Hello,

Did the radio ad speedometer quit at the same time? remove the radio fuse and see if drain goes away.

the best way to find the cause of a draw is to install an amp meter in line of the positive battery caable and see how much of a drain there is. you would need to wait for a few minutes for modules to go to sleep. then pull fuses one at a time and see which circuit is causing drain. I have seen several radios cause a drain so I would start with that fuse.

There is not a recall on an 03 for this. Some of the newer ones had a recall for a drain.
