Exclamation Parasitic Battery Drain

Hello! I am looking for some help figuring out the parasitic battery drain I have been struggling with the last couple months in my 2008 Outlander XLS. I have done a few tests and have figured out that when the vehicle is off, it is drawing approximately 460mA. The battery drains in about 10 hours at this rate. When I pull out the IOD fuse in the main fuse box, the amperage drops to 30mA... from the fuse box in the drivers side, there are two different wiring harnesses that when removed, drop the amperage to 30mA. One of them is in the centre with 2 wires coming out. Green with 2 slashes, and White with 1 silver slash. The other wiring harness when removed is a large one in the top right of the compartment... Is there anyone out there with some direction as to wiring diagrams, or any other help? Thanks!

Default Outlander 09 battery drain

I have had same issue with outlander 09 elegance. Had a guy have a quick look and isolated to be related to the cabin. But couldn't tell me more than that without being charged more money . Looking online some have suggested Bluetooth module. But that looks like a pain to get to. Although my Bluetooth has also stopped working. Maybe related not sure. Either way still not got to the bottom of this

Yeah, I'd pay to have someone look at it, but I have been without a job for the last 6 months. I guess I just need to spend more time on it and make friends with the service guys at the local Mitsubishi dealership...
