Over the last few weeks the battery in my daughter's 05 Elantra keeps dying after not being started for a day or two. I haven't done any real investigation into it yet.

I have noticed the ring light around the ignition switch does not go out when the car is off. I'm not sure that would drain a relatively brand new battery in 24 hours though.

Thoughts?

Check to see that you are actually turning the key to the Off position. Some keys will remove in other positions. My old Jeep, the key will fall out going down the road if I have a bunch of keys on the ring.

look into it to see if the car is causing a Parasitic Draw.
