Recently, I let the parking lights on overnight and the battery was drained and the car did not start the next morning. I jumped it off, let it run some, drove around and finally went to the local Walmart. I parked he car with faith it would start. My faith was rewarded. Saturday the battery was dead again.

I switched out the dry cell with a wet cell battery from another car. Today, 4 days later, that battery is dead. I plan to go to the Advanced Auto near us to have the charging system checked. If the charging system is OK, what could be draining the battery?
