Electrical short with my radio ?

I have a weird situation where if I turn off my car radio and then my D-90, wait 30 minutes, I have to get a jump start. If the radio is left on, and I turn off the d-90, she starts right up.

Sounds to me like some sort of short, but the guys who installed the radio say it is nothing they did.
Does it sound like a short? Any ideas on how I can prove it and get the radio store to honor a fix?


Really strange, yesterday, drove 30 miles to the Santa Monica hills for a hike, D-90 left for 3 hours. Starts right up. Driving home stop at costco for some photos, in/out in 30 min and the battery is dead. Only diff was i turned off the radio on the drive back.

Help

Do
you have an amp? How about a DMM/VOM (Volt/Amp meter)?

No amplifier, hmmmm sounds like something is wrong with the radio or how it is wired.
