As long as your are in .el file, hit C-h f and C-h v while on a
function/variable and follow the link to the file from within the Help

Or you can add the following to your .emacs,


Then you can do `C-x F' to find a function, `C-x V' to find a variable
or `C-x K' (for eg, C-x K C-x C-f) will jump directly to the command
bound to that particular key sequence.

There are other usefuly binding as below,

    | (defun find-function-setup-keys ()
    |   "Define some key bindings for the find-function family of functions."
    |   (define-key ctl-x-map "F" 'find-function)
    |   (define-key ctl-x-4-map "F" 'find-function-other-window)
    |   (define-key ctl-x-5-map "F" 'find-function-other-frame)
    |   (define-key ctl-x-map "K" 'find-function-on-key)
    |   (define-key ctl-x-map "V" 'find-variable)
    |   (define-key ctl-x-4-map "V" 'find-variable-other-window)
    |   (define-key ctl-x-5-map "V" 'find-variable-other-frame))
