    5 amp fuse 99 XPL draining battery

    I have tested my 99 XPL and I found it that my battery is draining. I tested it and when I pull the 5 amp fuse on the mpem it no longer shows any drain. Any idea what could be causing this? Stator short? Starter short? MPEM short?

    Is it draining more quickly than the DESS normally does?

    Well I guess I am not sure. How much does a bad dess post draw usually when its not functioning properly? I have been told by others its probably a shorted MPEM because when I pull the 5 amp fuse all the current stops.

    Try watching the drain and unplugging other things. I've seen bad gauges cause enough current draw to kill a battery in a couple days.
