HI there, I am Cam. Can I get your first name please?My first thought is the radio is installed incorrectly and what should be an ignition feed is being draw upon as a battery feed. With that in mind, did they check out the install again? Verify wire colours and such?
On your system there is no ignition feed from the car so a device called a Chime module would need to be used, this would use network signals to turn the radio on like the factory system. If not then an ignition feed would need to be added. I suspect the ignition feed and battery feeds are both connected to the orange battery feed wire.
Ok, as I mentioned Robert, it sounds like its being powered up all the time and killing it. I think they are missing something in the install.
IF not a chime module then hijack an ignition feed from the heater system or something like that.
What did they find then?
Very strange. I am wondering then if the actions simply installing it, they may have bumped something and caused the drain in the system.
