I am sorry it took so long to get back to you. I got home from work and the wife took me out to dinner for my Birthday.
So I looked up fuse 71 and that is for the Tail Lights
. That won't keep the car from starting.
I am sure you have allot on your mind, and I totally understand. Enjoy your day tomorrow and don't think about the car. If you like we can talk more about it Sunday. If not, then Monday around noon time!
I was trying to think of a way to describe what a short is to you, and I thought of this.
Picture on of those big water tanks. Then picture hundreds of pipes going all sorts of directions. Now pour water down the pipes.... Water is going to want to take the fastest path to the ground. Now picture one pipe has a clog and now out of the 100's of pipes, you have to find it. So you need to do somethings to isolate where it could be.
The same thing with electrical.
So I hope you understand what I explained. I will do my best to help you with your issue, just need to know things as they get checked to help determine direction.
So enjoy your day tomorrow and once again Congratulations!!
