Battery not holding charge. When the car sits something is draining the battery. Anyone else had this problem?

disconnect the battery and place an ammeter between the hot and the battery and measure to see if there is a parasitic drain on the battery. You can also take it up to Dodge and get a GR-8 test. It could just be a bad cell in the battery.

The term Ignition-Off Draw (IOD) identifies a normal condition where power is being drained from the battery with the ignition in the OFF position. A normal vehicle electrical system will draw from five to thirty-five milliamperes (0.005 to 0.035 ampere) with the ignition in the OFF position, and all non-ignition controlled circuits in proper working order.
If the IOD on your car is more the 35mA there is a circuit/module that needs to be repaired. I had it happen because the memory module cable connection was loose. Memory module is under the driver seat.
