Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

When you are doing the draw test, are you waiting 30 mins for the BCM to go to sleep to help isolate the draw?

If you have pulled all fuses inside, and all fuses under the hood and in the IPDM. Then I would disconnect the meter and while the battery is disconnected, remove the 12 mm nut for the Alternator and pull that cable off. Then re-hook up the meter and recheck. If you still have a draw, then I would disconnect the cable to the starter from the Fusible link and recheck that.

You could have a Alternator or starter causing the draw.

Do you have any more questions on this?
