Do you have a test light?? if so, remove the negative battery cable and clamp the test light onto the cable and with the test light probe touch the negative post on the battery. If test light lights up, you have a DRAW IN THE SYSTEM draining the battery. If the test light lights up, next step would be to get a DVOM (digital volt meter) to check as to how many AMPS are you drawing. Anything under .3 amps is acceptable.
make sure, that your interior light in rear is not on, when you close all doors or any other lights inside the vehicle. post results.

Hi
If you have a new battery and it dies it means that the alternator is bad. The alternator is what replentishes the battery and run the car while you drive it. A simple test is as follows start the car, while the motor is running discinnect the (red) positive cable from the battery. The motor should continue to run....If it shuts off it means that the alternator is bad. The battery is only used to start the car! After its started it runs off of the alternator which also constantaly recharges your battery. Have any questions email me at jackdouglass@comcast.net
