I pulled every fuse one at a time nothing changed the draw. If I am doing it right its on an un-fused circuit; starter, cold start, alternator.

I was convinced when I realized the windows and power seats wee on this circuit it was one of those! But I re-checked and pulled the fuses and no difference.....one of the passenger seat motors is not working and the passenger window wont go down so I figured a motor winding had come apart....Wouldn't pulling the fuse have detected that?

Here is another interesting point.

I turned the meter to the continuity setting and put one end on the wire that is showing the draw and the other on the fuses, one at a time.

Almost every fuse showed continuity.

Does that indicate its a dead short to the chassis somewhere?

I am wondering if its diodes in the Alternator again.
