    You either have a battery that will not charge fully needing replacement, a charging system failure not charging the battery fully, or a draw in the system causing the battery to drain overnight.

    Sounds like you need a new Alternator, alternators are easy to install, this is what is causing your battery to lose it's charge. Had this problem myself on another Ford.
