The o2 sensor will not cause a short. it works or don't work, unplug it and it will still have a short, some thing is still wrong and I think they don't know how to fix it.

2001 dodge driver door switches keep shorting out and the panel drops.what should i do.any recalls on vehical

She shorting issue is either in your panel itself or in the door jam where the wires run from the door into the vehicle. They will be housed in a rubber sleeve for protection, but years of opening and closing the door will make the wires week and causes them to crack open and allow them to touch each other. Potentially causing a short. If this is the case it can get a bit tricky to run new wires if you're comfortable trying this.

Headlight flickers or goes out while driving - replaced bulb - same thing. someone said replace a ''power source''??

hi, this is a shorted wire harness. the wire clip that attaches to the back of the bulb has a short in its housing. you will need to replace the headlight wiring harness. this will fix the flickering.

I dont know how to wire it to my car stereo wires

Do yourself a favor and run to audio store or even autoparts store & get an adapter plug/harness, cost is a few bucks but well worth it. It plugs into factory harness & you wire your new stereo to it according to diagram with new system.

We have a problem with our 2000 stratus fuse, everytime we push on he brake pedal the fuse blows? What could be the problem?

It sounds like you have whats called "a short to ground" Breaks operate on whats called an open circut, only when you ppress the pedal does it allow the eectricity to flow hence lighting the rear break hights. You have a pinch wire which is grounding the system. Each time you press the pedal it sends the current to that ground shorting the circut and blowing the fuse. Trace the wires in the trunk as best you can and look for any damaged wires(oinched ,stripped, also check the break light socket .
