BATTERY CONSTANTLY DRAINING

2005 Ford Freestar

Electrical problem
2005 Ford Freestar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

ran multiple system checks. The battery is constantly draining even when the key is off. The driver's side console lights dont work. Alternator charges above 14 volts when running. However, I have heard that in this particular vehicle it is common for the alternator to drow from the battery when the engine is off due to a faulty diode or somehting else in the alternator. Please tell me what the 0problem could be?
