[DML] electrical problems solution

IF you remember I posted two electrical problems about two weeks ago.

The first problem was the #1 fuse blew a few seconds after the car started 
and the second one was the #7 fuse had overheated and melted the fuse box.

The first problem was some broken insulation in the wire harness and it 
shorted againt the metal of the car.  Took about 3 minutes to find and it is fine 

The second one was a bit harder to conrfirm since the car has not run yet but 
the fuse box was disassembeled and I took out the wires.  The ends clearly 
were corroded and the fuse did nto fit tight 
Its in a new fuse box and I suspect that problem is also solved.

Found one other problem though in the first car.

There was a power drain from the battery even with the car off.  It turned 
out to be the door lock system and it was obvious.

I locked and unlocked the car a few times and it released whatever was stuck 
and it works fine now with no current drain.

Thats the follow up 
Sorry it was nothing earthshattering but usually the electrical problems are 
something simple
