Hello I will help you with your question,

Have you tested to determine which circuit has the excessive drain?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tha best i can come up with is the body computer. I put a toggle switch and inline fuse at the under dash fuse box and it somewhat worked. I think it is intemittant.
Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.

Have you installed an ampmeter at the negative battery cable and pulled the fuses to see which drops the draw to an acceptable level?

This vehicle is not very advanced and does not have complicated control systems. It is a simple matter to identify which circuit is causing the draw and pull the components on that circuit to see if the draw goes away.

Let me know how I can help you with this

Thank you
