Something is draining my battery... and it's not HFL
so last sunday i get to my car and my battery is completly dead... take the battery to autozone... they charge it.... i pop it back in and she starts up...
take her back to autozone... and alternator passes...
drive for a day and she's fine... the next morning... same problem... take it to autozone.. they charge it... but this time i pick it up like 4 hours later and the battery is not holding charge... no biggie... buy a new battery cause i missed acura full coverage on the battery by literally 2 weeks...
this morning... she's dead again... autozone charge it agian for me (they're literally across the street from me) and she starts up again.
Read threads on hfl error being the reason, i don't use my hfl cause i like listening to music while on the phone so i use a jawbone... press both talk and end at the same time and she passes diagnostics... read somewhere to check fuse 6 and 7 and they're clean...
any other ideas? i have a car i can borrow for a week.. should i disconnect the battery for now?
any help is greatly appreciated... thank you in advance...

Good luck with this. I know many people, including myself has suffered the battery drain from the HFL unit.
I don't ever use mine either, but it doesn't mean it's not active or working. The way I noticed mine was in "booting up" aka battery drain mode, was to scroll through the options on my dash until HFL was selected and then press the Select button. It read "HFL Booting Up".
I would have never known it was doing so unless I happen to press that button while playing around. I brought it to the dealer for some other issues and mentioned that. Turns out the units faulty and being replaced under warranty. Good luck!

Do you have a gps tracking installed in ur car ( antitheft...)
It does that when the car gets a few years old and battery gets weaker due to wear, since the tracking device is always on, it will drain the battery quite quickly since the capacity of your battey reduces over time.
