Hi Haley. Thanks for contacting us tonight. When a battery dies quickly, it is often caused by a malfunction of the battery charging system. The alternator is responsible for this task, but there are other parts like the battery temperature sensor and charging cables that all contribute to this function. It’s likely that one of these is causing your problem. I think the best way to find the right source of this problem is to have one of our professional mobile mechanics come to your location and complete a battery will not hold a charge inspection. This will allow them to isolate the source of your problem.
