Question about Cars & Trucks
Yes that is because your alternator is powering everything. If you pulled it off and it stopped then there is a problem.... Why is this a problem for you?

djn, I believe you have some accessory that is on when the key is in the off position.
Check to make certain glove box light is not on when the glove box door is closed and the trunk light is not on.
If you have an aftermarket radio or any added accessories make sure they are not wired direct to battery voltage.
If all that checks out, disconnect the battery negative and connect a test light between the battery and battery cable. If the light is on you have a drain in the electrical system. Leave the light connected and begin removing 1 fuse at a time until the light goes out, that will tell you what component or circuit is draining the battery.
Last resort, you may have an alternator drawing the battery down.
Good luck and let me know.

SOURCE: battery won't stay charged
You say your test light was hooked from the negative terminal of the battery to the chassis? This is correct?
If so you don't have a short you have an open circuit.
You will have a bad ground somewhere between the battery and the engine or between the the engine and the body. Trace your grounds.
If you need more help leave a messege in "add comments" and I will help you along.

Hard to tell without testing different sensors.
Try having the throttle position sensor and/or the egr valve checked, one might be at fault. If both ok, further testing will need to done.
