It's a parasitic drain and it's not the alternator, it's not the starter, it's not the radio, the headlights, the glove box light, the radio, the seat heaters, any of the switches for moving the seats, the trunk light, et cetera et cetera...
My dad is a very accomplished mechanic when it comes to cars.

those are the worst. I took mine in, had an 18V drain when the car and everything was off, the mechanic had never seen a drain like that in his life even with a car running and everything including AC on. It periodically pops up No idea what or where, everything has been checked. I feel your pain. You could spend 10K searching for that thing

Yeah, that's exactly my fear. Ugh! Internet says it might be body console module, but that some guys have replaced the BCM and that didn't fix the problem. I'm crushed because I love my car. It just has over 90k miles on it even for being a 2000. I'm really not ready to dump it... but I don't want to get stranded 200+ miles from home in it either...

mine's been happening since 36K. Not under warranty now, but was then, never mattered because they never found any thing defective covered under the warranty. Talk about infuriating, I went thru 5 batteries the first 4 years and had to pay for servicing and new battery each time because diagnostics weren't covered for non warranty parts, and the battery, brakes, belts and hoses were the only things not covered.

Haven't had a problem for a couple years now, but who knows why??
