that is a new scenario IMHO there is no reason even if it stayed on a Live wire would draw enough to kill batteries

You know that you can hold down the esc button for 5 seconds and the unit will turn off without unplugging it, right?

I agree with Zmann. I don't see how it could draw enough juice to kill a battery. I never turn mine off.

You might have a short in the obd connector somewhere. Or your batteries are just about to bite the dust.
