I have a few of these cars and twice I have experienced power door locks / fuel door lock sticking, drains battery overnight. Pull fuse to test.

Our palindromic friend is correct and I would just like to add the possibility of any number of aftermarket items that often find there way into cars such as alarms or stereos can be a source of a key off draw. Also check the glove box lamp. If this does not fix it repost and we can go deeper.
