Something is putting a drain on the battery and making it go dead. Perhaps the light in the trunk, or glove box. Find, and fix the problem.

Turn everything off, and then take off a battery terminal cable and put a test light between the cable end and the battery terminal. If it lights up, you have a drain constantly, that will kill the battery.

Often it is something like the radio, or a bad alternator diode.

One solution is to put in a master kill switch that you always remember to shut off over night, or to pull fuses, disconnect things, etc., one at a time until the light goes out. When it does, you have found the culprit and can fix it.
