Your first place to look is to make sure all you do not have any blown fuses. Other than that it would depend on the component that soes not function.

If all fuses are good, then concentrate on the wires that deal with your problem.. wiring schematics aren't freely available for some stupid reason.

but some are availbe free online it depends on your car .

Some Hayes manual and bookstores and librarys have books that address this area. And have schematics and how tos. When u know what to get to and where. then you can start with removing your dashboard.. Again Having a Hayes manual for your car would be a good start. But always look for more information .. it'll come in handy when something on the pages looks diffrent from whats on your car and why..

Why does your 1988 Chevrolet Suburban quit running when you turn your wipers on?

Definitely sounds like an electrical short cutting the power to the ignition system. The first place you may want to start looking is the wiring in the steering column if the windshield wiper controls are on the steering column, or behind the dash if the controls are on the dash. The most obvious signs would be burnt and/or bare wires.

If you have a '95 Ford Windstar with an electronic instrument panel display and there is a short in the dash where should you start looking for the short?

the trouble isn't a short. the connector behind the instrument panel locks into a plug that is attached to the dash itself. The copper terminals spread out after being disconnected two or three times, causing the lights or guages to act up intermittently esp. over bumpy roads. Take the cluster out and clean the board terminals and close up the harness connector terminals. Warning, there are live wires there, disconnect your battery first.
