Default Found the problem

I found the problem causing my fuse to blow. The wire to the right visor vanity lite shorted inside against the sharp edges in cab roof. I had pulled the wire before and it stopped after exposing about 2-3 inches. after much troubleshooting (with no luck) I went back and pulled visors down again. I noticed left wire was about 6 inches long, right was only 3. After some wiggling and more pulling, the right visor wire did release and reveal 6 inches and the problem. If you feel inside the mount opening for the visor be careful. The sheet metal is razor sharp and cut through the wire (vibration?) causing a short. All I had to do was inspect the wiring to be sure no other damage occurred and tape it up real good. Everything works fine now. No more blown fuses! And the dealer wanted $400 to troubleshoot.
