2003 GMC sierra 1500: amperage..4 amps on the abs abs light

Customer Question

2003 GMC Sierra 1500HD with draining battery. I have checked for amperage draw.

I get 4 amps on the ABS fuse....and my ABS light is on. When the ABS module is disconnected...the draw goes away. I'm guessing this needs replaced.

I get 4 amp draw on LBEC2 fuse. When all door fuses and relays are pulled(2 lock relays, PDM fuse, and DDM fuse) this draw goes away. Disconneting the driver's side control module does nothing.

I get a 4 amp draw of fuse MBEC1. I have yet to find where this have not narrowed down anything.
