Electrical draw

00 7.3l Eddie Bauer. Has .650 amp draw with nothing on, and after sitting for over 8 hours. So everything should have went to sleep. If I pull pats/gem fuse (15) my draw reduces to .75. After pulling radio fuse its .15. Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem could be, or had the same issue? Any help would be appreciated.

So your draw increases from .65a to .75a when you pull the fuse to the GEM?

.075 is a hair on the high side but not bad. You need to pull your GEM out and start pulling wires off one at a time to track down what is drawing the power. I just went through it with my 00, found most of the power going to the transfer case so I am using it as a excuse to put in a manual.

I just had to replace my gem for the same problem. The windshield had a small leak and when I took the gem apart it was full of the green dieses.

I replaced my gem last year and had no water leak then or now. I put a maintainer on the batteries and it holds for about 60hrs before shutting down from overload. Today the theft light started flashing so I'm thinking the draw on my batteries is from the pats unit. Where is it and can I change it?
