Had the same problem with my Windstar. disconnect battery ground and use a test meter. hook one side to battery terminal and other lead to battery cable. should read .60 millie amps if not start pulling fuses until u find the right one. might have to tape sensor for doom light. mine was reading 1.7 millie amps. parasitic draw is what it is called
