92 Taurus #8 fuse shorted,, help

I have a 92 Ford Taurus 3.8. Something is pulling the battery down and making the car run bad. At the battery the Pos\Neg terminal had continuity. After disconnecting a few fuses. I found that the #8 fuse was the one.
It fuses the radio, clock, power mirrors, dome light and cigarette lighter.
It's not blowing a fuse, but pulling the battery down and running bad. After #8 fuse was removed it holds a charge and runs great.
My question is, What could be shorted?

Does the stereo have a factory amp installed? Those were known to draw power, but I am not sure if they had amps in 1992 models.
