So, I've determined my slow battery drain is due to the amplifier under the rear seat. So since I've unplugged my amp my battery has stopped dying. Since I know nothing about electric diagnostics, is there anyway to just bypass the amp so I can still listen to my radio? After I unplugged my amp, I can't play my radio. It turns on, but no much can be heard. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
You can always put a switch in series in the remote wire that turns the amp on. I had to do that because I had three amplifiers and they would drain the battery after three weeks or so.

If your going to go with an aftermarket head unit, i recommend Alpine's CDA-9887, I love mine, ive had it for years and it sounds amazing on the stock speakers once tuned. If you do decide to buy one, I can send you my settings so you don't pop your speakers.
test and see if the brown/white wire at the amp has power with the car off
and if it does not what would you use a a remote? im trying to bypass my infinity amp with a alpine headunit and cannot get any power what so ever to headunit. seems like a remote or power problem and it has me stumped.
