PT Cruiser GT: no fuses blown, nor source of sneak circuit..amps

Resolved Question:

Have PT Cruiser GT, 2003, 74K, that drains battery about every two days when not used. Found no fuses blown, nor source of sneak circuit. However, measured a drain of 2.5 amps from battery + terminal to positive cable connection. Local Dodge technician maintains this is normal to maintain memory of control modules.Two new batteries have been installed, 1 a 1/2year ago, and last one about 9 months ago. Car operates okay otherwise.Very careful to see maintain seat heater swiutches in off position. Of courseall other switches are off.

hello and welcome

easiest way to farrow your search for a battery drain is to connect your meter what 20 minutes and one at a time removee the fuses use a piece of paper to keep track of where they go do not reinstall them until after you found the circuit with the draw on it.
