I have a 2004 yukon that will intermittently drain the battery. usually seems like if it sits for a couple days it will drain the battery but not always. Any one ever have this problem?

probably not related but i had a customer with a 06 G6 that would kill the battery overnight. ruled out a bad battery and found out the radio was constantly trying to eject a cd that wasn't in the player. replaced the head unit problem solved.

Had a bad diode in an alternator do this. Wouldn't always kill the battery but occasionally truck wouldn't start next morning.
