Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado
Blows the fuse instantly. Can and could smell burning wiring in the cab after I tried replacing. Any known common problems with this system if its in headlight system or body control module?

The positive wire in the headlight circuit is shorted to ground someplace, you have to check the wire by following it from where it connects to the headlight back to the switch and then to the fuse block

if you have removed all of the loads and the fuse still blows then there is a short in the wiring. check for places where the protective cover is worn on the wiring harness. you'll have to trace the line from the fuse panel to each of the loads. get a simple volt/ohm meter. check voltage on each side of the fuse holder with fuse removed. may need to use paper clip to get to the contacts. one side will have 12 to 13 volts with respect to chassis ground and the other will have none. check for resistance or continuity to ground on the side with no voltage. you should see zero ohms or continuity. move areas of the harness around while looking at the meter. if it changes reading then that is most likely where your problem is. be sure all loads are disconnected before doing this test. when problem is cleared you will see infinite ohms or no continuity.
