Here it is. Thought my headlight switch was bad. I would have to wiggle it to get dash lights and headlights at the same time. Replaced it and same issue. This time is shorted the battery any suggestions? i am pulling the whole dash today. I will fin d and kill the gremlin in my car. For those who have seen my posts before i thinking of changing the cars name to frankenstang due to all mismatched bs the previous owners did.

Yet again. Found a mess of wiring in the dash that makes no sense. Cuts splices mixed up wires. Time to solder and replace.

if you wiggled the switch and it temporarily fixed the issue, its most likely the wiring coming off of it. your gonna have to use wiring cpshemarics and chase the problem. of course starting at the switch. make sure each wire that is suppose to gets voltage when it is suppose to. then check all the wires with voltage with continuity to ground with power off.
