step on the brakes and a fuse blows. The middle upper brake light totally blew up but that isn't the short. Fun tip, car won't go from Park when trying to start (its a Ford safety thing). So you can jury rig and fool the starter by turning the switch but not letting the engine lights come on, go to Neutral and start it...

Mechanic is going buggy trying to find the short, anyone else have this problem?

Update: mechanic reports it 'is under the dash", has to get a wiring schematic and attack it tomorrow. All wires to the rear are solid. No smoke so far!

Update: car runs, obviously when the fuse blows I don't smell smoke. Wondered if this is safe to drive during the Holiday weekend? Other than no brake lights! Just wondered if the short leads to more 'shorts' and potential wiring damage. Mechanic is attacking it tonite...
