HDMI Splitter Panel in 2014 Interstate

My battery continues to drain when stored dry, so my dealership and I just went through every power-drawing item in our Interstate and found the only light that remains on is the HDMI splitter box that is mounted on top of the DVD player in the console behind the front TV. Neither of us could figure out how to get those blue and red lights (and the unit) to be powered down so its not draining the battery. The Kenwood radio is off. Both TVs are off. The antenna booster is off. But, we can't figure out how to turn the HDMI panel off. Any ideas? Is it even drawing power or is it fine to stay on? Thanks again in advance.

We had the same problem. Couldn't find a switch and those lights are annoying at night. My husband pulls the plug from the box.

It plugs into an outlet, right? If so then the answer is simple, an outlet switch. http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-F7C016q...+outlet+switch
I don't have an HDMI splitter in my 2012, but I use outlet switches like these to power off the televisions when I'm not going to be using them— televisions also draw power when turned off, in order to be able to receive an "on" signal from the remote.

The BIM (battery isolation module) and solar charge controller also always draw current.

I don't see where it plugs in. The two outlets have plugs for the the TV and DVD player. (I pulled both plugs out, and the lights on the HDMI splitter stayed on.) Not sure how to 'pull the plug from the box', but I can just start pulling plugs and see what works.

My HDMI splitter on my home theater setup is powered by the source device. See if pulling the source HDMI cable causes the LED to go out.

This is our setup - a monoprice HDMI splitter. On the left side is the HDMI output and a 12v power in. The other end with the adapter is buried somewhere in the wall. We just pull the jack from the 12v in.
