    The five amp fuse is usually the diode in the MPEM. You probably need an new MPEM.

    You can try replacing the diode in the MPEM first. It's the most common cause of the 5A fuse blowing.

    Thanks for the reply Blackhawk36 . Not what I wanted to hear but after spending last Sunday trying to track the short thats what I concluded so I guess this is conformation.

    There are some threads on here explaining how to replace the diode. It is a lot of work but if you are handy with electronics, it may be worth a try. The part is cheap.
