The mileage on my dashboard stays on when the car is off. Is this normal?

The battery keeps dying so I'm wondering if that is the reason and if I can fix it?

Not normal, that's why the battery is being drained. Wiring or cluster issue. Maybe someone can add how to go about finding the culprit.

it is actuly normal for it to stay on while your key is out. It should stay on for a few seconds before going out if your doors are closed. If the door is ajar the gauge will stay lit so i would start checking to make sure all your doors are closed properly and check the power wires for the door sensors
