Got a 15 AMP fuse for the instrument panel that works the gauges, tachometer keeps blowing. Trying to find out the source of the short. Any ideas? 88 Toy Pickup 22RE

What was happening the first time it blew? were you out wheeling? did you install some thing new? Have you looked at the wiring diagram to see what areas are feed by this fuse?

It seems to blow when you first start the truck or cut if off. So, I'm thinking it must be a power surge.

sounds like the acc wire in the switch is shorted to somthing.
