Question about Cars & Trucks
2002 Saurn L300. No power on interior lights...dome...map....but power everywhere else like locks..windows. As soon as key is turned to accessories, the fuse blows. I did continuity check on both sides of fuse box (engine compartment) terminals where fuse is inserted and one side is hot and the other side seems to be grounded, which of course is probably why the fuse is blowing, but not sure where to go from here. Would greatly appreciate any suggestions. I don't think the BCM itself is bad, because only interior light power is out.

Which # fuse blows ? Find the connector at the BCM That this power wire is in an disconnect the connector ! With ohm meter see if it still has continuity to ground . If so it's not the BCM , that wire is shorted to ground . But if it doesn't show continuity with ground , it's shorted inside BCM .

Sounds like you may have a pinched wiring in the circuit where the fuse supplies power to. Might want to remove all the components that this circuit operates and one by one connect them. Once the fuse pops, you have isolated the circuit and all you need to do is follow the specific wiring to that bad circuit and find the problem.

The liftgate lamps
You can't turn them on manually ?
This could be a BCM problem , this best left to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .
