Question about Cars & Trucks
I conducted a battery electrical draw test using a test light and discovered that the problem was coming from the interior "room lamp" upon pulling the fuse to that circuit from the engine compartment fuse box. I removed the lamp assembly and also the 4 door switches but when I insert the fuse back in the draw continues. I have checked the trunk light and all other interior lights and confirmed that they are completely off. Additionally I have pulled all other fuses and relays however the draw is still ongoing. Can anyone advise on a solution? Thanks in advance for your assistance and Happy New Year
Check the glove box light. I have found that they are bad about causing a draw but are easily overlooked.

I'd remove panel as/if necessary so that I could remove connector at power trunk latch, and see what happens from there. If interior lights work o.k. and no drain, then you found your source of drain/short.

Some newer vehicles will need resetting of computer after messing with battery. Check owners handbook or repair manual for your specific vehicle.
