loss of charge

i have a 2005 F-150 4x4 5.4lt Lariet. i have been having an issue with loss of battery power. My stereo which is stock have been remaining on once the truck has been shut off.(draining the battery) when i start the truck and try and turn on the stereo it wont come on, ten minutes down the road the stereo would finally come on. The relay for accessories have been removed, still same results. All fuse to do with stereo have been removed, battery still drains. Now last night the truck was started to move in driveway for snow clearing, and moved back, very short distances, only feet. Now this morning when went to start truck, battery was drained again. Any ideas of the possible cause would be greatly appriciated. Thank you.

common concerns for batt draw is bad wiring in a-pillar to lfront door and in sill plate,best thing to do is put a multimeter set to read amps in series with neg on battery and start pulling fuses until you isolate draw,normal at rest readings should be 50-100ma(.005-.010amps)


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
