C4500 kodiak question

Hi Guys,
My 2003, chevy 4500, seems to be drawing off the battery after being turned off. It is causing the battery to go dead. I haven't had the truck that long so any ideas on this would be helpful.
Thanks in advance!

any noises after shutting off? PTO or brake? I had a Kodiak grapple and had issues with the power brake. Does it have air or power brake?

They are power brakes. The only noise after shutting down was the heater fan. I had to swivel the knob back and forth a couple times to get it to shut off. (I will make sure to update thread with progress and solution)
Landrus2, no glovebox light, but I get what your saying.

I will check on the battery and follow up. The battery is located under the passenger side door on one of those battery trays. I think it is pretty easy to get to....

When you get home for the night, might want to try pulling the fuse for the heater fan. If the battery doesn't die with that fuse out, you've found your problem.

After jumping Saturday, ran/drove for an hour. Did not turn on heat/ac or fan.
Sunday, started truck, no problem. Ran truck for 15 minutes with heat and fan on. Tried to shut off fan, would not stop. With heat and fan in off position, I turned off truck. Fan continued to run. Started truck, fan turned off.
Suggestions?
