-14.5 the alt/reg is charging, turn on all electrical is the reading on the dv volt scale at about 12.8-13.0 volts, this is shut all accesories off and it should go to full charge 14.5..all good....anything less have the alt/reg bench tested as stated above.
Ok everythibng seems to be in charging order but it still goes have a direct drain on your electrical system knocking the daylights out of your battery, ok first disconnect every mercury under hood and trunk light you find and let it sit overnight(also go around the car in the dark and see if any lights are lit such as a bad brake light switch illuminating the brake lights while you sleep thus draining the battery overnight) next morning does it start...yes then replace the mercury lights and be certain they are adjusted perfectly because they cant be seen if they come on under the hood or trunk, Ok all that and still no find...take the positive cable off the battery and in series with it install your 12v test light...needle pin in the cable alligator clip on the post or vice are now testing for a draw in the system that may be killing your battery while sitting over night,
go to the under dash fuse panel and one fuse at a time remove it... each time while it is removed check to see if the test light is on or will go off when you find the circuit that the drain is in, mark the fuse in the panel when you find it and see if you can visually observe any wiring problems in that particular circuit(have a manual handy to locate which fuse controls what circuit in the fuse panel) example if the cigar lighter fuse is pulled out and the test light goes out... look at the lighter element... we have found children who put pennies inside the cigar lighter element causing a horrible drain on the battery and very difficault to find as well.
Hope this helps in you diagnostic adventures of basic electrical 101.

The battery is fully charged head light come on by the dash lights will not and the engine will noy turn over

If your engine won't turn over, there are a number of problems that could be the cause, This dead battery will still hold a full charge if you recharge it. Another thing that can cause your car to not turn over are the cables that connect the battery to the starter. This is the thickest cable in your car's electrical system, and carries the most current. make sure the cables are tight and clean for a good connection. If the battery is fully charged, just drive it around. for about 45 minutes, then see if it starts good. are you sure the alternator and or battery is good! use a test light, with car off at the battery post should be at least 12.6 or better at battery. if alternator is ok, less than 12.4 battery is failing, when running, at battery voltage should be at least 13.8 to 14.2 or better if alternator is charging. Try this, In the morning after letting it sit all night test it at battery to see if it is ok! or try a new battery. this one may be going bad. Hope this helps, Good-Day!

94 eagle summit started to randomly die for no reason. Then it won't start rite back up rite away. I got a turn up oil change air filter changer full tank of gas belts changed. I drove after then again...

Take the battery out and have it charged. Have a shop test the battery to make sure it is ok. If it died and the battery was dead check the charging system when you get it started again. With a volt meter test across the battery with the engine running. You should have 14.2-14.5v. This indicates the system is charging. If it is in the 12-13v range it is not charging and may need an alternator.

It could be a charging issue. But it could also be that something is draining the battery. To test the alternator you'll first have to charge the battery using a battery charger. Then follow this test.

If the alternator passes, then conduct a battery drain test with this procedure

My 2006 Grand cherokee is completely dead all of the sudden. It was fine this morning. I went into the garage and it is completely dead. No dash lights, can't unlock/locl the doors with the key etc. It is...

Sounds more like a bad connection at the battery. Remove the terminals and clean them and then see what you have. If it starts, good. If not you want to check the battery voltage using a meter, then re-charge, test the battery, then the charging system. If everything is ok, test the system for draw.(something staying on, even if you did not turn it on) You need an ammeter to do that.
There are fuses you should also test inside the power distribution center near the battery also.
If you need more help on a specific item, just ask.
