[urq] 0.15A constant drain on the battery

In this fusebox setup, all the unswitched lights are on the same circuit,
the same one for the clock and radio and antenna. When I pull that fuse,
still 0.15A.

What I am thinking of is something less obvious : a relay, or the heating
element for the warm-up regulator or the thermo-time switch maybe. What is
the amperage draw (or wattage) of an ordinary relay ? Same question about
the heating elements ?
Are they fused, usually ? Same circuit as ignition maybe ?

Trunk light?

Under hood light?
