Sunroof issues

Hey guys I need some help and I don't know where else to turn. I have a 2003 tiburon. I bought it 5 months ago and in that time it has been in the shop 4 times. My sunroof leaked which I know was a problem with the
03s. I have seen many people with this complaint. The dealership fixed the leaking, but has refused to look at my amp. I am now having a problem with my battery. I will drive for a month or so and then out of no where the battery dies. I mean completely dies. No dummy lights no interior lights nothing. My car is now in the shop once again and the service manager says that it is just a bad battery. I know for a fact that my amp is pulling 12volts while the car is off. I need to know what I need to do to fix this issue. I want the dealership to replace the amp, but they haven't made notes of this problem. I am extremely pissed right now b/c I love this car. This wouldn't be a problem if the service guys would just check it out. I am willing to pay for it. The whole thing is bullshit. I always feel like b/c I am a woman they think I don't know what I am talking about. I am not stupid. I work for a dealership and know that there are ways to get them in trouble but that doesn't help the fact that my car is not working that way it should. If anyone has any ideas let me know. If you know of any web sites that I can print out other reviews on this issue please let me know. I am hoping that if I can put other complaints in front of this guy that maybe I can get somewhere.

The subject line is sunroof issues. The sunroof has been repaired, and now seems to have no issues.
You do, however, seem to have some electrical problem. You may get a better response if you titles the ost "electrical issures" or similar.
When does the battery "die" exactly? When it is running? When yo go to start it up? After it has been sitting for an hour, day, week month?
What "amp" are you talking about? Every electrical component in the car draws 12 volts when in use since it is a 12 volt system. Once the batter "dies", how do you get going again?

Every electrical component that is powered up uses 12V. What you need to know is the amperage draw.
With you car off, there should be no more than a 50mA draw. If it's significantly in excess of that, a process of elimination procedure needs to be begun to determine exactly where the draw is originating.
It's certainly possible that the amp could have been damaged by a leaking sunroof. The amp is behind the left rear seat side trim panel. I find it believable that water could have entered the amp due to a leaking sunroof.
Heck, I think the leading repair for Oldsmobile Aleros with inoperative door locks was to replace the sunroof glass (along with the affected fuse box). The glass leaked water and it ran into the fuse box.
