Parasitic Battery Drain

Radio is the culprit you said ,, head unit , wiring or amp ?
Mine had an aftermarket head unit and was fine for weeks at a time. I put the original head unit in and it went flat in a few weeks, even with the solar panel on it. I just take the battery lead off when I put her away in the shed and put my solar panel on to keep the battery fresh
 
Also there is a difference between locked and unlocked. The battery does not drain as fast when locked. Unlocked it is waiting for something ....FUN. So they are not really asleep if unlocked
 
Figured I would bump this thread and see s any more info has come up .. Since 10 days later my own heart tried to short circuit and had to be jump started .
 
Or your health? That's what I'm thinking since a three year old thread ;)
 
Come to think of it my heart hasn't beat for Years Now!!! Geeez I almost forgot!
Lol lol

It was the ole double whammy short circuit back then … But no I’m more interested in going after the short in my truck so I don’t have to continually disconnect the battery and get my radio back on .

This is a good thread! I read it and actually learned a few things

Electrical problems are a pain in the a$$ 99.9% f the time .. the more info and techniques along with the right tools and how to use them can help .. I learned the hard way when I first started in auto repair .. the head mechanic old timer had me go check the fuses on a car .. I did , pulled it out looked at it , appeared to be good and went back and told him . Well he later called me over and showed me that you can’t always see Visually if something is good or bad ,,, you need to test it .. In this case a simple test light would have found that the fuse was actually bad which would have saved time and headaches . Lesson learned !
