I bought the car like this, previous owner may well be on this site. I have checked and there is a 2.5 amp draw, after the car shuts down. varies slightly with different modules and their switches cycling. but never less then 2 amps. During troubleshooting with a snap on scanner, I noticed the "state" of the wipers are always "wipe", under the wiper park switch state data. The wipers work fine. Does this data not apply to the S model, no turbo 2013. Any ideas on the parasitic drain? This was bought by me broken, in this condition, and I paid accordingly, so not
complaining, just want to figure it out.

Also, when the connector circled in white, in picture below, is removed the current draw drops all the way to 0 (less than 50ma)

I have done both fuse panels. I do not know what that connector goes to.

Fwiw, this car was in a fender bender, and the airbag light is on. Faults for circuit open in driver's seat. I have not researched that yet.

Also, you do know that some circuits are designed to stay on for a period of time after the car has been locked?
It's dead by morning. I stayed in the car and set the locks and alarm. The amp draw never went down. Over 30 minutes. I have seen YT videos of the cluster going crazy on these, mine is not.

Apparently the S models only have the 2 fuse panels with the small fuses. On my car the one in the back does not exist. No access to a infrared camera of any kind, but I am aware of the procedure. I'll keep fighting it for now. Thx
