Hi Guys,
Just having this issue with my EF and i dont drive the car often enough. My battery is like dieing out or something and i put in a new battery and after couple of days without any driving the battery dies out.... its like something is sucking the juice outta the battery. I dont want this battery to crap itself so i just start the car every second day for a few minutes so the alternator can charge the battery in that time. But seriously something is like sucking it bad. If you have any ideas what it might be please reply back.

Alternator's dying. Scrounge up the cash and get it fixed.

Starting the car and running it for a few minutes isn't going to charge your battery.Check your charge rate with a multimeter 13.8-14.6 is acceptable.make sure all the lights are off esp. your interior light.Charge up battery using a charger.Disconnect negative terminal if you aren't using the car.If you have a drain this will stop it.Take it to an auto electrician.Cheers Kevman :)
