That fuse controls basically the entire power system. Have you pulled each fuse individually and check the draw after each one is pulled? Also what reading are you getting for draw?

I checked all of the fuses inside the car, but not all of the fuses in the engine compartment. When I pulled the ip b+ 50a the draw went from .22 to 0. I can try and pull the others from the engine compartment.

Yeah pull all of the fuses from the engine compartment one at a time. Having the battery go dead overnight?
