Park/tail fuse

Hi,

Any idea how to check why the park/tail fuse gets fried? I had an issue that the dash dimmer did a short, but now it gets fried irregardless of the dimmer.

Checking the wiring is a PITA!

There is a short somewhere you just gotta chase it down.

If the dimmer shorted out it may have fried a wire in the harness.....

get a wiring diagram and isolate sections of the harness and check for continuity to the ground. Unplug connectors to isolate wiring sections.

Got the bastard! It was the pack of cables running from the light switch. It was rubbing on the steering wheel mount. Thanks for your help.
