BATTERY DRAIN

2002 Buick Rendezvous

Electrical problem
2002 Buick Rendezvous 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

i am having an issue with the battery dying overnight, completely.I opened the doors and latched the doors. With the negative cable disconnected I installed my meter and found a 1.9 amp draw, wow. It should be at or below.050 right? I waited for an hour before pulling fuses, in case the system had to go " to sleep". After pulling fuses inside and under the hood I found that the interior fuse #37 drops the reading to 0.160. Also when I disconnected the radio with the fuse in it I had the same voltage drop change.I don't have an owners manual for this car so I dont know what fuse 37 powers. Is there a common problem with the body control module on these? Or where else should I be looking? Thanks in advance!

Fuse no. 37 powers the radio sound like your short is coming from the radio circuit
