Q: I have to constantly jump my battery.

asked by on

My car battery needs to be constantly jumped.

A: Hi, If you need to constantly jump your bat...

Hi, If you need to constantly jump your battery then you either have a bad battery, your alternator is not charging or a component is drawing power when your key is off. My recommendation to you would be to have a qualified technician check the battery and charging system and then look for a reason for the excessive draw on your battery. You could also have a trunk, hood or interior light staying on or the alternator could also be causing the draw. Only a thorough check could verify the problem for you.
