Question about 1992 Volkswagen Jetta
Your mechanic is an idiot. Seriously, find someone else. Ask friends and co-workers who that would recommend.
The radio memory surely will NOT drain the battery in just 5 days.
You need to get at very least a volt meter. Measure the battery with the car and all accessories OFF. Should be 12-13 volts.
Start the car and measure with the car running. Should be 13-15 volts. If this checks out, you more than likely have a drain.
Next you need to get a DC ammeter that's pretty sensative. Disconnect the negative cable. With everything off and doors closed connect the ammeter between the battery and the negative cable. If the draw shows more than 25-50 milliamps you have an excessive draw. Pull fuses one at a time and see what the drop is each time you pull one. When you find what fuse shows the biggest drop when removed, see what is powered in that circuit so you know what components to go after
