Default My 1999 Honda CR-V won't start?

Monday morning, 6/6, I got a jump from AAA and drove my car to Honda to have them tell me what the problem is. After a few hours they recommended a new battery. Paid $129 for a new Honda battery for my 1999 CR-V and went home. Next morning, Tuesday, 6/7, I got in my car, turned the key and no start. Lights came on inside the car, but when I turned the key, nothing. Car would not turn over. Got a jump again and drove back to Honda and currently they have no idea what is wrong with the battery drain. They put some connector on and told me that everything checks out. I said, "if everything checks out, why when I purchased a $129 brand new battery from you yesterday that the car does not start?" They currently have no answers for me. Any help? Thanks.

If the dash lights work and are normal brightness but the engine doesn't crank, test the battery voltage before jumping it. If the voltage is normal, then it sounds like you've got a problem that doesn't involve the battery directly. If the voltage is lower than normal, then sounds like you have an intermittent drain on the battery (which can be very time-consuming to fix). May have to remove fuses one by one to see which system is affecting the battery.
