    I didn't think the instrument panel fuse would cause a non-starting situation but that doesn't matter at present, you need to pinpoint the short in your electrical system.

    Go get a 12V test light, most any discount tools place or auto parts store will have one. Hook the clip up to one of the fuse terminals (use a paper clip if need be) and the "probe" end to the other. Chances are the light will shine bright if you've got a dead short somewhere.

    Now, here comes the fun and it's better if you've got a helper. Move, twist, shake or what have you any electrical harness you can get at until (hopefully) the light goes dim or out.

    You will have pinpointed the area where the short is and further investigation should find the culprit.
