Battery seems to be draining when left idle for several hours (sometimes). Put an ammeter in series with battery then started pulling fusing to see which circuit is pulling most current. By the markings on the fuse box, the circuit on fuse 1 and fuse 3 are draining the battery. Fuse 3 more than 1. I can't find any diagrams to show what circuit is controlled by fuses 1 and 3. So looking for more direction to find the short or drain on the battery.

Here's the layout of the central junction box(inside) the car.
