ck to see if you have a trunk light or under the hood light if so remove the lamps from the under-hood light and the doom light and the trunk light then put the fuse back if this fix works then one of the switch is staying open and letting the light continue to burn , if this does not fix try to get someone to unplug the wire to radio then replace fuse see if this is a fix it is a process of elimination and some times takes several tries, good luck and if you have more question feel free to ask without a volt meter and electrical knowledge this is a simple test you can do and it cost nothing but time

SOURCE: battery drainage
Possibly any of the diodes inside the alternator (most likely). In some instances, it could also be the regulator whether it be internal;/integrated to the alternator or external.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
