Disconnect the positive cable and put a test light in line between the battery cable and battery. Light on you have a drain even can be faint (the light).

Pull fuses until the light goes off and the last fuse pulled is the circuit that is causing your problem, but keep pulling fuses until you have pulled them all, youcould have more thnaone problem.

Doesn't work in newer cars which have continuous drains.

Well the car has an alarm so wouldn't that mess with it? I know it has a red LED that's on 24/7 on the dash whenever the battery is plugged in.
