Angry 2016 Fusion - battery being drained

Sonething is causing the battery in my 2016 Fusion. I read somewhere about issues with the ACM and the CD player continually ejecting causing the drain but that's not it. Took it to the local dealership and they did nothing but check the battery and inform me it was low. We were going to jump it but something is ticking under the hood indicating something is happening even though the car is off. I have another appointment in a week with the dealership. Any one else have this issue or any ideas as I want to go into the dealerhship fully prepared. Thank you!

Hi Lisa,
There are quite a bit of electronics in today's vehicles and to pinpoint the exact cause of a battery drain usually takes some time and special testing. Did you get a report of what the dealership did/checked ? There should be more info on what if anything they might have found.
The clicking you hear can be a possible tip off of where or what is happening . It is not usually possible to diagnose problems like this from a distance and most of the time it requires some special equipment and info to determine the exact cause.
Sometimes removing the fuses one at a time will help point in a direction if the clicking stops when that particular fuse is removed that is supplying power to that particular circuit. There are other more specialized tools and methods to determine the cause. Have any add on items been installed on the vehicle other than what it came with from the factory? Sometimes these things can create problems.
