2008 Hyndai Azera, stereo radio and disc player. Draws

Customer Question
2008 Hyndai Azera, stereo...

2008 Hyndai Azera, stereo radio and disc player. Draws current from battery when car is shut off. Takes two days to drain the whole battery.

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

2008 Hyundi Azera

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Three months. Car at Ouirsman Hyundai for several weeks of troubleshooting and they determined that it was the radio draining the battery. They could not find a replacement for the radio and they don't have the expertise to fix the radio.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

No thank you.

sorry for the delay............

Not sure if Dealer tried to Update Software first, but it does sound like the Unit has a Internal issue, "unless" you have Aftermarket Equipment Installed.
Fuses "AUDIO 1" & "AUDIO 2" Power the Factory Radio, located in the Inside Fuse Panel
Click Attachment Below
IF the Unit is at fault, you could remove the Fuse that is powering the Unit after Key is Off.
NOTE: Those 2 Fuses also power other Components, so they need to be reinserted, prior to Starting Vehicle
The Fuses can affect the Door Locks when Fuses are out.
Be sure Inside Lights & other Components that stay on After Key is turned Off & Driver Door has NOT been opened, turn Off after apprx 10 minutes.
IF NOT or other Components stay ON "after" the Driver Door is opened, then the issue is not the Radio
