    Try doing a parasitic draw test. Hook an ammeter in series between the negative battery cable and the battery terminal. With all the doors closed and key off there should be a very small reading. The smaller the number the better. If you're draining your battery overnight it has to be drawing quite a bit. I've found that most cars will draw anywhere from 1mA to 250mA without hurting anything. Just keep pulling fuses and unplugging things until the number drops and you've found the problem(s)
