OK. time for follow up: took the car to O'Reilly (Checker) and had the battery and charging system tested. both Passed with flying colors. I pulled the cables off the terminals and cleaned them with a wire brush, they looked very clean, but did it anyway. Battery is 3 years old. No view ports to check fluid levels, but it passed a load and charging test so that is not it. Several employees of O'reilly had the same idea that it is a short in the Positive battery cable, or in a breaker or a fuse right after it leaves the battery. There is a ton of stuff right there so I am not sure i will be able to isolate exactly where the problem is... may have to resort to a mechanic/dealer electronics systems test.
