Fuse box is not going to help with a new battery going flat. You either have parasitic drain or your alternator is not charging. Or a canbus problem.

Have you recently changed the headunit?

You can get battery drain on pre 2007 cars if some headunits are retro-fitted and the Canbus Gateway is not updated.
