2004 passat
At irregular intervals I try and start the car and the battery is dead( 3 or 4 times annually). I have replaced battery and checked voltage draw and seems normal.

what time frame are these irregular intervals and are the doors locked and alarm armed ,even if garaged and what temps is this occuring at?more info would help us help you,and if you mean you only start the car four times a year than nothing will help except a battery charger/tender that supplies low amp/voltage the whole time

The car is driven all most every day. The battrey drain seems to be unrelated to time of the year. It has happened in summer, winter and fall. The car is garaged but unlocked.

Lock the car. There are a few item that stay "awake" when the car is not locked.
