First thing to check is that the electricity stops flowing when the
switch is turned off. I would disconnect a battery cable, then use a
voltmeter between cable and battery terminal to see if there is any
current. Should be 00 unless you have installed something like a clock
that is always on. Any voltmeter/multimeter would do for a quick check
of this, then you can go circuit by circuit to chase down any problem.
