Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you out. Tell me does the fuse blow immediately or does it take a while?
Ok thanks. I'll have to pull up the wiring diagram when I get home later today and see what circuit(s) that fuse powers. Is that ok?
Ok, I am home and have researched the diagram. Fuse 20 supplies voltage to the ignition switch. Then from the switch it goes to the instrument cluster, power door locks, overhead console, automatic day/night mirror, ac, and airbag fuses. I would look under the dash at the wiring harness coming from the big bulkhead connector and up the steering column to the ignition switch. Look around the park brake pedal. I remember seeing issues there where the park brake pedal mechanism can rub against the harness and short it out. Take a look and let me know if you find anything.
Ok, sounds good. Let me know what you find when you get a chance.
Hmmm, inspect the wiring running up the steering column and up by the ignition switch.
yes. It may be subtle so look closely. If you cannot find it, then you may want to spend some money on a diagnosis from an auto electrical shop or the dealer. They have special short finder meters/tools to help locate the source of the short.
