  1. Is the alternator charging when tested at the battery?
    If it does charge then you may have a bad cell in the battery itself. Or left a light on(glove box not closed all the way, door ajar switch failure and interior light still on).
    If not, Replace the Battery. Most likely Cause.

    Occasionally something is drawing power that’s not of your doing. This is a parasitic draw, and it can cause the same result as leaving the headlights on: a dead battery in the morning.
