just checked fo draw again,and got the 2.1 again,I pulled EVERY fuse seperatly and test light stayed on throughout(tommorrow I will try it with meter but tonight I was alone and much easier just to use testlight) anywho, light never went off,and the only way I can get it to go out is to disconnect firewall connector that I described in earlier post. WTF???

:facepalm:

I've already said that trying to use a test light to test for current draw will be pointless, there will always be some draw, due to items that have memory, such as clocks, radios, ECMS, etc.

just run through fuses with helper and a meter and found draw (1.1 amps) in the CTSY fuse, this controls horn/ctsy lite/Power locks(not in use)Remote liftgate release(not a hatchback)check oil light(never has came on)and the one I'm not sure about is Audible warning system--would this be some option that came with STOCK alarm?,cuz this car didnt have stock alarm(that I KNOW of,would VIN tell me if it came with one?) I guess tommorow I will start by unhooking wires from the TOP of the fuseblock to find which of these is the thief.
