    You have what is called a parastic draw on the battery. You need to take it to a professional. Tell the shop you have a draw on the battery.

    Often aftermarket alarm systems and radios may be installed in such a way they draw too much from the battery. The charging system needs to be properly tested as well. As you can see there are a few things to consider when checking your electrical system. We do have an excellent diagnostic technician here in South Sacramento.
