I have a 95 gt that when it sits in my garge over night and I go to start it in the morning the battery is complete dead and won't start but when I jump it it start perfect. None of the doors are open and all power stuff is off so there is no power being drawn from the car so I don't understand why it's doing this it would be greatly appreciated it anyone could help me out thanks.

Test the voltage of the battery. Sounds like an alternator problem more than likely.

The alternator wouldn't be causing a draw when nothing's on. If your alternator is bad, it will just be running off battery when everything is on. Best way I can word it.

I had this problem with my 98 cherokee i went to autozone and they said it was alternator. Got a new one an perfect! Try autozone to check if its batter or alternator if neither than its a power drain.. Hope that helped dont no much but that

Yes sir. Start small! I'm not sayin the alternator isn't a possibility by any means. Just seems weird to me that it happened while nothing was running. That's usually not the calling card of a bad alternator.

I had that happen to me and my Horn relay got stuck on but my horn dosent work to begin with so I Hurd no sound. If your horn works you'll hear it going off. Hit your horn to make sure it works. If it dosent than check your horn relay. But it also could be a dead battery cell

That would fall into power drain. It just don't sound like a bad alt to me. I've been wrong before!! Let us know man!!
