ELECTRICAL SHORT

2006 Pontiac Torrent

Electrical problem
2006 Pontiac Torrent 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a 2006 Torrent and I have been having a battery drain issue for about a month now. The car runs fine all day unless it sits for an extended period of time which is about 6+ hours, then it needs a jump. It also has to be jumped off every morning. I had everything tested that I could think of including the altenator, battery, starter. I even took it to a shop about a week ago, but they could not find where the short was. We did get it narrowed down to which fuse the short was coming from by hooking up a light and pulling each fuse one at a time. The light continued to stay on until we pulled the fuse labeled 40A Battery Feed, then it went off, but every other fuse did nothing, the light just stayed on. That's as far as we have gotten with it. It has everyone confused. Is there anyone on here that can please help me?
