Excess drain on battery due to faulty radio on Chrysler Aspen

A weak or dead battery may be caused by power draw from the radio. If the radio display flickers with the key removed and the doors closed, radio replacement will be needed.

Radio display is blank, Radio operates but cannot use the NAV system due to lack of display. Dealer wants to replace radio at HUGE cost>
Dead battery, Gages jump all over and clicking noise has happened to my Aspen too. This time it also is making another weird grinding like noise (almost the same sound as when you move your seats only louder. This seems like an extremely common problem the more research I have done - I am stongly considering reaching out to an attorney.

My battery continually drained overnight. The third Chrysler dealer I went to told me it was my radio. Since Chrysler no longer has a rplacement radio I bought an after market radio. This stopped the problem for three months and now I have the same problem. My other major problem is that I live in the greater Nashville area and there is NO Certified Hybrid Technician who can work on my car. Nobody wants to touch it and Chrysler Customer service seems to care less about my issue.
