Answer 1
You should have your battery tested before replacing it. There could be an electrical component staying on causing your battery to go dead. If the battery tests bad - replace it and see what happens. If the battery tests good then you should have the electrical system tested for and excess draw when everything should be off. If you replace the battery make sure the terminal ends are free of any corrosion before installing the new battery. -
