Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the battery is dying while the vehicle is parked then you have a battery draw. The problem may be intermittent, but something is either coming on or staying on while the ignition is off and everything should be at rest. It may be a light that is coming on or staying on (such as the glovebox light), a module that is staying awake and in turn keeping other modules awake, aftermarket radios and amplifiers will often cause a draw, or it could be in the alternator.

What will need to be done is an ignition off draw test. With the battery charged back up an ammeter will need to be set up between a disconnected battery cable and it's post. After about ten minutes if the current draw exceeds about 40 mA then there is cause for concern. From there fuses can be removed one at a time to see when the draw drops or voltage drop across fuses can be checked to see where current is flowing, and then components on that circuit can be concentrated on.
