Question about 2005 Kia Optima
Pulled fuse to amplifier and stopped the drain however the battery drains after two days
Remove the battery earth wire and place a multi meter in the circuit to check for the amps ( current being drawn ) This will indicate which item is still on. IF there is no power movement then replace the battery as it shorting out internally. Have a load test done on the battery to see if it is a bad cell.

I'm guessing the radio is not the OEM radio that came with the car. If i'm right and the radio was changed for an after market one, then the yellow and red wires from the radio are probably mismatched or paired. The red one is the one that tells the radio to turn on and off when you turn the key, and yello one is the one directly to the battery for memory purposes. If they are not paired or crossed, or if the radio is the OEM one after all, then the radio is defective and probably has a grounded output or something like that, and needs to be repaired or replaced.
