I'm GW. Reading this post, the windows should not work with the key off. I have diagrams. The battery drain should be related to the windows being enabled with the key off. There are alot of diagrams to post, so if you bear with me, we can solve this issue. Do you have any diagnostic tools?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes.Last time I sent this question it was thought to be a wire shorting or exposed in the switch. I was not able to trouble-shoot and misplaced the diagrams.I am out of town and will not be able to do anything until this week-end.The sun roof works like the drivers door without key.Turn ind. and wipers ok.Windows should work with key off until open door. You can open door and remone key and roof will open and drivers window will go up and down. Pax window inop at all times. I checked and power from each wire would light the leed. Thanks GW.

I'd be looking at the retained accessory power relay first. I'll post the diagrams when you are ready to fix this issue, just let me know. GW
