I've been troubleshooting a starting problem on my truck and noticed the batteries were lower than I would expect (11.5v). So I started looking for something that was draining them since the battery were new in Oct. 2015. What I found was fuse #19 was drawing 3 amps, at least by my meter. Fuse #19 is for the security module and 4x4 module. Does anyone know where these modules are located?

Thanks,

I thought I heard that the 4x4 module was up infront of the glovebox - I know there is something up there, but never really looked at it too hard.

Not sure about the security.

But the GEM might be suspect. If you have had rain, then that is sometimes where the water goes and causes some weird issues. Do you have anything else wired into your true aftermarket?

What is a GEM? I did park it overnight on Sunday but I started it Monday morning without issue to put it back in the carport. After sitting in the carport over night...the next day is when I had the no start issue. No I don't have anything wired into that circuit.

I found the 4x4 module behind the glove box you were taking about but it is dry as a bone and looks fine. If I can not isolate the high current on fuse #19 I'll pull the plugs to it anyway and see what happens.
