My truck is pulling ~.67 amp draw from my battery. I think i have a short somewhere in my dash. I already tried pulling all the fuses... no luck there. I noticed when I jiggle the truck, sometimes the draw will stop, then I'll jiggle again, and it'll start drawing again. I have noticed a very faint hum coming from the dash somewhere. Any other way to isolate where this draw is coming from? Also, when i'm under the dash, and i hear it humming, and i slowly press in the brake pedal, the hum will suddenly stop when the brake lights turn on. I'm completely stumped.

    In response to stapelman

as soon as i posted this topic, i had an idea to start disconnecting wires from box under the blue arrow. when i disconnected the middle one, the amp went down to .01. so i think this is the problem wire. I have no idea what it is or where it goes to. I do know that when i turned the key on without it connected, the black box with the x over it started buzzing.
