Trace your wires and make sure you didn't melt any wires, no wires are grounding out where they shouldn't be, etc. Wiring, wiring, wiring. It's a bitch.

yes but at the same time none of them involved hooking the the power and ground to battery wrong by accident most are i was wiring a system or radio things ive taken the fuse out unplugged the acc on the fuse but still can find my drain is it possible it could be alternator or starter or am i just missing something acc wise inside?

Yes, others have done it. I've seen posts but don't recall any resolutions to the problems that came up. Those posts may be hard to find, but its worth a try to find them.

pull the fuses one at a time until you find the circuit with the drain
