    MY CADI CTS 2004 IS ALSO DOING THE SAME THING EXCEPT THE BATTERY IS NOT DYING OUT... I'VE HEARD THAT IT'S A COMPUTER PROBLEM BUT I'M NOT SURE I BOUGHT MY CAR WITH 2 ACCIDENTS ON IT AND I THINK THOSE ACCIDENTS HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT, BUT IM NOT SURE... IT COULD ALSO BE SENSORS BUT THEN THAT WOULD BE A LOT OF SENSORS. I GUESS I WILL BE AWAITING AN ANSWER AS WELL.

    I had a similar problem. It was the ECM.
