Angry battery drain update

Thanks for the input fellas.


I had my mechanic replace the blower/ final stage resistor since that seemed to be the common issue. $450 and 6 hrs of labor later and it didn't help. So basically I've been jump-starting my car for the past 2 weeks. I'm going to the dealer on 3/24. They told me $135 + tx per hr (it should take 1 but could take up to 7 hrs- is this unbelievable or what?). So I could be out of $1000 and still not sure what's wrong. I have no choice as this is really stressing me out. My wife wants me to get rid of the car but I can't.

I'll keep you guys posted.
