Blown ignition fuse
Background... All new Painless wiring throughout the car. Push button start system. I've been having issues with the car running like crap. Anyway I went to start the car and she was running even worse than before. I shut her down and walked away before I threw something at her! Here's my problem. When I shut it down, I accidentally left the ignition switch on. I was playing with the kid for a while and I walked back into the garage. Electrical fire smell! I freaked out started running around the car looking for smoke. There was none. I disconnected the trickle charger and noticed the ignition was still on. Turned it off. I made sure there was nothing burning and put the charger back on. The next day I went back out there to try and start her back up. Nothing. Took the test meter to the 12v wire on the hei dizzy and it was 0. Looked at the fuse block and couldn't find an ign. Fuse but found a coil fuse. It was blown. Replaced the fuse and went to start it again and it "popped" as soon as I cranked it over. Where to start? The 12v dizzy wire is where I'm thinking. There's got to be a fried wire some where. That burning smell was too strong.
