There is a load that's draining the battery. Something is still energized with the key off. Remove any power supplies or devices plugged into the cigarette lighter. Hook a digital volt meter across the battery, read the voltage and write it down. Pull a maxi fuse and check the voltage. If the voltage remains the same, put the fuse back and pull another. If the voltage rises slightly, you found the drain. It doesn't take much to drain a battery. Mine went dead in a couple of days when I left my GPS plugged in.
