I’m sorry, but without you having a meter, I don’t have any other information that could help you at this time. I’ll opt out so others may try. Please do not reply until another expert responds or the site will cycle this request back to me.Best Regards.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!YOu have a handful of different things going on.The battery is dying because a component is drawing current when the key is off and everything should be asleep. It could be a light that is coming on or staying on, a failure in any module, and it isn't uncommon for an alternator to fail and cause a battery draw. An ignition off draw testing using an ammeter is the first step in diagnosing the draw.What fuses are blowing?
