Re: [DML] Re: holding buttons - effect on electrical system (David DeLorean)

This is exactly what happened to me.  My wire harness was seated wrong after I did some work on my center console.
The passenger switch would stick and not release properly.
While leaving the DMS spring social last year, my radio died.  Knowing it was most likely a fuse, I replaced it, only to have it blow out again instantly.  My windows also didn't work with that fuse blown.  It took me about an hour to finally realize the passenger window switch was stuck in the depressed position in center console due to the wire harness not being seated properly underneath and pushing it against the console.
When I removed it to fix the issue, I found the harness connector for the switch burned, melted, and shorting out (hence the fuse blowing out)

Long story short, I fixed the harness, and "mended" the connector as best I could (still looking for a replacement if anyone has one).   It surprised me that something so trivial would cause that kind of damage, but now I learned my lesson and will always make sure I seat everything properly.
