Unknown voltage drain

So I replaced the VR in this 1997 W210 E320 and now there is a voltage drain in the system.
The old VR was high with 16V output.
Battery dies overnight so I checked to see if there was a drain......and there was!
Checking the fuses in the engine compartment I have a drain on 4,5,17 and 20.
Pretty much all of them are live in the fuse bank next to the battery.
Any ideas....could the high output have blown relay of something?
What fuses feeds the rear fuse bank?
Does anyone have a wiring diagram of this car?

I did not check what is behind the numbers, but drain on several circuits likely indicate the car is not going to sleep.
Bad door switch?
