I changed the battery 4 months ago started having problems again. It won't start and I jump start it and it turns on right away. I need to jump start it every couple a weeks, the truck isn't an every day car we use it on the weekends.
My car has 117000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
There are three basic possibilities and they could occur all be present to a degree: 1) the vehicle has a phantom load that is discharging the battery; 2) the starting circuit has high resistance; and/or 3) the charging circuit is not working properly.
