Any suggestions other than taking it

You may be able to find out where the short is by just doing a systematic check of the wiring. If in fact, it is one the right side or the left, that is where you start looking. Any panels in the trunk should be removed, see if something is rubbing. Do this until you find exposed wires and tape them up individually, More times than not, the culprit will be due to a rub. That's what to look for. Good Luck
