Re: [DML] electrical short



Hello, I disconnected the engine compartment switch and removed the bulb and sure enough, that was the problem!  I have an LED "bulb" in the engine compartment light now (tight fit) but I'm a bit reluctant to reconnect the switch.  I'm using my last 10 amp fuse right now.  Thank you for the input, and I usually disconnect the engine compartment lamp when it's open for extended periods of time, but I guess it was still too long.

One thing fixed, door roof seals, here I come!
