2008 Honda CR-V Question: Battery Drain

My HONDA 2008 CRV has only 30,000 miles but battery drains after sitting in the driveway for the night. I took it to MIDAS and they said that is not mechanical (the starter is fine). They said it is electrical. Has anyone experienced this?

    Battery drains are not uncommon. Switches for accessories can fail or aftermarket alams are installed and set problems up. A good technician can usally isolate circuit that is causing battery drain and find problem.

    My car does the same thing. Never had a problem until my daughter took it to college now it happened about 5 times. 3 times I have had it to dealer 2-3 tomes Auto club gave it a jump. New battery put in Sept. Now another new battery. Very frustrating. My daughter is in nursing school and needs to know she can count on this car
