Could be the battery or something draining power from the battery,
when you get home, disconnect the negative battery terminal from the battery, leave it over night in the morning connect it and try to start, if you do not start it means that your battery (although new) has a bad cell thats causing the charge to drain, take it back for warranty. Dont worry about the load test done to check the battery it'f based on the battery's current charge rate not after its left overnight.
If you did start it means something is draining power from the battery, could be,
1.) lights remain on check (hood light, door lights trunk lights) 2.) device remaining on , check radio, ac etc 3.) the cars CPU is draining too much power.
an easy way to check which one is to remove the fuses from the fuse box under the hood for each particular component to turn them off. or you can take the car to a gurage and have them go through all the harnesses for a short.

I'VE HAD A NEW BATTERY INSTALLED A COUPLE MONTHS AGO, BUT SEEMS A JUMP START EACH MORNING IS REQUIRED ????


It could be that you have a bad battery, I would recommend that you go and get it tested at a parts place like Advance or AutoZone or the dealership. It could also be that you have a weak alternator, I would recommend getting that checked as well. But, it could also be that there is something staying on (called a parasitic draw) when you turn your car off. I would make sure that all accessory devices (GPS, radar detectors, phone chargers) are removed when the car is turned off. Ultimately though it will take someone physically testing the starting/charging system to really find the problem.

How many cold cranking amps should I have for my 2001 SL1 Saturn


A 550 CCA Battery would be ok. Your recommended Battery is 525 CCA. The extra 25 Amps would be ok and also give you that little extra bit on those colder days up there. Thanks for Using FixYa!

Sincerely,
