A electrical dead shot is when an electrical circuit has zero resistance; this happens when an electrical feed comes into contact with metal objects such as a metal outbox, the ground, or a neutral wire. A common sign of a dead shot is a tripped breaker.

Why my 80 amp fuse blows?

take the alternator in for a bench test as the dead short is in that unit
could be blown diode block, shorted windings , shorted brush insulators , shorted insulator around the bolt that the wire is attached to
once the alternator problem is fixed the rest of the symptoms should fix them selves

Automatic transmission nissan altima 1999

My battery had a dead short in it which caused my transmission not to shift properly. The give away was that I checked to see if the altnator was putting out and it was not but the engine light was not telling me it was bad. I put a new battery in it and then the altnator stared putting voltage back in the battery. I had a dead short in the battery. The transmission worked fine after I changed the battery. Another problem was the fan for the air conditner and the windows would not work except when the battery charge was conected. This was my first time to see what a dead short in a battery would do. Hope this helps others with this problem.

I put a brand new battery in the truck and it was

Well its either the battery is also nogood or you have a dead short in the wiring.
TAKE the feed off the battery and charge it up to max gharge 12volts, then just touch the lead on to the lug and if it has a small spark then you have a short,
But make sure everything is turned off before you do it if there is no spark at all try putting a test light between battery and cable lug,if it lights you still have a dead short...Let me know how you go Ron
