Disconnect the battery wire, and check for voltage to the car with all the switches off, doors and trunk closed. One good test is to put a 12 volt bulb between the battery cable and the car. If it lights, something is on. A relay could be stuck. If it doesn't lite, your battery needs to be tested at a battery store.

    Some little things, like the radio's clock and maybe the car's computer may always be on, but the draw would barely lite a bulb.

Electric drain on the system kills the battery, what could it be?

Just about anything.
You'll need to have someone pull the fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and check for a drain. It could also be the alternator or the battery.

Electrical issue

Check the fuses in the fuse box just above the battery and see if there is anything (fuses) that popped. I did the same thing but got away with nothing being damaged.

Elictrical system flashes on/off, then dies.

when you were driving, after replacing the battery, if u felt the car loosing some horse power, until it dies, then YES its your alternator, it is not recharjing the battery with power, so the car keep on sucking the battery until it dies, try to check your alternator, or check your the plug "located on the alternator itself"

I need to locate the ecm on chrysler town and contry

For 1996-2000 (NS platform), it is located on the driver's side fender. You will have to remove the fuse box to gain access to it. The ECM has two 40 pin connectors.
