Ricky, what's the condition of the antenna on the car? Does it work? Try checking the draw with the antenna switch in all three positions (off, on and middle) and see if the draw changes.

Alex,

Yes, the antenna works when the ignition switch is in the acc position when switched for either the min or max antenna. Good Idea though! I didn't think about checking this switch for voltage and will test tonight and let you know.

I was also thinking that some other component could be powered from this circuit that was not listed on the fuse information sheet. I don't have a wiring diagram for this car. I think moon mentioned something about this earlier. Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated?

It could be another component. The clock is part of the circuit and it's the first target when you're looking for a constant power source from the battery. See if the wire is spliced anywhere.

Any update on the antenna draw?
