When I don't drive my car for a couple of weeks it wont start. The battery is 1 and half years old. When I jump the battery it will start and I can turn it off it will start again. Could it be an alternator problem

2 weeks of sitting may kill a good battery. There are a lot of electronics that will draw on the battery and after 2 weeks, it can kill it.

Start it more often to keep the battery going.

Have the system double checked to verify good battery and alternator
