I don't know if the battery is being drained due to a faulty radio but I had the smaller battery replaced. To no avail the car sat at the dealership less than a day and when I went to pick it up it would not start. So the technician threw out some possibilities of what it could be and the radio was mentioned. NOTE: This is not the first time this has happened. I was faced with the battery drainage about 2 months ago.
