Hello everybody. The interior of my 300SD has been dark for several weeks now, due to a short somewhere in my electrical system. The fuse which connects with my interior lights and my power antenna blew about three weeks ago. I replaced the fuse a couple days later, and the lights worked for about a day. Then fuse then blew again. When I went to replace it the second time, it blew as I installed it.
Today I finally got around to trying to fix the problem. I thought that the problem might be a mechanically stuck power antenna, so I disabled it. The fuse still blew. I checked all of the interior lights for bare wires and found none. It would be quite nice to have my interior lights work again. Does anybody have any ideas as to how I might find where the short(s) in my system is/are?
