Radio & AMP fuses causing parastic drain
I have an '05 CTS with the Bose audio. Got up a couple days ago to a dead battery. No lights were left on or doors open. Got a jump and the car ran great for errands the rest of the day. Figured it was a fluke. The next morning I had the same issue. Battery checked out good so I ran a drain test and narrowed it down to the 10A & 30A fuses for the radio/display and the AMP. Nothing has changed before/after we started having the issues.
I'm a dumb dumb when it comes to car electrical and audio troubleshooting. Any ideas or similar issues/solutions?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Radio & AMP fuses causing parastic drain
Had a similar issue with my 02 dts. Bought the car private sale. Day I picked it up, radio was not working. Car was completely dead a day and a half later.
Long story short, brought car to dealer who told me the radio was shot. Replaced the radio with OEM off eBay and so far have not had any problems. Dealer installed the radio so I don't knw if he did anything other than just replacing the HU.
