2006 Pontiac Vibe 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 42000 miles

Two weeks ago my car would not start, so the dealer replaced the battery. I drove it back and forth to work, approximately 1.5 miles one way. Last week I drove the car Monday - Wednesday. Did not drive it on Thursday or Friday due to heavy rains. On Saturday I went to use the car and it was completely dead. Nothing worked, ie, lights, horn and had to use the key to get into the car. The dealer said that the battery had a low charge. What would cause a new battery to have a low charge and the car not run?

A battery drain, with everything turned off, will cause the battery to run down. A problem with the charging system can also cause problems.
