No, I haven't found it yet.

and yeah, I tested all the circuits...at least, all that I could find. (and the alternator).
I'll have to have my mechanic load test the battery.

Went out on Sunday morning to go somewhere, and the wife told me that she hadn't used it since Thursday...I gave it a try, and it was low, (on the "rrr...rrr...rrrr" test ), but there was just enough juice to turn it over. very surprised. But, its been unseasonably warm here lately.

A 4.5 milliamp draw will not discharge a good battery in 2 or 3 days. Replace the battery, and do yourself a favor and buy a battery from your OEM (Dodge). In the long run you will save much trouble by taking the Sam's battery to a recycler. Adios, John
