Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

What your describing is called excessive off draw, and how to find and repair it is by performing a ignition off draw test.. You will need a multimeter connected inline with the negative battery terminal and what your doing is monitoring the voltage draw.. Anything over .050 is considered excessive and once you have a reading you will need to start pulling fuses 1 by 1 until the draw falls off and then see what that fuse powers up and then disconnect the components until you have found it. We see glove box lights and radios at the top of the list for causing this issue..

If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!

Have a great day,
