Default can twilight sentinal stick on? drained battery last night

Something completely drained my battery last night. not even enough power to unlock my doors or light the dash. Has anyone'* twilight sentinal stuck on before? Can that happen?

I guess it could happen. You did check all the forehead smackers, I assume. Dome lights, trunk open, manually left headlights on, stuff like that.

I've had my lights stay on before.....I dunno if they're supposed to stay on when you shut the car off but I've always just manually turned them on and off again manually then they stay off.

They should stay on for any amount of time between nearly immediate to a few minutes, depending on the position of the ****.

yeah i've checked the forehead smackers. all the accessory power should shut off after 10 minutes anyway. The battery was so dead that i don't know of anything but the headlights or a short that could draw that much, but all fuses are good, no signs of major malfunction in the fuse blocks or relay center. My neon wiring looks good, but i'm going to leave them disconnected at the battery until i get home for thanksgiving. I really hope it gets me home for thanksgiving.

Don't rule out ELC and leaky rear struts. That'* the most common battery-killer in our cars.
