Trunk button inside the car no longer works. Found out its the fuse. Tried replacing the fuse. Instant blown fuse. Haven't done any electrical work on the car besides minor things that don't even come close to trunk electronics. How the heck do I go about starting to find the problem??

Ok, lemme rephrase. I know the techniques used... but where would be common possible shorts. "Following the wires" would probably take weeks :(
