You'll probably have to turn everything off and use an amp meter in-line with the battery to see how heavy the current drain actually is. If you find more than a very slight current drain, (enough for the clock and radio memory for example) you might want to start pulling fuses to find out where the current drain actually is. Once you get the circuit isolated, you can follow down to the individual component by pulling some of the connectors in that circuit. It's a difficult and often annoying process, but that's about the only way unless you're incredibly lucky and find the problem by just pointing.
