Killer short from hell.....

.....any help would be greatly appreciated!

1988 Camaro, 305, VIN E, Throttle Body Injection...

The "Guages" circuit keeps shorting out. Been to two electrical shops and so far, no resolution. It's not the overdrive circuit. It's outside the firewall somewhere, probably behind the engine and pinned between that and the exterior firewall...I'm pulling my frigin hair out here...

Please help?

Thanks....

You will need a wiring diagram for the car and an owners manual may list other components on that fuse.When you know everthing on that fuse you will need to isolate each branch to determine which component area is causing the failure.If you can access a component locater for your car it would be a huge bonus because it would tell you where certain circuits and splices/connections are in the wiring diagram.Is this a hard failure or intermittant?Are the electrical shops you were at starter/generator shops or body/chassis wiring electrical shops?
