No. Something is draining the battery. Maybe a glove box or trunk light. Maybe something left in plugged into the cigarette lighter socket. How To Perform a Parasitic Draw Test - EricTheCarGuy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF1gijj03_0

...well it does a few micro-volts if your remote control will put out the signal, it takes a bit of power to "be listening" for the command~...also you clock may have a bit of parasitic drain and ECU probably needs to maintain too~
