I left my car in the garage for 2 days and then when I tried to start it the battery was COMPLETELY dead. There was no power whatsoever inside and outside. I boosted the car with no issues so it must be a battery problem. The battery was replaced a couple of weeks before this so I don't know how a brand new battery can be drained in 2 days. I'd also like to note that everything was shut off prior to this. Please help. Thanks.

Hi there,

You could have a faulty battery, get it load tested to make sure, also have a current draw test done, place am Amp meter between the battery pos and the cable, with key off and doors closed check current draw, if above around.25Amps you may have a relay or switch leaking voltage, pull each fuse and fusible link one at a time to see if this will isolate the faulty circuit, start here.

Either something is left on and is draining the Battery or
Well if it continues it could be a bad solenoid on you starter.

Easier to just change out the whole damn starter than to pull of the starter and repair Solenoid and repair it and put it back on!
