make sure of two things one is any wires touching at the starter to ground or melted and or is the starter drawing too much amperage causing the fuse to blow.starter may have a dead short in it.

Testimonial: "Excellant suggestion. One of the wires was exposed due to rubbing against the brake lines hence the 40 amp. fuse was blowing. This was finally fixed."
BATTERY VOLTAGE CAN DRAIN THROUGH STARTER RELAY OR BAD DIODE IN THE ALTERNATOR.I WOULD REPLACE THE STARTER RELAY.I AM LOOKING AT A ELECTRICAL DIAGRAM.YOU HAVE A 40 AMP IGNITION FUSE THAT FEED THE STARTER RELAY.IF STARTER RELAY HAS A SHORT IN IT.IT COULD DRAIN THE BATTERY.

Disconnect the auxiliary power cable from the under-hood distribution center that runs to the anti-lock brake controller. Remove the ignition relay from this distribution center (this will isolate/eliminate/indicate the problem as the ignition switch). Unplug any GPS add-on device, and any radar detector, stereo amplifier add-on, I-pod, trailer brake controller add-on, anything that did not come on the truck from the factory. These can be frustrating.

I would check the starter and the alternator, also check the battery cables and connections nd check any circuit with a fuse of more than ten amps for a short to ground. Sounds like you might have some bad diodes in the alternator, though.

Have the battery load tested. This is likely a short in the battery itself and not in the car. You will have a small amount of draw in a computer controlled vehicle. This is very normal for the "keep alive". Older cars with no computer will have no draw. Let me know.
