I all of a sudden have a problem on my '02 Hyundai Elantra. My son has no
instrument panel lights.
He had put in a different radio, and indeed, the radio works fine.
I diagnosed the problem as a blown fuse. I found and replaced the faulty
fuse, tried the lights, and instantly the fuse blew again.
That tells me it's a short. I know that often a short is nothing more
complicated than finding a bare wire somewhere that is touching where it
shouldn't, and putting some black electrical tape around it.
Here is my question. Since the fuse blows instantly, and hence I have no
current, how does one find such a short?
I have been told that good mechanics sometimes work hours trying to find the
problem, and then I have seen some of these found and fixed in five minutes.
I guess it is here where I show my limited ability to work on cars. Any
ideas for me.
Thanx in advance!
