05 tiburon gs cluster fuse under dash keeps poping.

I have no instruments tack, speedo,gas,temp,odometer. No ac, no cruise control. No power sunroof. And i think its not charging. It left me stranded 5hrs from home. It all started with no low beam headlights. I checked the fuses and everything was ok. So i changed the high and low headlight relays around since they were exactly the same to see if that would fix my low beam problem. I wiggled the dimmer switch then smelled smoke around the bcm. And it pops the 10amp cluster fuse immediately as i replace and turn the key on. Can someone please help me? Im on the road working, and i can catch a ride to work every day, but i have a 5hr drive when i get laid off. Another thing i tested the battery with a multimeter it showed 11.89 vdc. But it wont run very far like that and dies.

Thanks alot

Lee

Another thing i disconnected the dimmer switch. Then put a new fuse in and turned the key on and it popped immediately again. So kinda ruled out the dimmer switch.

Hello again. Sorry to hear your having more electrical problems with your Coupe.

I'd suggest removing the alternator excitation resistor as a simple first step to diagnosing your fault. It's located on the back of the dashboard fusebox/BCM...see below :

I recall an issue where the heavier guage wires going to that fuse box would deteriorate/melt and short. usually very easy to see.

I unplugged the headlight dimmer switch and pulled the hi and lo relays under the hood. Disconnected my radio to make sure i didnt have the pink/black illumination wired connected. And unplugged the interior cluster dimmer switch. Unplugged the alternator. I then put a new 10amp fuse in the f17 slot/ cluster. Fired it up everything worked tac, gas etc. Then it popped. Seen smoke comming up outta the back of the bcm. So i think i need another one. Got over a year on that one for a 5 dollar junk yard find. Is there a better manufacturer bcm for this car? Or does someone on the forum rebuild with better stuff inside?

Thanks alot,

Lee

Did you remove the alternator excitation resistor? Is the short still present with it removed?

Smoke coming from the BCM doesn't necessarily mean that's where the problem lies, although smoke does suggest the BCM is being damaged. You really need to trace the cause of the short circuit and repair it before you can decide whether you need to replace the BCM or not. If you just replace it without finding the root cause of the problem you'll just end up damaging the replacement BCM too.
