Shop to help trace electrical problem???

Hey Guys, I'm in need of a shop to help me chase down an electrical problem in my moms Rhino.

Here's whats going on, the tail lights and headlight do not work as well as the brake switch. I have to start it every time in neutral. I think what happened is the brake wires in the back got to close to the exhaust and melted them shorting them all out. Everytime I put a new fuse in it pops as soon as I turn on the lights or hit the brakes.

If anyone knows of a shop preferably closer to LA please let me know.

Thanks.

Thanks Granny. I didnt know if John wanted to mess with electrical. This problem doesnt have much to do with making power.

Also I was hoping to stay a little closer to LA.

He is still top on my list though.

Pull the single wire connectors at the back of the bed and try one more fuse and if it still blows, measure resistance to ground for each wire and find the one that is short. Then, go back and find the spot that melted and wrap some black electrical tape around each wire. Recheck and recheck fuse.
