This is normal will go away after module sleep occurs 1-3hrs with no activation of anything. Its for memory power modules will stay alert mode for faster response to inputs.

Then why is it draining battery
Expert:  Dr.carz replied 1 year ago.

How long does it take to drain down?

What type of tester are you using and how are you connected?

Had a remote start put on worked fine took it back had. It checked to see if it was the problem but it wasn't was told it was memory fuse
Expert:  Dr.carz replied 1 year ago.

Was wondering how you had the 200ma reading and overnight is at least 1 amp draw. If the wiper motor is not in park the module will keep tring to get it there have seen many wiper do this but more like 6-8a draw.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

How do you know the "fuse 15 has a drain of 200 MA"? Dr Carz asked you, but you said, "not using tester just pulling fuse".

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

Anyhow, remove the run/park relay, if it comes out and recheck the drain, after the modules go to sleep.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

Here is the wiring diagram, in case we need it.
