It's like something is draining the battery every night. Always has to have a jump in order to crank up. When I try to crank it up, it click clacks for a while and then it dies the more I try.

    Yes, your car battery needs to be charged.
    You need to give it a full, overnight charge with a
    reasonable charger.

    A car will run for many miles on a fully charged
    battery without the alternator working just so
    long as you don't run accessories. (radio, heater,
    lights, etc.)

    However, if you have a problem with the
    charging system that causes the battery to run
    down while you are driving, you will not get more
    out of the battery than just as long as it can hold
    a charge. Also, each time you recharge a battery
    in this way you are shortening the life of the battery.

    Watch your guages when you have charged it and
    are driving. It is also a good idea when you get it
    charged to run that you drive to your local auto
    parts store to have your alternator checked. They
    can do this with the car running so that you do not
    have to remove it from the car.
