In case anybody still wants the answer and or comes across this thread looking for answers, I can confirm that this draw is caused by a faulty horn switch.
Headlights require a negative trigger thru a 1. The fire then continues until the van is fully engulfed in flames. Battery draw still on that cluster three connector. The failure mileage was 214,552. Reinstall in reverse order - but keep in mind all the electrical plugs, ground wires, and the many, many plastic panel screws. As far as the horn, I doubt that the two are related since they are on different circuits.
This is a project, once we started, that I had second thoughts about maybe having used the deale … r. I'm guessing we easily had 50-60 small 7 mm head screws used to hold plastic panels in place! I found a used truck just like mine for sale at a dealer, and they let me check the draw on that trucks fuse 51, and it was 1 amp too, so I think it is normal.
