Which fuse controls all of the gauges? Is it under the hood or down by the drivers feet? And is it labeled something odd like ACC or something?

I can't find one that looks burnt. I'm guessing it's got to be in the wiring. Does anyone have a wire diagram?

a fuse does not have to "look burnt" to be bad.

The Fuse for the accesory lights will be in the Cabin near the brake. I will take a look at my manuals when get home from work.

Either a short or the wrong size fuse.

No it wouldn't cause a short, it is a short, all fuses are.

What it would do is not pop early enough and possibly damage something.

What you are looking for is somewhere a wire has lost it's insulation and shorted to ground. Or somewhere water is in a connector which will short the pins together.
