Finding an Electrical Short (Short-Circuit) on Your Car
Short to ground – A short to ground refers to a current flowing from the circuit to the car body. Wires may chafe and shed their insulation, contacting the body or engine. A short to ground can result in blown fuses, inoperative lights or motors, or “missing” sensors.

The fuse box will always read battery power with the engine off and alternator voltage with the engine running. What you need to find is which fused circuit is drawing power, or AMPS. An old school trick is, with the engine off and key in the off position, disconnect the negative cable and use a single filament bulb, like a back-up light bulb, between the negative cable and the negative power terminal.

The most common type of fuse is a short length of thin wire enclosed in a heatproof casing often glass. The size of the fuse wire is the thinnest that can carry the normal current of the circuit without overheating, and it is rated in amps. The sudden surge of high current in a short circuit makes the fuse wire melt, or 'blow', breaking the circuit.
