Start by disconnecting the battery. Correct the short-to-ground problem. Go to the fuse panel located above the driver's left foot. Remove fuses one at a time and check each for continuity. Replace any blown fuses. Reconnect the battery. Test lights. Have you replaced the ignition switch on this car yet?
