Hi all! Hope I am posting in the right place. We just bought this 2012 Fusion SEL used with 150k for our 16 year old. Get it home, next day, dead battery. Jump it off, drive around, park it next day, dead. Charge it up, battery has 13v do parasitic draw testing. Have .48amp draw. Fuse 5 on the interior seems to be the culprit, also the fuse for the instrument cluster battery powered is drawing some. Any ideas? I took the center cup holder portion out and disconnected all the visible wiring harnesses in there, no change. Not sure what else is on that circuit that I can check? Also it seems the exterior keypad does not light up which is also on fuse 5, I believe.

Hi Tarab. Unfortunately, traffic here on the Ford Fusion Club has dropped dramatically over the last few years, as you can see by the scarcity of recent posts. It is shame too, because we had a great group of members.

You may have better luck getting assistance if you post over on the Ford Fusion Forum, located here: Ford Fusion Forum

And just a wild Internet guess, which will likely not be correct: If the exterior door keypad is not illuminating, perhaps the keypad wiring is the source of the draw. Again, just a blind Internet guess.

Let us know how you make out and good luck.
