Battery keeps dying

So I recently bought a 95 rio grande with 60k on the engine. It's been running great but the battery keeps dying if I let it sit for more than a day or two. I replaced the old battery and keep having the same problem. I think the issue is the light over the brake release. It's always on and I can't figure out how to turn it off. Is there anything I can do to disconnect it or at least get it to turn off? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The interior light? Rotate the dimmer switch until it clicks off, or unplug the socket from the harness.
