Hi. I'm working on a friends car (97 escort, 4 door, SOHC) and could use some help. The battery is constantly going dead if it sits for a few hours. I hooked my amp meter up to the battery and found its drawing 3.5 amps sitting with the ignition off. Removing the fuel injector fuse drops the draw to a few milliamps. My guess is there's a small short somewhere in that circuit.

What I could really use is a factory wiring diagram for this car. I think I've got it narrowed down to the white/green wire that runs from the fuse block to the CCRM, but it looks like that wire runs across the firewall, down to the engine and back across to the CCRM. If the autozone diagram is correct, the white/green wire runs from the fuse block to the CCRM and nothing else. Is that right? The amp draw is still there with the CCRM disconnected, so its gotta be that single wire, not something after it. This is really driving me nuts! The only solution I had for her was pull the fuse when you park your car for over an hour.

Thanks in advance for any help

What is the deal with the FI circuit?
sounds like there is a relay that is stuck electricaly closed.
Sometimes a relay gets stuck or is stuck open or closed.
Find out which relay is being energized.
It may be controled in the wiring before it.
Good luck.

I'm still trying to find out if that circuit powers anything else before it gets to the CCRM. Now her wipers and blower motor dont work. This is starting to sound like a chaffed wire issue....which is gonna suck.
