I have a parasitic battery drain problem which lowers when fuse 31 is removed on the inside fuse panel. This controls the main light switch and the lighting control module how do I diagnose from here?

The draw is 5.8 amps it lowers to 2 amps when fuse 31 is removed under the dash. When I removed fuse 19 in the fuse panel under the hood the draw went down to.5 amps. This fuse feeds subwoofer, i/p fuse panel, fuse 23. I assumed this draw was due to the stereo coming on every time the battery is disconnected and reconnected or am I wrong.I tried unplugging the light switch and that blew the fuse in my multimeter.I then tried hooking up the battery and the lights came on with no switch plugged in is this normal?
