For the money you are going to have in it and the time lost drive it, you could have told them to rip out the wire harness and replace it, problem solved.

Chaseing a short in wireing is not easy at all, you will spend more time looking for the short than it's worth, and if and when you do find it, it will lead you off on another short that the firts one started, and so on, and so on.

Yeah I had a dodge caliber for the last 2 weeks, I got admit it was nice having a/c, 25+ mpg, and awesome stereo, but I wanted to buy a wig so no one would see me driving it. (No offense to the ppl that own calibers)
