Default parasitic draw

my son has a 1998 malibu ls w a 3.1 engine. the battery is new but keeps going dead overnight. we suspect a parasitic draw and he put a test light between the neg cable and the negative anode of the battery and removed fuses 1 by 1 until the light dimmed. when removing fuse # 35, the light dimmed. what does fuse 35 protect and what is on the circuit? i can't find any info on this and i am trying to fix this from 2000 miles away and relaying the instructions to him.
thanks for any help anyone can provide.

i used to have alldata, but my former employer changed the password

This 1999 manual indicates fuse #35 is related to the anti lock brakes.
