Need some help

So i have been playing around with my car alot lately since its been snowing and i dont want to drive it anyways, so on saturday i left my dome light on till tuesday needless to say the battery was dead to last night when most the snow was plowed i decided to jump it and take it for a drive so i took it for like a 2 mile drive and parked it, this morning the battery is dead again. Is it because i didnt get the alternater a long enough time to charge it? Its a brand new battery.

Re: Need some help

the battery won't last as long after a deep cycle like this

and don't depend on the alternator to charge a battery, it's designed to keep it charged, not charge it - disconnect the battery and hook a charger up to it.. you can get one for like $20 at sears...

Re: Need some help

i think it was a combo of both, the alt was bad i had it tested, and i have the battery on a charger. Thank you
