So my sammy is more of a tinker with every now and then toy and gets driven around the property and neighborhood as a fun truck.
Now the issue is last time i drove it i was cruising around the neighborhood and it just stopped all together couldnt get it to crank at all.
Turns out i have some kind of short somewhere or some kind of electrical problem I think.
Reason i believe this is when i try and turn the key to on the ignition fuse blows.
I have charged the batter gotten new battery cables, grounded the body to frame and body to battery with the old cables just to make sure its not a bad ground issue.
after doing so i put a 30 amp fuse in and noticed the positive terminal getting warm. I have tried pulling the wires off the alternator and off the coil and both still blew the fuse.
I am at a loss idk where to check next or what to look for.
I honestly want to just start replacing ignition switch , starter, coil, these are the only things i really can relate with the ignition circuit.
