CAR HAS ELECTRICAL DRAW

1986 BMW 325 • 180,000 miles

Car has about a 5 amp electric draw and battery going dead at night. Pulled all lights like door, glove box, trunk, hood, etc; pulled all the fuses in the fuse box, all the relays, pulled the radio out, unplugged the computer, disconnected the alt. The only thing remaining that could be causing the draw that I can think of is the starter. But I have never heard of a starter causing a problem like this before, nor can I guess where the 5 amps is going? Any ideas?

Do you have an electrical diagram of power distribution?
