the panel lights come on during the night and drain the battery. I bought a new battery and the same thing continues to happen. The dealers cannot locate the problem. Car drives good once battery is charged, but drains overnight.

Pull the relay box and fuse box, the fuse box probably has a lot of corrosion underneath. - Clean it up. - It was just arcing through the corrosion inside the fuse panel causing all your dash lights to be on even with key out of ignition
