Default Battery being Drained

Earlier this week I went out to start my car (after it had been sitting for about 30 minutes) and my 2006 PT Cruiser wouldn't start. Took the battery out and went to have it tested. The test came back that the battery was perfectly fine just had low amps. Took the battery home and charged it up to 100% and bought new battery connectors. Once the battery was fully charged up put it back in my 2006 PT Cruiser and started up perfectly fine.

Today (2 days later) my wife and I went to breakfast. We came back home for about 30 minutes then went out to go grocery shopping and my PT wouldn't start up again. Charged my battery again (only took about 10 minutes since it was almost at a full charge) and took my PT to Advanced Auto Store for them to run test. They said that my battery needed to be recharge and that something was draining my battery.

Anyone have any suggestions as to what might be draining my battery so quickly?

Thanks for the help

If you have fog lights, check that there not on by actually looking at them, Multi-Function Switch could be bad....if so pull the fuse to fog lights till you can replace switch.
