I have a 1993 BMW 325is. I am experiencing a 90 milliamp draw on the high beam circuit. Fuses 29-30 draw 40 and 50 milliamps in a key-off position. Remove one fuse and the remaining one shows 90 milliamps. My fog lights are not working now so I was wondering if, because BMW grounds the foglights through the positive high beam circuit, that the foglight switch may be bad and thus causes the drain. My other thought was the stalk switch which activates the high beam having a short. Definitely there is a short somewhere.

You will have to unplug each component on the fuse until the draw goes away. I don't have wiring for your vehicle, so I can't be more specific.
