That's a direct short. A wire has damaged insulation & is touching something metal. Check the wiring near the engine. Sometimes if service was recently done that required a wire harness to be moved to get to something else, like spark plugs, for example, the heat from an exhaust manifold may have melted a wire's insulation. Also, check the wiring by the starter & tailgate. If a wire got pinched at a pivot point, such as the tailgate, that could cause the same problem. HTH. -Jim
