Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

What will need done is to locate what components are tied into that fuses circuit.Then unplug each of those components one at a time until you locate the component that is the source of the drain.Once this is done the component usually requires replacement to correct the drain issue here.

If you can post the name or fuse number and location of the fuse on your model I can see if I can locate the info on this fuse for you just let me know.
