Hey,

Take the NEG battery terminal OFF the battery (leave POS side on the batt) and then check the same path you were checking with the test light. if you get a light (testlight LIT) on the "negative" side of any of your interior light circuits you have a short in the wiring somewhere.

Electron flow can be described as a phenomona.....

There are two schools of thought here, one is electron flow is the passing of electrons from one chemical substance to another along a resistive path (i.e battery and corresponding circuitry) hence positive to negative current flow. The second theory is that electrons create "holes" in electrical charged circuits (again along a resistive path), thereby current actually flows from negative to positive.. this is why most car manuals say to disconnect the "NEG" side of the battery terminal first before doing any work on the car which may endanger the ECU etc etc etc...

(ya I know, blah blah blah)............:snooze:

anyway good luck, try the removal of the neg side of the batt and test again ok?

cheers!!
