All kinds of electrical problems....

03 6.0L F250, I have a draw, I checked all the fuses...Under the dash, under the hood and I can't find the one that is causing the draw. Batteries go dead overnight. It does have a python remote start wired into it, I pulled the three fuses I could see and still didn't relive the draw on the batteries. So, today went to start it and all it would do was honk the horn. Took the fuse for the horn out and it still wouldn't start. Disconnected battery cables, tried again and all it would do it honk. Then took the three fuses I found for the remote start and truck started. Now I have no cruise, which I'm thinking is on the horn fuse....and the doors lock steady. HELPPPPPP

Seems to me like something went wrong with your remote start system. You might have to trace those wires to see if one of them is grounding out.

Is it a Python 991 ? I've got a 991 and have all kinds of different problems with it and i think it is also causing a dead battery condition... about to pull this POS alarm out of the truck and use the wires to tie the doors shut and keep the thieves out lol
