Does everything seem to work fine? Do all of the electrical accessories seem to shut off? Thanks.

Do you have heated seats? The heated seat module is pretty common to fail causing battery to drain on these vehicles.

How do you turn them off so they won't drain the battey
Jeep Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Circuit breaker #2 feeds power to the Heated Seat Module (HSM) and the Memory Seat Module (MSM). Remove the circuit breaker to see if battery stops draining if so you know the module needs to be replaced. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions. Thanks.
