I have a 2004 PT Cruiser 2.2 crd and for some unknown reason after a day or 2 I have to jump start the car as the battery has run low. Once driven it's fine but why is this happening. There are no warning lights on the dash so what could be causing this.

    Have your battery tested first. I believe parts stores does this as a free service. start there. Otherwise a parasitic current draw could be the cause of your issue. Finding and locating this takes understanding of an automotive electrical system and skill. Find a reasonable reputable shop to do this for you.
