You have a large battery drain somewhere. Use a DVOM and set to DC volts, unplug fuses one at a time until you see the voltage stabilize.

Also check relays, a stuck relay will be hot to touch with engine off.

The likelihood of the drain is the final stage unit for the blower fan. It is located in the right footwell area, remove the carpet trim (it is secured with a Phillips screw) to gain access. Is this a right hand drive car?
