Hi all. SUPER FRUSTRATED....

Battery dies after two days of not driving or driving less than a few miles a day.

Battery has been replaced by Jeep. That did not solve the problem.
Two Pros have tested Alternator, Battery, Starter and Radio...

We have checked all fuses and connections to the battery Multiple Times. With test light and a reader. The only one that pulls or dims the light is the kill switch fuse. Nothing is pulling enough to cause this.

Could this be The PCM? If so, can someone tell us how to check it? Thanks.

When you say "Nothing is pulling enough to cause this" do you mean the parasitic amperage draw and how was that exactly determined?
And how exactly was the alternator tested?
A leaky or shorted alternator diode which could cause this might now show up on a typical alternator test.

Looks like a parasitic drain from what you've said.
Not all that easy to pin down in most cases.
I'd start by checking for a leaky alternator diode and go from there.
