First I would have the batteries checked then if good try to find if there is a draw on them

Just something to check- A couple months back I came out after a couple weeks of not driving the old girl and batts were dead. Charged them & it started up. Later that evening I went out to check something and found the light in the glovebox was on. Door was just slightly hung up on my bag full of spare cps parts. No trouble since I cleaned out the glovebox a little bit.

Any drain on a battery for a long period of time will drain your system. Even your radar detector will do it. Even an aftermarket anti-theft system will do the same thing. It needs to get the power some how. Luckly its an easy fix, just unplug your detector and keep on parkin. My truck sat for a few months w/o the batteries hooked up and I plugged them in and it fired right up. I have the NeverStarts from WalMart. They were in there when I got the truck.
