1. YOU need to check if the car has a battery draw/drain on it. Every car does, depending on computer memory/electronics- but not much
Have a mechanic/or if u can do it yourself:
Take a volt meter- put it on to measure amps/current- disconnect one of the battery terminals. Put one test lead on the battery terminal, and the other on the wire to connect volt meter in the circuit.
You should only have around 0.10 -0.20 amp draw(one tenth, two tenths of an amp)
Any more than that then u have a battery that is getting drained fast.
2. If you bounce the hood and it starts--- then something is loose- Have the Starter wires checked- - the wire that is a clip on/push on-- on the starter is a bad design and comes loose sometimes- if loose it wont crank.
If it does have enough juice, it maybe the starter going bad or a loose/shorting out wire somewhere
