No Power

2000 BMW Z-3, replaced battery, ran for three days would not start, charged battery, no start, jumped battery no start, just click. Battery booster started car, ran two days, no start, no power to anything, battery was at 55%, charged battery, still no power? Any ideas on what might be happening here?

Sounds like a faulty alternator, if it's not keeping the charge. I would also have the car's codes read, that'll give you a great place to start troubleshooting. If it is the alternator, I've attached a DIY repair guide for the procedure. Please let us know if you have any questions!

Did you ever found out your problem? I have a similar problem but it takes two weeks to drain the battery.

I have to find the issue also on mine. The car charges with no problem. I just have a drain somewhere in the system. Please let me know what you found out on yours?
