Install a meter in series with the neg battery cable. After all modules go to sleep your drain amount should be 50milliamps or less. Trick all doors into thinking they are closed by tripping the latches manually so the vehicle remains asleep while you have access to the interior. Pull ALL fuses and breakers 1 at a time until you see the meter read close to the given spec. This will disclose the circuit that the draw is coming from and let you see the actual amount of the draw live as you are investigating.

Why is my battery draining in my 2004 chevy 2500 HD


Lots of reasons ! The most common cause of battery drain on a good battery is leaving an accessory on (courtesy light?). A pure guess with no information would be the starter is on its' last legs. It might be the alternator or there could be a short to ground from corrosion/age. There are lots of troubleshooting guides on the web for a battery draining, here is an example:

My 2007 Chevy silverado battery keeps draining. I thought it was from the radio not shutting off when I open the door but I shut the radio off and the battery still drains. What can be draining it?


The battery itself may have an issue? You could try disconnecting the cable when you park and see if something is truly draining the battery. If it is you may notice a slight spark when you disconnect the cable. The alt may have a bad diode so it will charge the battery but drain it once the motor is shut off? Or it could be something like you suggested. The radio remembers its settings by being connected all the time. However a stock radio does not take much from the battery.

My radio on my 2005 Chevy silverado wont turn off when i turn my car open and open the door and its making my truck die, changed the ignition switch this did not help. Any other suggestions?


its making my truck die - What does that mean? Is the truck's engine shutting down while it is running, or is the battery being drained such that the engine will not start?
Is the radio ON even when the ignition switch is turned off? Your radio power wire may be connected to a point that is always on instead of to a point that is controlled by the ignition switch.

What is making my 2005 Silverado's blower motor stay on high even when the truck is turned off? It keeps running, it drained my battery.


Your BCM (body control module), must have gone bonkers. Have it checked out. Might just need a little tweaking-like re-setting.
Good luck.
