Turn everything off, close doors and boot, leave one window down. Connect amp meter between battery lead and battery terminal. You should be able to read the draining current. Disconnect amp meter and unplug light switch. Close up car (apart from window) and connect and recheck ampmeter. Keep doing this to other systems (alternator, ign switch, boot light, glovebox light etc) until drain current stops. Fix that system.. (I keep saying leave a window down in case central locking cuts in - would not be the first time..........)
