    oil temp blowing fuses?

    ok so i have the factory option 3 guage cluster, boost, volt and oil temp. ever since i bought the car the oil temp never worked. i have taken it in to them and they said that it never read like that before. i know they are just full of it and did not want to deal with the idiots that they are. so when i was installing my stereo i noticed why it was not working. someone had cut the power wire to it. it is a red wire behind the stereo. any ways i hook up the wire where it was cut and hook everything back up. as soon as i turn the key to turn the stereo on nothing. the stereo and guages do not work. so i go and check fuses. the stereo fuse was blown. replace it and samething happens. i didnt want to mess with it so i cut the wire again and put everything back together.
    i am just using the recommended 15 amp fuse.

    does anyone know if i have to use a different fuse or should i go and just check the wiring for the short?

    thanks for any input.

    Sounds like a direct short to me.

    If you bought it used, maybe the previous owner botched he wiring job when installing the stereo.

    I'd go get the factory wiring schematic, uninstall your gauges and troubleshoot it.
