I just bought an 05 660. First trip out.
Preveious Owner had installed a "battery isolation switch" He said without it the stereo was killing the battery. I accidently left it on the battery died in about 20 minutes.
It is not the radio.
Recharged the battery unpluged the radio. Battery voltage is at 13.2 turned the disconect switch on, the battery drops about a 1/10 of a volt every other second.
Any body have any ideas?
Also in the battery compartment the are 2 plugs dissconected apear to be relays. didnt seem to make any diffrence when I pluged them back in.

drawing that much of a load its almost a dead short i would think. to find what circuit it is comming from try this
*make sure everything is off you know about-radio, lights, key
*in the dark or almost dark start pulling fuses one at a time slowly
*look for a arc from the fuse to the fuse holder you should be able to see somthing
*make sure the battery has juice before you try this
good luck its more of elimating things
