I have a Jaguar s type. The battery has a continuos draw that drains the battery. It pulls 1.35amps. I tried pulling fuses, when I pulled the primary Junction box fuse, which is a 40amp, located in the trunk the high draw went away. I pulled the fuses in the engine compartment and all the fuses in the trunk. The only one that I found to stop the draw was the 40 amp.
I do not know where to go from here. I took it to a jaguar dealer they charged me 1,000 dollars and could not find the problem.
Please help

Is it the main fuse between alternator and power distribution center? Try removing the (+) battery cable on the back of the alternator, bad diodes can also cause the alt to draw current.

The fuse was in the trunk between the battery and starter. Once I pulled the fuse the interior lights trunk light etc went out. I could not start the car until I replaced the fuse.
Where is the alternator located on the jaguar
