Thanks guys,

If I keep the wires there for lighting or whatever (fine idea), I still need to trace them back to the origin at the starter and disconnect and remove them there, right?

My question is how do I positively trace them there so that I can disconnect them from the starter properly in order to reuse them?

The Newman Skoolie!

You could buy or borrow a "fox and hound"



I've used ones like this for years. It will positively locate the wires for you.

Why don't you just cap off the wires and wait until you think of something to do with them later.
If you took it to an electrical shop they would use an electrical tracer like the Triplet unit shown. Since the circuit seems to be dead now it may have blown a fuse. That would tell you where it came through the fuse panel.

Honestly, don't you think you ought to leave well enough alone concerning the electrical stuff? This seems to be a lot of stress for you. I agree that you don't need the safety devices, but removing them hasn't been going so well.

Thanks Robin97396 and others!

Agreed, I can certainly move on. My focus was partly due to curiosity but mainly due to the fact that she wouldn't start and I thought that switch was the culprit. At this point I will definitely just cap them off while I focus on the roof raise prep.

Again thanks a million to you all for the help!

Sorry that was so stressful for you. That would bother me intensely if my bus wouldn't start.
Hey, automotive electrical has never been my strong suite. Regardless of all the suggestions put to Jman6631 by all of us, what worked was when he fixed the short himself. Somehow his door safety system is completely disabled now and not by anything any of us suggested to correct the situation.

It wasn't that stressful honestly, it had to get resolved of course but was more of a strong curiosity than anything else. The rest of the electrical, wel....
