- After your ride, when you’re parked, some of your car parts were still running. It is known as parasitic drain. Although it is normal but sometimes this drain exceeds due to some electrical problem.
- You may have left your car running. It’s only human. One might forget to properly un-key, or leave the headlights running only to find a massive battery drain overnight.
- It could be an old battery. Or you may not have replaced it in time.
