I think its a case of knackered batteries, lifetime of a batt 3-5 yrs, some last longer some dont,depends on your journeys & make of batt, short ones kill batts, I have to put my batt on charge every 4 weeks as I only do short journeys,the car sort of tells me by the rev counter starts jumping.
Changed mine 6 months ago for a new BMW one as the old one was 14 yrs old, so the better the maker the longer it will last.
Put the BM batt on charge for 24hrs and see what happens,OFF THE CAR, but make sure its fully charged.
