very sorry for the delay.........
There are a number of things that can cause the Static & Battery Drain & you will have to trace the issue.
.

is the radio and amp seperately located and waht does the door have to do with it? also the push button on off doesnt work is it worth fixing or easier to remove and replace?

.

Is the Static happening when car is moving or just still?
Is the Static happening on AM?, FM? Cassette? CD? or ALL?

You need to check the Driver Door Key Light & Handle to be sure the Door Handle is closing completely & is turning off the Key Light

IF this is Factory Radio:
The AMP is located Under center of rear package tray
Be sure Battery Connections are Clean & Tight

.

Let me know if you need further
