Obviously a drain on the battery when the car is off, but lucky for you it's giving you a big clue where the problem is (window regulator or switch). I suspect if you fix that your battery drain will go away.

another problem has shown its face when i pulled the breaker out under the hood it lost the wipers door power and the airbag light came on after replugging the breaker the airbag light stays on but the window master switch is still dead any clues had a small frontend impact 3 years ago and did not blow airbags could this be part of problem with drainage a half activated airbag system i am just reaching hoping to find somebody that has walked this mile before thanks for any help


The module that controls airbag deployment also controls the seat belt restraints is located in the canter of the passenger compartment, usually between the front seats and under the center console (if you have one). It may be located under the carpet/mat as well. I can only suggest you visually inspect all the underhood/front end wire connecters and wiring, to look for damaged or fraying, Use a digital volt meter to check for voltage at window switch, which will mean removing the interior door panel. If you have voltage there check for it at the regulator.
