With the key off and removed, discommect the battery negative cable and put a test light from the cable to the battery terminal. With all the doors closed, trunk closed and glove compartment closed, the the test light will light breifly, and then dim and pulsate for a minute, and then go out. If the light stays on, you have a draw. With the door jam switch held closed, pull fuses one at a time untill the test light goes out. If none of the fuses make the light go out, disconnect the alternator wiring. If the light is still on, disconnect the fuseable links one at a time. When you find what circuit is causing the draw, then get a wiring diagram and chase down the cause.
