If after unhooking motor it still blows fuse! Find line side of fuse put a wire on it! On load side of put wire on it! Put a 12 volt bulb on these to wires! If the bulb lights full (dead short) move wires till light gos out! This will save you fuses!

Those first two responses are exactly where I would start.I use an old headlight across the fuse terminals,and hang it from the rearview so you can see it.Then start wiggling wires,and disconnecting components until the light goes out,or very dim.

If your still stuck,call me at the shop tommorow.

Dealer retail $208.00

Garage wholesale $173.00

Prices are CDN,so i would assume it's about 30% cheaper in the US.
