Default I have a '94 Acura Legend that won't start. Could it be an electrical drainage?

If the car is not driven over the weekend, Monday morning all power is gone. Its been 'fixed' several times. Some said battery, alternator, and even the radio. It never cuts off while driving it, but it has to be jump started to get it to run.

if you have radio and lights while your driving it's not the alternatordo you have auto seatbelts. those sometimes cause a drain when a relay goes bad. if you jump your car and drive it for awhile and turn it off and it won't turn back on it's your battery that won't take a charge from the alternator (most likely a bad cell in battery) so replace the battery

1) It could be your battery, try to jump start it with another car.if that doesn't help2) It could be your starter, in that case you need to replace it at a body shop.

i own a repair shop and you need to take it to a good mechanic ,and let him do a draw test on it and see if it has something running the battery down on it,,it just about has to, if it goes dead that fast,it may be something as small as a glove box light doing it,but he can find it in a few minutes if you,ll have the draw test done on it,its really a simple thing to do ,and only takes a few minutes to do,but this is the one way to find out for sure,,good luck,i hope this help,s.
