1997 outback sport

Default Maryland newb with parasitic draw

Hello nasioc,
I am the new owner of a 1997 OBS that was converted to right hand drive(usdm firewall) and swapped with a hybrid 2.5/2.0 turbo....As of yesterday i was happier than a gazelle with night vision goggles but now i have a starting issue. Ive been driving the car with no issue for 2-3 days now everything was fine, but then it decided to leave me stranded. I get in the car dome light comes on door ajar but as soon as i turn the key i get one click and everything is dead. I can jump start the vehicle and drive it around fine but once i leave it overnight it will do the same thing over again. Battery is new alternator is producing normal voltage. I guess what im trying to say is are there any common issues with these cars that draw power, say the power locks pulling voltage or a sticking relay. While i am a mechanic by trade im just seeing if there are some things i should go for right away. Once i get home im going to check my ground wires possibly pull a few fuses and put my multimeter to use, any leads would be nice though. Thanks in advanced
