    how do you know the ems relay is draining the battery? You may just have a bad battery, even if it's relatively new.

    Test your battery by leaving the lights on for 10 minutes, should still be bright, not valid if you have leds for lights.

    It won’t start, gauges won’t sweep when key turned on.

    What year Rocket? Bad ignition switch? Early Rockets had switches that corroded and shorted.
