    Leave the lights on, door open, something plugged into the 12v. Very cold for a few days. Battery could be bad. To many short trips. A shop can test your battery if ur concerned about it.

    My neighbor just had this same issue and she just had a new battery put in too. You don’t run it at all? Because if you just run it a little bit... from just starting it and running it only for a few minutes the alternator isn’t recharging it back up to where the charge was before because you haven’t ran the car long enough.

    If you know anyone with a trickle charger, charge your battery up and after that if you aren’t using it at all for a while just go out for a half hour ride a couple times a week or something.

    If the battery is good, it could be a parasitic draw.

    Does she activate the alarm? I had been having trouble where I would have to jump my car once in a while. New battery etc. I've narrowed it down to activating and not activating the alarm on my car and it hasn't happened since I stopped activating the alarm. I'm not sure if it's 100% the reason but I have a feeling it is.

    Parasitic draw is when an electrical component keeps using power even when it is supposedly turned off. They are a pain in the ass to track to the source.

    It could be something as simple as an alternator going bad, but if your car has a lot of electronics, better get that multimeter out.

    Sometimes mouse related. They chew through some insulation and something that is live partially grounds draining the battery over time.

    this, it should be good to start up for a few weeks without driving, not 4 days


    or battery was going bad and the 4 days was the last straw

    most cars have 'always on' usb and power output terminals these days.
    something must have depleted it over the days like others said.

    i bought a special gadget to shut off power outlets in my car to ensure dashcam doesnt kill the battery
