I had a new alpine cd receiver installed in place of my factory unit and I've been having problems with the battery draining. I had a buddy online onvortex that told me he had the same problem and simply switched back to the factory and all is well! Is there some kind of connection issue and is it because my unit is defective, a wire connection, or because it has 45X4 watts?! please help! i appreciate it!

Re: Draining battery! Help! (PinoyG60)

Since I did not trust the OEM wiring, I ran a hot wire from a fused distribution block on my battery to run my stereo system. I have not had any issues with my battery being drained. I also re-ran 4AWG wire to my starter and from the alternator to the battery.
