Front stop light switch blowing fuse (sort of)

Post by chris22indy@att.net »



When I got my 83 standard the front stop light switch was unplugged. So I plugged it in. It immediately fried the old tube fuse. The switch was corroded with brake fluid from a leaky master cylinder. Since then I have replaced the fuse holder to blade fuses, replaced the right hand controls and recently the switch. Plugged it in and 10 minutes later fuse blown. So
since I replaced the right controls and the switch it seems the problem is downstream from the plug for the controls. Any tips on chasing it down? Anybody else experience this?
