    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    I recently bought a 2007 V-6 convertible mustang repo. The battery has a dead short. Pulled each fuse trying to find the circuit with the short, still the test light you could see from the space station. Also removed the aftermarket radio also. Any help would be much appreciated!

I hadn't...
