It would be good to have a test meter to check voltages. One check you can do is to check the car in the dark for any sign of a hood light, glove box light, or trunk light being stuck on.

Have you checked to confirm alternator output?????
If it takes a week that would seem to be too long to be an output problem, but the check is quick and easy.......
If you DON'T get the proper results, be advised there is rather large fusible link between the alt and the batt

thanks for your reply.i have read something about the fusible link.so im goin to give that a try.and is it easy to locate?i dont know much about cars.if it is the fusible link do you know what it would cost to fix?and someone else on here said to check the car at night to see if any lights are on that could be running the battery down.
