it would take about 350 hours to kill your battery at 200 ma leakage .. between the computer, radio and anything else that has "keep alive" conditions .. i would think 200ma is maybe on the high side of normal .. to kill the battery in 2 days would require a continuous drain of more than 1.5 amps .. that would be about what the trunk light or under hood light would draw .. make sure those are going off .... alternator diodes can have leakage thats very high .. of course if you are measuring the leakage current right at the battery connector then all leakage sources should be included in the reading .. if its only 200ma then you might have a bad battery (low on water or sulfated) .. Pb acid batteries are easily ruined by leaving them discharged for a while .. and the maintainence free types can only handle a few deep discharges .. .

with the aid of a test light disconnect the negative terminal to the battery and connect one end of the test light to the battery and the other end to the terminal cable if its lit there is a draw begin by pulling 1 fuse at a time until the light goes out and that's the draw most likely a glove-box switch not making full contact or a trunk switch even the dome light adjust the switch as necessary either try a shim or possibly bend the fixture forwards or remove the bulb all together if you desire

SOURCE: I have a slow battery
It might be shorted to another circuit. Does ammeter read below 0.30 amps. Sounds like its shorting between door-ajar and radio. You have to back probe circuits until you find the short.
