Ignition fuse blowing

was running my 2006 660 rhino yesterday and all of a sudden the engine quite, and the dash lights went out, checked my fuses and the 10A ignition fuse was blown I changed it and turned the key on (did not try to start it) just power on the dash lights lit up for 1 second than the fuse blew again, sounds like a short looked around did not see anything let it sit for the night put in another fuse and same outcome. Any help in what to look for would be great, thanks

i heard of someone having a similar problem and it turned out to be a bad CDI. aside from that, just go over the wires really well looking for anything melted or where it may have worn the insulation off leaving a bare spot to short on something. make sure your ground is good too. this falls under one of those pain in the ass problems to fix.

Put a new fuse in and unplug the cdi box before turning the key on, after you turn the key on plug the box in, if it blows right away you have a bad cdi.

That fuse comes off your main switch and goes to the CDI and your dash display. If the only fuse being blown is the ignition, then your switch is fine, you might try unplugging the connector on the back of your dash and see if your machine will start. Also, all of the indicator lights are powered by this same fuse, so they could be shorting and causing the fuse to blow. If your machine starts with the dash unplugged, then there is something wrong with the digital dash. Otherwise see Dirtys comment below:

Thanks
I went out and did what rippinitup7 recommended unpluged the cdi box and when I turned over the key all dash light was working just fine, pluged cdi in and fuse went, also noticed CDI had a little smoke coming out as where the plugs go in this is how the seal the unit but the seal had let go, I called Dynatek as my CDI is out of warranty they asked me to send it to them and they would take a look at it and send me a new replacement for about $100, which is what I will do.
Thank you everyone for your help

Ah see you let the smoke out...nothing ever works the same without the right amount of smoke! Hope you have your stock CDI to keep riding while the other gets fixed...

I really appreciate the offer but I am up in Alberta, Canada, and I am going away for a few weeks, the new one should be here when I get back,
Again thanks for the offer,

1 REASON WHY DYNATEK IS #1.

I called Dynatek as my CDI is out of warranty they asked me to send it to them and they would take a look at it and send me a new replacement for about $100, which is what I did. about 2 week later I received a new CDI from Dynatek couriered back to me in Canada at no charge, Even out of warranty Dynatek takes care of you. I would have no trouble purchasing products from Dynatek in the future. A proud Dynatek Customer, and my Rhino is running great again.
