Electrical Gremlin

Ok, so after a long road trip I find my windows and my interior and step lights do not work. I go to change the fuse (14) and the lights come on for a split second then pop. I try again with the doors shut after waiting a minute I plug in the new fuse and same thing. Where do I even start with this?

I guess unplug each to see which fixes it.
You might have a chaffed wire in the steering column

I would pull the drivers side door sill up and see what it looks like under there, especially up front by the kick panel. Look for chafed or cut wires. Maybe, if it looked good, then the pass side...

would it have to be a wire related to those functions or could a short anywhere cause the issue?

It would be on that circuit. I agree it has to be a chafed wire somewhere.

ok, pulled all of the sills, driver kickplates and inspected under the pilar trims too, everything looks ok, I also checked the bundle that runs from the truck to the dorr, it checks out. Checked the wiring to the light under the hood, ok. I unplugeed each switch individually at the drivers controls with no change. So I guess my problem is between the box and the switches? I dont know if I need to test the lighting as it comes on for a second before the fuse pops.Is there a switch or a relay I am missing somewhere?
