Exclamation Alarm?

My battery keeps going dead. I have been told that the battery is perfect, the car is charging really well.. so it must be draining somewhere, and I'm guessing its the burglar alarm.
Anyone knows how to disconnect it? Where do I start?

i had a similar problem and also thought it was the alarm, but it turned out to be the water pump wasn't shutting off even when the engine was cold, due to a stuck thermostat.

Why guess? Do the diagnosis and you will KNOW. Then fix it.

That was happening to mine, it turned out to be the driver's side switch for the passenger window. I disconnected it for now.

Is this car your daily driver? Or does it sit for a long while between drives? My battery had to be recharged every couple weeks when I was only driving it occasionally.

The car is a daily driver. The battery had gone bad, so I changed it, and now its cranking fine.
