Datsun electrical problem (daughter's car)
Guys I need some help. I was able to get this 280zx running back in the fall. Now I have completed the body restoration minus paint and I want to get the interior installed. However, when I crank it it blows one of the ignition fuses. I traced the problem to a short to ground on a +12wire. So I started removing wires from this circuit. Datsun ran a hot wire off the ignition switch then split it 4 ways with splices. I cut one of the wires and the short to ground was gone. So I checked the wire I cut away and it was NOT shorted. I played this game for a while with no luck. It doesn't make sense that a combination of wires would cause a short to ground but no single wire shorts to ground alone.
