Well it may sound stupid but check your cigarette lighter to see if there are any coins in there, they can do alot of damage. If thats ok, it sounds like your multifunction switch. It is located in the steering column. It is where your turnsignals are connected to. You would have to take off the plastic cover on the steering column to see what is going on, be careful and good luck.

Ignition system wiring diagram


You burned out a fusible link at the starter motor. The wiring is shorted to ground down there somewhere. Raise the car up and inspect for the damaged wiring and then replace the fusible link. The links are color codes for amperage, most are 30 amperes.

Hi ,
Sounds like you burned a "fuse able link". If you open your hood and look going away from the battery at all the wires you probably will see which wire melted. These links are designed to prevent major wiring harness fires. So you have a major dead short in your wiring. It would be difficult to lead you through the tracing down of the short but with a careful eye you may be able to see the bad wire as it will show signs of arcing. Good Luck!!!!!
