2012 Ford Escape - Electrical Gremlins

Replaced battery, problem with alarm going off randomly, power windows not intermittently, maybe draining battery

Ask your shop to measure the battery drain current with everything off. They may have to monitor it over several hours. Consider something like the wind blowing on the door, making the computer thinking somebody was getting in, as a potential cause. Check for faulty door opening switches, etc.
