Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
My son hooked battery up backwards and shorted the fusible link to starter, I repaired fusible link but now fuse 12 seems to be shorted to grd. I do not see any melted wires on the circuits supposedly involved add to that, the schematic I have does not give a good look at ignition switch.
Any help would be appreciated, besides telling my son to let dad do it next time.
ps, I pulled all the fuses and relays in pdc, short is gone when fuse 1 in pdc is pulled 30amp ignition start fuse

The seized radiator fan has probably caused the current overload that blew the fuse and subsequently damaged the fan supply relay.
Repair or replace the seized fan if possible.
If not able to replace/repair immediatley, temporarily leave the fan disconnected, but be aware it may cause engine to overheat when vehicle in operation and will definitly need to be fixed before the vehicle is fully serviceable.
Replace the fuse and fan supply relay if faulty and repair/replace any burnt wiring.
I would not recommend re-arranging the wiring or fuses in any way - as that may cause further damage - especially if you don't know exactly what you are doing.

the fuel pump comes on when you turn the key on the starter comes on when you turn all the way to start so i would think the short is in the fuel pump if it blows by just turning the key on

Put the fuses back in,and unplug the fuel pump from the tank,and turn the key on,if it does not blow the fuse,then the pump is the problem.Rate this if it is helpful,thank you.
