Why does my battery keep dying?

Asked by GuruJNF6T Aug 03, 2020 at 02:29 PM about the 2002 Isuzu Rodeo S V6 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Isuzu's battery keeps dying.  I replaced the battery and within a week it was
dead. Alternator has been checked and fine.  I don't run it much but the last
time I recharged the battery I was driving it and starting it and it died by the end
of the week.  : (

Clean battery cables and make sure they're tight. If u still have the same issue, Take it to a different place to check battery and charging system.


Batteries in today's cars get drained by all the things running when the car is off. Even with a new battery, you can find it dead in a week. You could add a battery tender; that's a little trickle charger that plugs into house current and keeps the battery charge up when the car is off for any length of time.
