That's what I was thinking but where the heck is that thing? I've never seen a pic, just that it's behind the fuse block or something.

I remember that a while back ford was having issues with the abs motor or something with the abs continue running under the truck after the vehicle is shut off. That would cause a drain.

The only reason I remember that is because the person said that fuse deals with the abs.

Thought the ABS motor was at the front, kinda behind the driver headlight.

Wait a min.....

The PCM & GEM are Supposed to be drawing power All the time. You would need to know how Much power it's consuming to know if it's your problem. And remember, when you first reconnect it the amount of "draw" from there will decrease slowly for about 1/2hr before reaching a stable point.

If you stopped when you got to #15, Keep Going, see if there's another circuit with a draw that's not supposed to be there (unlike #15)

The most likely culprits are the radio, alt, dash cluster.
