typically you can find me around 63rd and Wentworth, anyway, maybe try not locking the car overnight. I had a 635CSi that was draining the battery cause the door lock heaters were malfunctioning, not shutting off. The door would unlock OK but then the car wouldn't start. Then, in the spring I noticed that the door handle was warm past ambient temputure...Just a wild guess though....good luck
