05 Mustang GT draw problem

Hello,
I have a 2005 Mustang GT that is almost 2 years old with only 6000 miles on it. For the past year or so I have had a very intermittent draw that kills the battery after sitting for 2-3 days. I had it at the dealer and they have only been able to catch the draw 1 time and it went away before they could finish the diag. The battery, radio, and smart juction box have all been replace to no avail. All accessories are turned off, and I can open the door, shut it and lock, nothing else, and the veh will die in a few days. Has anyone else had this problem? or any ideas on what might be causing it. Any feed back is appreciated. Thanks.

If Ford can't fix it and it's under warranty, make em give you a new car under lemon law.

alternator.

95% of voltage irregularities can be cause by the alternator.

Why would the alternator be causing a draw when the car is sitting in the garage off...

Can be as simple as the battery is dirty, its recommended to clean the outside of your battery battery box with baking soda and water.
