Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.

You need to perform a parasitic drain test. You need a multimeter, disconnect the negative post on the battery and connect meter in series. You are measuring current or amps. You then pull out fuses one at a time to narrow down the circuit that is causing the drain.
