A friend of mine had this happen to his SRT8. One day he went out and the battery was dead. Took it in, and they found nothing wrong. This happend again and then on the 3rd time, he took it to the dealership and threw the keys at them and said call me when the problem is fixed. After a couple of weeks, they called and they had a few questions. The first question was did he have a 2nd fob, and the answer was yes. The second was did he lock his doors, and the answer was yes. They then asked where he kept his fob's, well he kept one on his key ring, and the other one was left on one of those key racks people have to hang keys on. This one was kept just inside the house from where the car was parked in the garage. They said, there is your problem. The car and fob are communicating and when the car is not used for a long period of time, 3-4 days, the battery would go dead.
He moved the fob to the other side of the house, and so far no problems. Battery has not died since.
Think of how close to the car you are keeping your fobs as this may be the problem if your battery has died.
