everything works good when the car runs

Thank you. These vehicles have a lot of electrical issues. I typically go through a complete battery draw test to find what systems are staying on. It can occur just about anywhere but most of the time it is caused by a problem with the body control module. The module will fail internally and cause the module to not shut off the circuits when not in use. I have also seen the ignition switch cause this but that is not as common. Either way a current draw test needs to be done. I hope this helps. please let me know if you need further assistance.

I haven't had a chance to take car into a shop yet .
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I went to take car in and decided to take the battery to be charged so I wouldn't have to get a tow . Well I found out the new battery I had bought was bad . So they replaced it and I think that solved the problem .

Hopefully that will do it. If you need any further help please let me know.
