Chasing electrical drain - fuel pump(s)?

87 930

finally getting to the last of the issues on this car.

Battery drains in a few days, I am not too sharp on electrical but there is a ~3 amp (?) drain on one of the ~10 gauge red wires right off the battery (does not go through the fuse panel).

Took the wire off and turned the key and no fuel pumps, touch the wire to the post and the fuel pumps pressurize.

I looked at the wiring diagram from an 87 NA and I cant tell what is going on there; or if it is even the same.

ANy thoughts? Can the pumps start to fail and short like that?

What else is powered on that circuit?

1994 Lotus Esprit S4 - interesting!
