Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here
The most common cause for the type of battery drain you are having if it clears when you remove fuse #24 is usually a failing instrument cluster. You can check this to be sure with the test step in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open the steps.
