Re: 87 broncoII

when testing it did you disconnect the negative battery and put a test light between the negative side of the battery and the terminal??

Remove the negative terminal from the battery and run a test light from the disconnected terminal to the connected positive side. The test light will light up bright if there is a short.

Now start to remove fuses one at a time until you see the light go dim, then you know which circuit it is.
