How to find a short in my wiring harness for a 1989 honda prelude? The fuse blew and now my tach,gas gauge,clock and blinkers don't work I put a higher amp fuse in and it lasted about 5 days and blew...
at least you know were to start,key on the fuse that blew.and everything controlled by it.i'm assuming that every time you replace the fuse now,it blows .think back before the short,was there any electricial problems,or devices that didnt work.,wires are melted together,or motors are shorted out.putting a bigger fuse in probably burnt a wire open(meaning got too hot and broke)whatever blew the fuse to start with,is most likley where the meltdown is ,start unplugging the things on that fuse,one at a time,remove tail lightbulbs,inspect thre sockets,look up under the dash at the wiring ,your clock,tach.and gas gauge ,are there,observation is almost 90%of trouble shooting anything .fixing it is easy pop the hood spend some time just looking at every thing follow wires make sure they arent melted together ,and are plugged in,just unplugging something and plugging it back in will show problems,things will fall apart.clips will break and hopefully you will see something obvious,shorts are never fun,do you have any electrical background?and know how to use a multimeter .if you do reply ,
