It may be easiest to test at a time when the fuse has blown. Otherwise, you’ll have to wiggle the wiring in each of these circuits, in an attempt to get the fault to occur.

I'm sure you've already noticed that that thread is about a similar problem with a '94, 1.6 Sidekick.

I'd like to think that you are already aware, that there are significant differences between the earlier 1.6 Sidekicks, and the 1.8 Sidekick Sport that you have - the engine and its associated electronics are amongst those differences.

The advantage that the user in that thread has, is that the short is "constant", yours is intermittent, making the diagnosis much more challenging, yes, it could be a chafed wire shorting to ground, it's common with the 1.6, 16v engines, not so common with the J series.

Good luck.

Yes it is different. However, it serves a clue!!
