I recommend measuring the key off current draw with all the doors shut and the car in "sleep" mode. The general module may be suspect if the car will not go to sleep. Sleep is achieved with the car off and all the lids shut, wait 16 minutes and see if the shifter indicator light goes out and stays out. If not then it may well be the general module.
