My car battery is 2 months old and it has died on me twice now. It will die overnight or after a full day of not using it. I charged with a battery charger and it said it was at 80 percent when I stopped and the next morning it was completely dead. My friend said it might be a bad grounder but it just dies so quickly. It's a 1.8t.
Does anyone know what else I should replace?!? Please let me know asap!! Thanks in advance!
The car will sometimes try to start all on it's own too. For example, I had my car locked just after driving it and I head my car alarm going off so I unlocked the car and opened the door and seen that the radio was on and the gauge cluster was lit up. The ignition was in the off position and the keys were out of it but it acted like it was in accessory mode. Please help me! This car is becoming a disaster!!!
