blown fuse

I have an old 93 Jeep Wrangler and for some reason a fuse keeps blowing, knocking out all of my gauges including my tach and speedo.

I'm curious if anyone knows what I should check first, Or how to go about checking it?...... the simple..

Thanks for any advice

How long does it take for the fuse to blow?

Right away, and its a dead short. An overload will take longer...


Start disconnecting stuff in that circuit until the fuse doesn't blow.....then you have found it.

It blows right after start up.
I pulled the tach/speedo and all the gauges today and it still blew the fuse...
I started looking at the under dash wiring and noticed a huge cluster of wires running everywhere that I think were from an old alarm system.. It took me a good 2 hours to track all of them down and remove all of that crap (and fix a few wires that I shouldn't have cut ).....
So tomorrow I'll start poking and proding trying to figure out WTH is wrong.

I could really use some wiring diagrams.. Does anyone know of an online source?

Thanks Again
