Have you checked your battery post for corrosion build up?
give them a good cleaning, then give your wire leads that connect to the battery a good cleaning as well, wire brush, sandpaper, whatever you got to make them super clean so they can conduct that 12 volt current.

you might also want to follow those wires/cables/leads (whatever u wanna call them) ..and clean the other ends..or make sure they are not corroded..the ground wire especially.

clean them up real costs you nothing, and may solve your problem.

hope this helps

let me know

Hi I bought a new battry and it showed green for a week now it does not show green but car starts must it show green every day

Generally the indicator should glow green for the life of the battery unless it has drained or failed.

If you generally drive extremely short distances (under 15 minutes per trip) you could be draining the battery whenever you drive. This is a common problem in city cars. Otherwise it's possible something is faulty in the charging circuit.

Why do i have to charge the batt. every two to three days

The simple answer is the alternator is not charging the battery, or you have something draining the battery when the engine is off.
Have you checked the alternator output with a meter ?

I locked my doors this morning and a few hours later someone told me my car was clicking, i unlocked which wouldnt work with remote so i used key tried to start and nothing no power to anything use turn...

The battery is dead. I don't know why it dies so quickly. I have the same problem. If my car sits for two days without driving it then it dies. My car was on the side of the road for three days and it wouldn't start. Something is draining the battery.

Check the battery first, if it is ok you probably have a bad starter. If the battery is drained, you need to charge and test the battery and alternator.
