What Michael said. I assume, if you have a short, you are blowing fuses?? Troubleshooting a circuit without a diagram is pretty tough, but look at pinch points in the harness, under carpets, thru clamps, etc. In modern cars, not all shorts are wiring problems anymore, it could be on an electronic circuit board.
