Damnit. I've been beating myself up over a mysterious batter drain issue for the past several days. First I thought it was the lift gate switch. Then I thought it might be a ground. It was only yesterday evening that I realized the radio clock was still on after removing the key. I missed that detail previously (assuming that it was supposed to work that way). Today I realized my key could be removed while driving....and while in ACC position.
Found this thread and realized my drain was due to accidentally leaving the WJ in ACC overnight. Now that I know the key is so easily removed in ACC, I just need to be more careful.
