I once had a strange battery drain also.  I used the light trick (mentioned 
in an earlier email) and pulled each wire off until I found it.  Turns out it 
was a bad mast jacket bearing.  I think that's what it's called.  It is the 
bearing at the top of the steering column that has the brass ring slider for 
the horn button in the steering wheel.  I guess there was a small current 
leakage through the side of the housing.

In any case, use a light and disconnect until you narrow it down.
