    Hi Jamie, to state the obvious theres a short circuit somewhere. :Smile: you need to get a multi meter with a man who knows how to use it if you do not to do some continuity checks to track it down. without some fault finding i doubt anyone could say without extreme luck.
    i would advise not swapping wires around with power on even though its only 12v you can cause damage to equipment and / or even a fire.:cry:
    good luck with the fault finding its probably someting simple..:thumb:

    Hi Jamie and welcome :thumb: you have a short somewhere so you need to check the wiring,if you are unsure either post some pics of wiring or get a sparky /auto electrician to have a look at it
