- check that the alternator and battery is good? free test at autozone. - make sure that all lights (trunk, glove box) are off when the car is off. - to find a leak, measure the amps that are drawn when the car is switched off. Use an ammeter between the negative post of the battery and the disconnected negative cable of the car. Pull/replace fuses till you see a significant drop in amps drawn. Then you know which circuit it is on. If you can get away without that circuit (mine was the cigarette ligther and the clock, on a camry) then do it. my 2 cents i would also recommend that you check your battery cables. mine were bad. changed them and problem solved. make sure that your negative is grounding to a nice clean surface.
