RE: [DML] Fuse #12 Blues

It seems to me that the best way to diagnose this is to check the diodes in
the circuit, and separate the circuit into sections to track down any short
to ground.

Where in the car do the two wires splice/join in the two halves of the door
lighting system (ground)?

ANY help appreciated.

Most or all of my interior bulbs are burnt out I think (low on my list as
I'm not driving the car much yet), but the red and yellow lights in the
doors work.  Up until a few days ago they worked fine, went off with the
door switch normally.  Then they stayed on one night,  I charged the battery
back up and pulled fuse #12 and they went out, fuse back in and they came on
- no surprise there.  Then I pulled both wires off the back of both door
switches until I had time to replace or repair the faulty door switch - and
the lights stayed on.

I looked at the wiring diagram and realized that I must have a faulty light
delay module, so I pulled it out.  With that module (the white one) out, and
both door switches unplugged, the lights were still on.

I assume I have a bad diode or two, but where else do I look for a short to
ground, which I assume is the problem.

Fuse #12 sits lonely in the ashtray tonight,  waiting for its chance to be
reinstalled, please help.
