Another Battery Drain Thread 1998 5.9

I’m sort of at a loss. My battery is constantly dead and I obviously have a draw. That being said. From what I’ve read it’s generally a BCM. But it seems that when it’s the BCM people’s dashes go crazy and mine doesn’t. After a couple minutes of allowing the alternator to build some energy I’m able to take my foot off of the pedal and it idles.

Another issue I’m having which is besides the point is that the Jeep is from Canada. The temp gauge in the cluster was in Celsius and I swapped in a different gauge that is in Fahrenheit. As soon as I turn the key the temp automatically jumps up to 210, any thoughts or solutions to these issues?
Appreciate it.

Search YouTube for battery drain. There's tons of videos showing how to find a parasitic draw.

For the temp gauge, if you can get past the numbers, the needle should still sit right around the middle of the gauge. 100 celcius = 212 farenheit. Mine is in celcius too, hasn't bothered me personally.

When I do battery drains my first suspect is anything NOT original or jeep - audio, alarm, adds ons, trailer etc ,

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.
When I see the quality of aftermarket I think OEM.

Yah I came to that conclusion this morning, I realized I could care less about the numbers. And yah I got a few fuses drawing the battery and I yanked them (VIC & Radio) fuses but the battery is still dead.
