Default 2005 pt convertible battery issues

My cruiser has Battery issues. She is a 2005 convertible with 90,000 miles
I have no other issue other than this is the 6th battery I have but in.
Chrysler replaced the switch for the fog lights (which were going on by themselves) and things were good for a while I even bought a better battery.
Can anyone help. 2005 Turbo Convertible.

I have the same car...seems ok
unless I leave it sit for a few weeks 3-4
the battery will drain..(if I run it once a week no problems)
had the same issues with an 83 Goldwing motorcycle
battery drain... had to put a battery disconnect on it..
lot of electronics still draw power with the car off....

Like MJ said....and....
By a good battery, with plenty of amps; and a good warranty.
Try Interstate Batteries.

If you don't tend to drive it often; get a trickle charger that will cut off.

There is nothing electronically different that makes a battery in a convertible unique.

Chris also has the install for the fog lights don't pay anyone any more for that job. Just FYI I have replaced 3 of the fog lights switches in last two years... all led now too so there is no load... Don't know why
