    Battery Drains Overnight - Gear shifter light remains on

    Help,

    The battery on my BMW 116 drains overnight. I noticed the light on the gear shifter selector remains on when the car is in park and fully shutdown. It never comes off which was not so before.

    I would appreciate any help to determine and correct this issue. The battery and alternator charge rate were checked and they are good.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    i did the test for the Parasitic drain as indicated above. I was able to determine that the circuit controlled by fuse 65 is what is causing the drain.
    How can one get the circuit diagram controlled by a fuse?

    Thanks
    Robin
