    Default Battery drain

    If the car is not used every day it won't start on the day you want it to. It is not a problem if used daily but one day off and it won't go the day after - does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    the battery that came with the car from new only lasts about the 3 year warranty period.. after that they seem to just suddenly die...get the battery tested for dead cells and get the alternator checked out for output and reverse drain ( in case the diode pack in the alternator has blow allowing the current to drain)..My hunch is on the battery failing TBH..
