Hi.

A blown fuse will not drain any power, rather the opposite. A parasitic draw is always caused by a short or a contact.

If the problem started after fitting the new battery, test using a differetn battery. Even a defective new battery can drain by itself because of an internal short, or because it is not fully charging.

Sometimes finding a parasitic drain may be difficult. You will need to access wiring and test them using a voltmeter.

to start you can try disconnecting factory stereo and car amp if present. Even if the in car entertainment is not an aftermarket one, that is still a common cause for parasitic drain.
