Really simple to pull a fuse and measure the current across the fuse contacts. Total draw on the batteries should be less than 100 mA. Anything above that then you'll have to start separating circuits and measuing current draw to find the circuit with the phantom draw.

Mopar is right, there is a faulty circuit draining the batteries.

From my 2001 FSM about the IOD fuse:

All vehicles are equipped with an Ignition-OffDraw (IOD) fuse that is removed when the vehicle isshipped from the factory. This fuse feeds variousaccessories that require battery current when theignition switch is in the Off position, including theclock. The IOD fuse is removed to prevent batterydischarge during vehicle storage.When removing or installing the IOD fuse, it isimportant that the ignition switch be in the Off position.Failure to place the ignition switch in the Offposition can cause the radio display to become scrambledwhen the IOD fuse is removed and replaced.Removing and replacing the IOD fuse again, with theignition switch in the Off position, will correct thescrambled display condition.The IOD fuse should be checked if the radio orclock displays are inoperative. The IOD fuse islocated in the junction block. Refer to the fuse layoutlabel on the back of the instrument panel fuse access

panel for IOD fuse identification and location.
