Exclamation Guage fuse keeps blowing. Need help ASAP

I have my 83 camaro z28 iroc Z and it was in good condition till a couple of days ago when I took it out for school. I noticed when i got home that my radiator coolant all leaked out and my passenger carpet was soaked and my guages except for speedometer stopped working. I checked the fuse and it wad blown out. I replaced it and not even two seconds pass and it blows again. Anyone knows why ?

First, An '83 IROC? No, an '83 is not an IROC. The IROC wasn't introduced until model year 1985.

The engine coolant Disappearing and passenger side floor being wet is the heater core. Need a new heater core. That's under the dash on the passenger side. The blown fuse could be related, but not likely. A blown fuse is usually caused by a short.

Well it has iroc z on the side and it has it marked in the papers.

But how can i find the short. It only started happening when the coolant all leaked out. Thats when my fuel,temp, battery, and rpm stopped working. It was working just fine. Everytime i put a fus and turn the key it blows.

The Gages Fuse is used for supply power to a lot of things.

if the problem is inside the car you must remove the console and check for any shorts at the harness.

at the passenger side are the A/C system control cables and ECU connectors.
but it first pass thrugh the drivers side from the C100 and the Fusebox and from the ignition switch.

i had a similar problem whith my 84, i decided to rebuild most of the harness due to the extreme modifications and cables cutted maded by the previous owmer.

but if you remove the console dash be sure to deconnect everithing and the harness comes out toghether

the link is for the wiring diagram corresponding to the Gages Fuse
