Drive the vehicle 10 miles.
At home disconnect the negative battery cable, connect a digital meter to the cable and post, set the meter to DC milliamps.
After 30 minutes what is the mA draw, under 80 is good.
If its high remove fuses one by one leaving them out till you find the circuit causing the high draw.
This needs to be done with all lights disabled and no doors open.
Let me know the results.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
A Auto Zone INNOVA 29$ one will work.

All you can do for a non operational radio and navigation unit is check the powers and ground to them, if they are good then the radio navigation unit is faulty. Would you like a wire diagram?
I do not know about the codes, nor can I can I get them. I sent an offer allowing me to upload diagrams yesterday. For the code questions though i would need to opt out, is that what you would like me to do?
