2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 8 Cyl 4.70L


Parasitic battery draw 2008 ram

Alternator tested good replaced my battery because the old one wasnt holding a charge which tested good at auto zone .. the only draw I have is 2.5 mil amps (which I believe is normal) from ignition and cab compartment / ignition draw . I tested all the fuses . My batterry is usually dead around 24 to 48 hrs ... what could I be missing ? I also tested the alternator at orileys and auto zone, grounds are good! no corrosion on battery cables or ground cables at all . What about the throttle body maybe possibly something shorting out causing somthing to stay on ? Maybe not allowing the computer to shut it off some how ? I know it sounds dumb but I'm out of ideas. battery readings are 12.4 v when truck is off and 14.5 when truck is running with a load on batterry
