what are these parts under my hood?

well these two things circled in red stay on and drain my battery. What are they and why would they stay on. the truck had an alarm from the previous owner but doesnt work anymore. Can it be that? also my truck doesnt have the owners manual is anyone can tell me which are the fuses i would appreciate it. thanks in advance

not sure !,dont think the alarm would have anything to do with it , unless they wired it off the power wires from the egr valve , there is a valve there that opens and closes as it goes thru its cycle , maybe a bad valve, short circuit ? , dont believe it should be operating by its self , Diffenitly should look into ,wish i had a better answer for you , GD luck

Electrical problems are always the result of add-ons. Alarms are notorious for this problem as the installer usually takes every available short cut to get the job done.
