Short Circuit "Ign 2" fuse

Hello everyone,
I bought a used 2004 Dakota about a year ago, and ever since I got it I noticed that it drained the battery while being idle for 2-3 days. I hooked up a multimiter to the battery and noticed that when "ing 2" fuse was removed the current dropped from .22 amps to .01 amps. From what I've read on the internet, it should not be sucking up more than .05 amps while being idle. So I believe that circuit is the one with the problem. My questions are: what is the "ign 2" fuse used for? what's that circuit for? how can I test that circuit to pin point the problem? One more thing I noticed on the truck since I bought it (and I don't know if it is related) is that the front passenger side window does not work all the time. It does not matter whether I use the switch on the passenger's side or the driver's side.
