Start by removing non- essential fuses, then see if starting and engine are funcioning properly- with engine off, check and see if you get a spark (watch/listen)when disconnecting-reconnecting cables. Start replacing fuses one- by one, repaeating the checks each time.

This will help detirmine wich circuts have shorts in them. Get a wiring diagram for your model(or two/three that are close to yours) and trace the troublesome circuts. It's tedious, yes, but you will find your problem.
