comment Battery drains by itself when vehicle is parked (parasitic draw)
In my car the alternator itself was causing the drain (with engine off). I guess it was shorted somehow. nileor's answer below suggests this can happen with the starter as well. I removed the alternator, took it to a local alternator shop where they confirmed it was bad with some kind of bench test, and rebuilt it for me (about $50). After I installed the new alternator, the drain was gone.

comment How to amplify car speakers without stereo?
Thanks. I actually do have a switch like that which I can use. Now I just need to figure out exactly what product I want to wire it up to, and go buy that product.

Thanks for that. I suspect it's at least possible because I've seen car radios with AUX inputs and the like. Dumb question: where's a good place to buy something like this? It seems like kind of a specialty product.
