1999 Saturn SC2 Battery constantly dying

Electrical problem
1999 Saturn SC2 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

If I don't start my car everyday, the battery dies. I have changed my battery twice. I have had AAA come out 3 times - they say they cannot detect a drain on the battery. I have disconnected the trunk light, my door lights, anything I can think of. This morning I went outside and my car is making a ticking noise and will not start, but my clock is working inside the car. What the heck?

Do you
have the same problem?

When your battery get's low enough thing's will start to click because there isn't enough voltage to hold them electrically in place so they begin to hold then release causing a clicking noise. Sound's like you have a draw in the system somewhere. How did AAA check for a draw on your car?They usually don't come out and diagnose your car they just give you a jump.
