Default Radio Draining My Battery


I recently noticed my car's battery will drain after two days without driving it. I narrowed it down to my radio fuse, however, I thought maybe it was my radio (stock) so I went out and bought a new one hoping the problem would be fixed.

However, it continues to drain.

So now I have to pull out the fuse in order for my battery to remain charged.

I was wondering if this has happened to anyone or if anyone knows a solution.

Sounds like you have a bad battery or a short somewhere.
