Is this after running the stereo for hours? What time frame does it lose charge.....one day, two weeks? Obviously more information is needed here. Any dealer would need the same information.

Are your battery terminals dirty or coroded? I should know something about that. I had to have my car jump started at a DA meet. My positive terminal was so coroded.

i remember that.

@ the OP, can you think of anything you may have left on? maybe its a temperature thing?

when you jump it, do you actually drive it for a little while, or leave the engine on? if you only drive it around for 5 mins after being jumped, it may not have gained enough juice.

Either something left on, bad battery, or alternator.

1.5 might not have been much.. i'd say go by time not distance atleast 15 mins, but at dealerships i see them allowing cars to idle for close to 30 mins.
