Battery losing charge

I just bought a 2007 mustang and after a month of buying it, it starting to die out after sitting in the garage for the night. It doesn't go completely dead, it still clicks when I try to start it in the morning. When we put jumper cables on it it fires right up. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Autozone is saying it's still good. But it is "autozone" that's telling me that. Lol. Could it be the Voltage regulator?

I worked at autozone and those machines don't always work. How do your cables look?

I have an 07, same thing happened to me. The alternators are a big problem for that year, once you replace the stock alt you will be fine, they go out at 40-60k miles. Mine was 50k. They just built them poorly that year

You fix the problem? Charge the battery then unplug it completely then in the morning plug it up and try...that will tell you real quick if it's your battery

You might try pulling the fuse for your Shaker amps if you have them. I had a bad amp when I bought my car. It would stay on and drain the battery. Make sure you fully charge the battery after it goes dead. Jump starting it isn't enough.
