check the solenoid switch & also check the positive cable to make sure it's not grounding out

Check the headlamp switch to make sure it's on the off position. If it is not on off position it will drain your battery!To verify it's off, close door if dome lights are still on, then you went to far on the headlamp switch. Turn headlamp switch back one click, close door and if dome light turns off then the problem is solved!
