So you have a parasitic power drain when the system is off. You can narrow the fault quite quickly if you have access to an ammeter (multimeter set to DC current). connect the ammeter in series between the battery negative terminal and its cable. Note the power consumption when everything is off. Remove and return each fuse in turn and each time note the current change. Check them all just to be thorough. There will be one circuit fuse that will be responsible for the majority of the current draw. It is this circuit that needs to be examined for a short or maybe a light being left on (glove compartment and trunk courtesy lights are the usual culprits). It maybe that you cannot spare the time immediately to resolve the issue so in the mean time leave this fuse out and reconnect the battery, which should now hold its charge. Good luck
