This problem started a couple of years ago. Lots of time and money invested in diagnosing and trying to fix this problem. Have had to use a battery float charging device or battery disconnect switch to keep the battery from going flat. Have checked by disconnecting and isolating the engine systems and chassis/ancillaries systems and continue to have between a 3.6 and 4.5 amp parasitic draw. I hope this ABS module is the solution as I cannot afford new truck or to keep dumping money into this one. Been a great truck otherwise!
