Default toggle switch problem

Ok sa I have a 05 1800mx about a week ago the toggle switch for my bilge broke off. i replaced it today and had the power on while i was doing this, while under the dash all of the rest of my toggles fell off and when i touched them they were all hot to the touch in fact one burnt me a little i assume this has to be a short somewere and am wondering if anyone else has ever had the same issue so i might have some idea were to start nothing appears to be pinched or broken anywere else

Have you added/modified/fixed etc etc any electrical item on the boat recently? Added a stereo for example or stuck a lose wire back into place?

My advice is to take it to the dealer ASAP

actually no i have not added anything lately. however since posting this i found that the problem is starting in the toggle marked for accy by disconnecting each switch at a time i was able to find that it is coming from this switch. i still have to trace the wire to find out what it is connected to. when i turn the switch on it blow the fuse instantly i will let everyone know what caused this onced i have found it
