    Sounds like you have something draining the battery when car is parked. Like a light staying on in the trunk etc. Any indication that the alternator isn't charging?

    Does sound like you have a draw somewhere, try disconnecting the ground cable from the battery and place a volt meter between the battery and cable, and see what the reading is, if it is high then you have some thing stuck on, start by looking for lights stuck on if none found keep volt meter connected and pull fuses one by one and checking for changes on the meter with some luck you should be able to locate the circuit that is draining the battery...
