Are you doing all your test with key off and out of ign, all doors and lids closed?
How many amps is the fuse for #2 listed in your post?
Do you have a alarm or a remote installed?
It was over a 3 amp draw.
Yes everything off for the testing. Well the door is open when I was working on the inside but not while doing the battery draw or anything.
20 amp and the one under the hood is 60 amp
No alarm or anything! This all just happened at once. I drove the car back and forth to work and then it sat for a while as I got a different car. Went out one day and no start. Took battery to AutoZone and was swapped for free. Good to go then couple days later it was dead again. Got new alternator. Couple days later same thing. Thats when I started checking into things and learned about the parasitic draw.
Did all the testing and it says it is before the fuse under the dash. So there is 2 wires coming out of it. A large red and an orange. Could they go to a relay that is stuck open or faulty causing the problem?
