Battery runs down

(2006 Chrysler Pacifica)
in Geneva, NE on September 11, 2011
I have replaced the battery 4 times since the car was new in 2006. All have been good quality batteries. I replaced the battery in June of this year and this morning it was dead. Has anyone else had this problem with their Pacifica?

make sure it is the correct capacity. the cold cranking amps need to meet oem specs. have a shop check it for you.

Just because the battery is "dead" doesn't mean it is bad. I suspect you have a charging problem not a battery problem. It would be nice to know which of the three differant Pacifica models you have or what V-6 engine you have. It sounds like you have a PARASTIC DRAW on the battery. This is above your ability to diagnose. Let a pro find the draw and you will not have to replace a battery for awhile.

It is a Touring model and has the 3.5L V6 engine. You are probably correct in your diagnosis. I put a charger on the battery after I posted the first note and it did not take long before the car started.
Thanks for your answer.
