At first if started every 6-8 hours the battery would be fine and it would start no problem. If you happened to not drive it for a day the battery would have no charge and the engine would not crank.
I'd get a jump and make sure to drive it frequently and everything would be fine, until I didn't drive it for 12 or more hours. Recently a nasty cold spell hit and the car cant even keep a charge for more than an hour, no interior lights, no cranking etc.
Ive taken it to 3 dealerships and nobody can figure out what is wrong with it. The battery might be out of juice now as it hasn't been changed in a few years but this has been an ongoing problem the last few years that has gotten progressively worse. Ive also experienced other intermittent electrical problems like the radio and A/C not working for periods of time, then working fine for periods.
