Try MadNoel's suggestion. If the vehicle still drains the battery then you will have to conduct a drain test. Which involves connecting an ammeter in SERIES between the battery negative terminal and the earth lead. Then check the current draw. Anything like 0.03 or less is fine. If it is more then you need to pull the fuses one at a time. Checking as you take each one out to see if the drain has gone. When you find the fuse that is controlling the drain then you can identify the circuit that is at fault and you can conduct more tests on that circuit.
