Question about 2002 Kia Rio
Agree, you probably have a short. Yes, there are more doohickies these days, but they are all designed to draw minimal current if the car is off. Is the car still under warranty? Even if it is, you may need to provide a little proof before they will face up to the warranty. If you are willing to do a little troubleshooting, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5925550-dead_battery_troubleshooting . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
