Ride: BF MKII Ghia

I finally got sick of charging my battery every weekend and got the multimeter out, anyway so happens its drawing 0.57 of an amp.

anyway, i pulled fuses in the car nothing changed. i then pulled fuses under the bonnet and found one (pictured)

the book says BATT1 ??? where does this go? well what runs of this? after pulling that fuse it drops down to 0.01 of an amp.

i hadnt installed or taken out anything in the car, and it started a few months after the warranty ran out :(

After pulling all the fuses, then putting them back it now reads 0.03
Maybe that reset something

Reading this this morning I was going to say a lamp was still on, I was thinking maybe the boot light.
I was holding off replying as I was going to do a current measurement on mine for you when I get home tonight.
