Fuse #9 on the interior panel, 15A, labeled 'IGN/LPS'. I keep popping the fuses. The problem is, it is very sporadic. Last weekend I put 150 miles on a single fuse, and on a short 2-mile run down the street it popped.
I have a serious hot wore going to ground, as I can hear the fuse blow, with relative authority. I've searched this, and it showed that several others have had similar symptoms, but were vague with a solution to it.
My question is: What (or where) could the short be that is causing the fuse to blow?

You are going to have do some circuit tracing. Do you have a soldering iron and meter? If not get them. 30 watts will do. Home Depot has a good selection, gas is nice as you can use them in the field.
You will need a back up bulb and appropriate socket.
After you have acquired these, get one of your open (blown) fuses and look for the two metal tabs on the top. Solder the back up light socket to these tabs. Install the light bulb and insert the fuse into the #9 slot. When the light lights you have your short. So now start wiggling wires, you already know what stops working when the short occurs. This may take some time look in obvious places where the wire may chafe.
