    HELP!!!
    I have a 2005 Dodge Durango. We have had it 2 weeks, and the battery drains overnight. We have had the battery tested twice, the alternator tested. We took it to the dealership and the ran a diagnoses and determined it was the instrument cluster, replaced yesterday. This morning, DEAD BATTERY!!! Taking back to the dealership, any ideas???

    the guys at your dealership are morons. Hook up an ammeter between battery post and battery cable WITH THE KEY OFF. Measure the amperage. It should be below .050A. If not, start pulling fuses. When the amperage drops, you've found the source of your parasitic drain. Find out what circuit that fuse feeds. If it's not important, just leave the fuse out. If it is, further investigation is required.

    Got problem fixed. Turns out it was an amp that was pulling power all the time. Thanks for the advice.
