Default Acura Legend GS Starting issue

Have a 94 Legend GS. Offlate it is giving me starting trouble.
The car's battery went dead and I have changed it.
Have new spark plugs.

The issue is after overnight, when I try to start the car the battery is dead and drained. (it is a brand new battery). When the battery is dead the Trunk lid cannot be opened remotely, or the 4 door locks wil not open no cabin lights.
Not a crank. Just click click. Once I jump start it there is no issue. Car runs perfect and can go how many ever miles I want to.
Hence I cant suspect the relay or ignitor coil or any standard items.
Looks like the battery is drained overnight.

There was some issue with the fan motor running, but the issue stopped after I changed the battery. The door locks keeps cycling some times.

My suspicion is something is draining the battery and I am not sure what it is.

Looked into the FAQ and found not a problem listed.
Hence your help is appreciated to diagnose the problem.

Thanks in advance

An update.
I found the fan continuosly running after the 15 minutes timer. Hence I located the fan relay and pulled it off making the fan to stop. After couple of hours later when I tried to plug the relay back the fan kicks in.

I tried interchaninging the fan relay with wind shield wiper relay and found that the fan was still running.

The water temperature gauge reading is good. It has not over shot. It is below the middle mark. Hence I am not able to suspect the water temp sensor. Which provides input to fan control unit and in turn which drives the Radiator fan.
I am not sure how to check the oil temp.

Both the Radiator fan and Condenser fan is rotating. Hence I have to zero down on either the fan relay (Combined one).

Will keep you posted if it gets resolved.
