Short in Turn Signal Short

Please help. The fuse that controls the turn signal keeps blowing. I have

1) pulled both flashers
2) disconnected the wiring harness for the turn signals
3) the ignition tap that is part of the turn signal circuit on the fuse box has nothing on it.

Any ideas on where the short might be or how to chase it down?

B/T/w, the tail lamps/brake lights have nothing to do with this. When I got the car they were not hooked up. I tapped into another circuit to hook them up and they work fine.

Thanks

I would start with that. You may have crossed wires to the rear which could be the cause. Unhook what you did in the rear, then put fuses,flashers etc back in and see if it blows the fuse. If so, you may have grounded the wrong side of the rear wires that you hooked up.

Thanks Kev, I am stil baffled. I unhooked what i did in the rear and just for good measure i also disconnected the brake like switch between the steering column and the pedal.

Fuse goes as soon as i turn key to start position

Re: Short in Turn Signal Short

Ok,
Only the Instruments /directional fuse blows when you turn to start? It sure sounds like the starter solenoid (purple) wire from the ignition is or has been tapped into for the instruments/directional wiring. You need to disconnect that wire off the solenoid and then try the key and see if the fuse blows. This is going to be a trial and error troubleshooting thing so hang in there......
