Best Answer

Either the battery has a dead cell and needs replacing, or alternator is defective, loose or corroded battery cables, or something is draining the battery. Look for a courtesy, trunk, under hood, glove box light that is on. Also can be a defective brake light switch which causes the brake lights to stay on.
