Hi, my name isXXXXX 5 powers the alarm siren. You need to disconnect the alarm siren and see if the fuse still blows. The fuse also powers the trunk lamp but more than likely the problem is the alarm siren.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Please note that you must rate my service in order for me to receive credit for my help.

Hi, thanks. How do I disconnect the alarm system, thanks.

Expert:  Marty replied 3 years ago.
Hi, the siren is located behind the front bumper on the left side. You will need to remove the trim panel between the bumper and the front wheel liner to access and disconnect the siren.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Please remember to rate my service!

Hi, can you post your vin number for me so I can look up a wiring diagram on your car?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi Marty, the vin number is WDB2083472F087932. Thanks.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi, I very just replaced the fuse and everything seems fine now. It could have been just a duff fuse I put in earlier today. I'll just keep an eye out for any more battery drainage. Thanks for your help.

Excellent! I'm glad you got it going.
