Default Battery and alternator issue 03 cruiser

I have been having this on goin issue. I have had my battery an alternator checked multiple times and can't figure out as to y my battery is alway dead. I do have a system in my cruiser but I have it set up wit a double kill switch so this wouldn't happen and as a quick kill if the 5 O r near lol ... thoughts should I just replace the battery and alternator and go frum there??

Do you have fog lights? The reason I ask is the multifunction switch tends to take a dump leaving the fogs on after shutting the car down.

I agree, my last multifunction switch turned on the fog lights every time I used the right blinker. I didn't always catch it and had a dead battery in the morning.

How did you check your battery? Did you have a battery load test done?

Did you do the battery load test with the battery in the Pt Cruiser?

What voltage are you getting on the battery with the engine running and not running?
