The idea that there could be a short at the fuse box makes sense. Possibly in the inside? Ill research/take a look.

When I unplugged the previously stated components it only caused the battery to drain slower, still a drain just not as much. Ex) with everything plugged in I got a 0.59 drain and with radio faceplate off I got a 0.38 (I trying to remember those numbers from a few days ago but the point is still the same, still a drain just less of it when units unplugged).

Also the cd player has been installed for years and had never cause a drain before so it seems unlikely that those two wires would be switched and causing a drain now. But I'll look into that too.
