Sounds like something is causing a power drain. If you know how to use an amp meter it's not too hard to find it. Disconnect the positive terminal from the battery with the meter set on amp put one lead from the meter on the battery terminal the other to the cable you took off the battery so that the current goes through the meter if it shows a drain pull out one fuse at a time until no drain seen then just check what that fuse goes to.

Based upon what you have said, it would seem that you have something that is causing a continuous battery drain. Have you added any new electronics to the vehicle that may have accidentally been wired up to a constant hot source instead of one that is controlled by the ignition switch? Many enthusiasts accidentally install stereo amps directly to hot and find they never shut off, killing the battery. If you are skilled at electronic troubleshooting, you may be able to track down a wiring problem yourself. I will warn you that many repair shops will attempt to diagnose your problem, but few are trained to do it efficiently. If you decide to pay a pro to fix it, go to an Auto Electric specialist. They charge more per hour, but will take far fewer hours to locate and repair the problem than the corner mechanic.

First check and make sure your + and - wires are in the wright place and the remote wire coming from the head unit is in the remote spot also make sure you have a good ground and is not loose. Its easy to get the + and - crossed even if you are sure check again I have done this a few times before even after I was for sure...Hope this helped.. The Orange or Red light is a protect light telling you something is wrong just retrace steps and make sure all the wires are connected right if not the wires then most likely the problem lies inside the amp.. Good luck...
