This lamp is supposed to be on to act as a deterent to potential thieves.They are usually only a L.E.D and the current draw is negligable. Batteries are far superior to how they used to be,and are expected to cope easily with these things and still fire the engine up after parking. Don't go there is my opinion.

What keeps draining your car battery?

Either the battery has a dead cell, which will normally drain it overnight, or something is on pulling power from the battery. If the battery has a dead cell it will have to be replaced.

You may not even be able to charge it with a dead cell. If the battery is still fully charged the next morning then you have another problem. Check all the lights on the vehicle.
