I'm currently neck deep in an electrical issue with my BMW 316i – I think I have a short circuit. I found the wires that are blowing my fuses, and it's bad. Like at least 5ft of 8 or more wires fused together behind my dashboard bad. I'm NOT looking forward to replacing said wires. I'm concerned that after I do replace said wires that whatever caused them to fuse together in the first place will just repeat its evil satan inspired process again. What could cause such a calamity?
I'm very, very, ignorant of engine/electrical systems and how they work, so please word your answers accordingly. Assume I'm electrically challenged, because compared to someone who knows what they're doing, I am.
