I noticed my battery has been getting killed the last few weeks. Last week I finally checked, and I kept seeing vanced (which I do not use often, nor do I use its version of youtube) with ridiculous usage of 40% with 1 min used. I finally uninstalled both it and its version of youtube. Nothing changed, the battery is still dying, and it's still showing up. Help, please!

I loaded it from the site. I got the link here a year and a half ago. Not sure why its an issue lately.
Punch on the running services entry and see what info it has. Try killing it there.
Go into apps and search for it.

Clear system cache if you have that option.
It may be a false report; another app may be the culprit. You need to track the cause down or do a factory reset.

Scan with Malwarebytes.
Run Autostarts and see what it finds.
