2001 ford ranger: V6..The battery keeps dying..alternator tested

Customer Question

I have 2001 ford ranger with V6. The battery keeps dying. I had the alternator tested it is good. I have found that fuse 26 in the fuse box is drawing 12V at .5-1amp. I believe this to be the cause of the battery dying when the car is off. Do you have an idea what could be causing this circuit to discharge battery.

I found some wiring information on your fuse. Try disconncting each component to isolate the problem.
