using a test light to check or find draw isn't a good idea infact may show a problem is there that real isn't. Use a amp meter. the most draw that should be on the battery is .025 and some newer cars is .040 and that is after all the moduals and computer shut down which on some (few) of the newer vehicals can be up to an hour. The next step is start pulling fuses till you find which one is causing the draw. The alternater and starter don't always have fuses so the wires have to be disconnected from them. Once you find which fuse look in the manual (don't use the fuse cover) whay all that fuse feeds then start unpluging items one at a time. Quick checks would be dome light, glove box light, trunk light and sunviser light. Remeber NO TEST LIGHTS

Has to be a cable connection issue of some sort. Check the other end of the battery cables, either the ground connection to the chassis, or power connection to the under hood fuse box. Could be that one of the battery cables has broken inside the insulation yet the connector looks good. Try using a cheap ohm-meter to see if there is a break in either cable ...keep looking!
