If I leave pickup 8 hours, why is it dead and has to be jump started?

Sounds as if there is a parasitic draw on the battery. You need to perform a draw test to see what amperage is being drawn from the battery while the vehicle sits. Anything more than !/4 amp will kill the battery overnight. Check for any lights that may be staying on inside the vehicle as well as outside the vehicle while it is shut off before getting involved in a draw test

The battery is easily drain even i replaced it an new battery, what is the posible problem of my vespa lx 150 ie? Ty

Many answers you need a multimeter or ammeter to measure the quiescent current drawn (power used when nothing turned on)

Set it on the 10a scale and measure the current drawn ,put the leads in series with the battery feed wire.

Causes could be a faulty regulator pack or a short on the stator of the generator,a scuffed cable shorting to earth ,(usually around the brake light switch) or a faulty switch causing a lamp to light continuously . I could go on but that should give you a starting point.
good luck

2006 liberty new battery alternator works when sets over night battery goes dead put a kill switch on and still goes dead ?

put kill where? at battery post, and is just a switch,
not those dynamic battery drop relays?
if the battery goes dead with the neg. lug pulled the battery is bad.
end of life , battery.
the lug pull never lies.... ever.
if stays ok now this is called battery phantom drain.
(or aka. dark currents)

finding cause takes an ammeter. any,
here is all ways to find a drain.

2006 liberty new battery alternator works when sets over night battery goes dead put a kill switch on and still goes dead ?

Hello Jr, The fact that the battery goes dead even with a kill switch would lead me to think the new battery is defective.

Cigarette port

All newer vehicles have a safety battery shut off. Youll need to turn your key back to accessory. say your listening to your radio with the keys out, it will shut off after 10 mins so it dont drain your battery. dont worry about it killing your battery charging a phone...ect.

Flat battery

Replace that fuse and start by removing fuses one by one from block, till draw disappears. Then, check that system for problems.
Don't forget: your alternator will always show up as a small draw.
Check accessories such as glovebox light first... Often, if box is not closing properly, it will kill the battery in a few days. Same goes for interior light delay!
