Room Fuse keeps blowing

OK so I thought I fixed this because after removing the map light panel, I found some melted wires. Well I removed the cancer and it was working fine for a while and now it keeps blowing.

Any one else have this problem?

which fuse is it?

if a fuse pops that means you have a wiring problem for sure.

Yeah it keeps popping, its the ROOM FUSE, which is 15A. But I can't find the wiring problem. I was hoping someone else has come across this.

Making sure it was the 15AMP fuse and not the 100AMP main fuse.

anything else working not functioning proper or does the fuse pop when you push a button or open a door or something?

I'll check that fuse just in case, but it pops as soon as I try to install it or when I reconnect the battery after replacing it.

There's a pretty solid short somewhere, but I just wish I knew where. I think its a wire under the headliner, but I hope not because that would be a total pain in the ass.

No seriously, never did figure it out before getting into an accident.

I had the same problem after I got my headliner changed, but the problems didn't show up until a day later (keyfob, interior lights, radio, center console were all not working). One of the wires on the rear ceiling lights got chafed on the sharp metal that the light panel sits in. Tape the wires, replace the fuse and you should be good to go.
