Disconnect the negative battery lead from the battery. Take a ammeter (I use a multi meter) and hook it up between the negative battery cable clamp and the negative battery post. If you see mre than about 200ma, start removing and replacing fuses (one at a time) until the current draw drops and you now have located the offending system. I would continue the drill using all fuses to be sure there is not more than one system over drawing current.
