I had the same symptoms that I couldn't figure out until one evening I noticed my brake lights were on very dim (no one in car). I found the brake relay, located just above the brake pedal arm, had some corrosion. I ordered a new one but while waiting for it to come in I took the old one apart and easily cleaned the points. The old one is still in the car (5 years later). So, my guess is that you have a slight short somewhere - switch, light, window motor, etc. You might start by pulling the battery ground cable off and charging up the new battery. Then measuring the current flow (amps) with everything off (meter is between the disconnected ground cable and battery). Then pull fuses one at a time until the battery drain/amps go down.

The cadi is 20 years old now - 170,000 miles and still no issues.
Due to retirement, I do not drive it much anymore. Any ideas on how I can best maintain this car in good running order when driving less than 3,000 miles a year? All fluids are new, radiator/shocks/ignition all fairly new, oil is synthetic, tires great and I try to take it for a run every other week. I just don't want this nice car to deteriorate due to me neglecting something.
What else can I do? Ideas welcome.

Now they will not come on. Was told that happens for that year car. Told the board is shoot. If true is it worth getting fixed. was told to buy gps for car so I could see speed and distance though that since I have no gas gauge or speedometer or odometer?
