w210 hazard and turn signal fuse blows

After I was installing my new heated seats and wiring, I noticed that my hazard and blinkers do not work when I installed the new switch panel. Each time I put a fuse in #5 under the hood it blows immediately no matter what the amp fuse I try. My experience is telling me that I have a short somewhere or it's grounding out. Are the pins exactly the same for the hazard switch in a 96 and a 98? Everything worked before I switched center console switches with a 1998 E430 bezel since it had the heated switches I needed and was in better shape.

You will have to figure out where it is shorting out, along the ground wire.

I'm sick of trouble shooting... but I thought about it for a second and realized this all happened after I put in the new switches. I took the bezel off and unplugged the harness to the hazard switch and plugged my old one back in and replaced the fuse and it worked. Turns out the bezel w/heated seat switches I purchased were from a W208 NOT a W210. Although everything appears identical the wires going to it are not. I just switched my old hazard switch into the new bezel and everything works perfectly now. I basically answered my own question. I'll have to start thinking more before posting it right away so I don't keep looking like an idiot lol.
