the first time they replace the power window and lock switches and the gauge cluster they had it for 3 weeks. the problem was still there. then they said it was the battery which i had replaced before i even took it there. the alternator was then replaced and it still does it any suggestions?

Have you done any aftermarket wiring to the truck? How long does it take for the battery to go dead?

i had a trailer brakecontroller put in last summer but i never had any problems with the charging until recently. the battery would last about 10-12 hours without going dead but the since the last time it was at the dealer it wont even last a couple hours

Maybe you can try another dealer. 3 eyes are better than 2. Electrical problems can be difficult or sometimes you get lucky and find the problem right away.

If the dealership cannot locate and correct the problem after that long, they obviously don't know what they are doing.

Try another dealership.
