I was reading some Technical Bulletins this past weekend and came across a parasitic draw being cause by the instrument cluster; the installation of a diode solves the problem. (I went back tonight and looked again and this one was for the 2008 'Vert)

If you can, go to the dealer and have them check your VIN number, because it was VIN specific, no testing needed.

Here the the TSB Number (for all models except Routan) with the Parasitic Draw Testing Instructions ... 27 08 04 August 28, 2008 2016076
