It depends on what type of short . Is it a short to ground . Or is It a short ro positive

Or is it just an open wire .

1 If its a short to ground and is blowing the fuse you need to know how many amps

the short is drawling on the system first. so you do not damage the system.

If you have a short detectror that runs over the wireing it is a easy job as long as

you can fallow the wires. you need to feed a small amont of current threw the system

and trace the wires with a short detector. with out a short detector you must use a

multimeter . select ohms scale . maesure resistance of the circuit in question . then

shorten your distence from on end of circuit to the other to you narrow down the spot

of the short.

2 Its pretty much the same thery ecept it will not draw any current as positive only atracts to negative & vicversa.

3 an open is easy to find with a test light or multimeter. Just start tracing the circiut

by probing if theres a current the light will light up or the meter will read voltrage or amps depending on what scale the meters set on. as sooon as you looseyour current that's were the wire is open . use your multimeter on the ohms scale to check

the circuit fisrt to see if it has an open or not.

Problem sounds like either ignition or fuel system, meaning bad plug wire, moisture in the electrical system under the hood or bad fuel, clogged injectors. Sounds more like an electrical problem to me, maybe even a bad spark plug.
