Usually is the radio. Easy way is to use a small bulb like a peanut bulb or marker light bulb, bend tabs out. Disconnect negative battery connection, make sure all power is off, then put bulb inline with battery negative. Wait about 5 mins or so and there should be no light. Start pulling fuses. On some we do a voltage drop test on the fuse. As to not wake up a module.
