What I would do is to find the splice, then go to the component listed as being fed from it. Like say the brake light switch, unplug it, does the short go away? Then go to the cluster itself, unplug it, check again. If you buy the short finder I added, inside it is nothing more than a self-resetting circuit breaker, you can change that piece out for different ones by just buying a different breaker in the parts store. I have made a few of them with different ratings and painted the PVC tube with the color of the fuse. If you hit Amazon with Auto-Reset Mini ATM Circuit Breaker, you will see the type I used. You can also use the stud versions the parts stores sell. It will likely take a bit to find because unlike more modern cars they fed a lot off of the single fuse.
