Hello, it must have a draw for it to discharge in that period of time.You could put a battery disconnect on it to quickly disconnect it but then everyday you would have to open the hood to reconnect. I have seen things such as a stuck power seat switch and most commonly the factory radio cause current draws. Here is a video on how to test it yourself. Some vehicles you need to wait up to an hour for the computer modules to enter a sleep mode and measure true draw if any is found.localize the draw by removing fuses from the underhood and interior fuse panels. once the draw drops off you know what circuit and features to test. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFCT-YZbU5o
