2007 Ford Taurus battery drain from #37 fuse circuit

I have a 2007 Ford Taurus in excellent condition. but it has one little flaw. Battery drain from fuse circuit #37.
Changed headlamp switch but still having same issue. Tired of being stranded. New Starter, Alternator and, Battery have been installed.

So kinda a simple start for you.. Find out what all is driven by that fuse. You mentioned headlights, so if you unplug the harness to the headlight switch, do you get the same draw? Are there other items on the same circuit you can do this with? The idea is to unplug each piece one at a time, to try to narrow down where the short might be.

Also be sure to check all the ground straps and wires. Sometimes without a correct ground, a circuit can not turn off because lack of draw or current.

Most of us don't have the fuse circuit paths memorized by year. What are all the circuits being fed by fuse 37?

It's SHO time!
