Hard short on parking lamp circuit
Hello! I am a long time lurker on this forum, and without asking you guys saved me a lot of trouble many times. I am hoping you can point me in the right direction on a short I am experiencing.
So I successfully rewired my 1968 camaro six months ago. For the first time in 17 years EVERYTHING WORKED! Pretty cool, for a while anyway. I recently purchased speakers, an amplifier and a head unit to install, and here is where the problems began.
I noticed while installing the head unit that I did not properly secure the wires behind the instrument cluster and from the fuse block, and along the drivers kick panel. Here is where the trouble began. As I moved the wires, I accidentally arced the green/red wire on the headlamp switch. This smoked the switch, and now I have the following problems:
-parking lamp fuse keeps blowing
-no instrument lights of any kind- none on the cluster, console, or dome lamp (Floor mounted courtesy lights still work for some reason)
-No parking lamps or turn signals
-When the hazards are activated, passenger front and driver rear are the only ones that work
So far, I physically traced the entire parking lamp circuit and verified nothing is chafed or melted. I also removed all the bulbs on the parking circuit and verified the sockets look good. I keep going over the wiring diagram and I am at a loss. I cant see what could be causing so many issues.
Any input or troubleshooting tips you guys can offer would be great.
