Does it start with the fuse removed from the CD?
Sounds like you possibly have a short in your CD circuit.
Electrical problems can be very hard to chase down, and most mechanics won't work on them because it takes so much time and owners get agitated at the cost.
Did you try Googling "Toyota Avalon 2001 wiring diagram"?
If that doesn't work, call the dealer and get an estimate. Maybe it's a known problem to them. Don't turn them loose on it without a firm estimate.

Bottom Line: it might be a faulty stereo amplifier
I have 2008 Avalon Limited. I had all the problems you had. My battery kept draining and I went through three batteries, all the while, the dealership insisted it was my fault for not driving the car enough. The last time it happened a few weeks ago I took the car to another dealership who did a more thorough examination. The culprit was a faulty stereo amp that would not shut off when the car was turned off. I had it replaced under warranty.
If I had not had the extended warranty I would have argued the problem started under original warranty, because this issue began before the manufacturers warranty expired. Don't let them blow you off.

With keyless ignition (Avalon models 2005 and up), you will likely discharge your battery if not in park because ignition will stay in accessory (always on). I have tried that on my 2006 Avalon. Anytime it's not in park, it is going to discharge the battery period.
With the key type ignition, you will not be able to remove the key from ignition. Try leaving your transmission out of park overnight with the key in the ignition. By morning your battery will be discharged.

Probably your scanner can't read ABS codes. Sounds like a wheel sensor got disconnected or damaged.
