starwagon blows fuse 15

Sounds like a minor short somewhere.... firstly check around near the Alternator for any possible wires in the wrong place..... but I doubt if you will see anything wrong.... This COULD be an Auto Elec job.... but check first just in case it is a loose wire or something

door ajar light is on when all doors are shut, fuel guage reads empty and dummy light is on saying get gas, all lights in the rear do not work i.e. brake, running, reverse, blinker, hazards. 15 amp fuse in panel continues to blow, so something is grounded/shorted. All problems occurred simultaneously. also, car won't shift out of park when started, have to start in neutral and then shift into gear to drive it.

your stop light switch is broken and shorting out hence it will not start in park ,or you have a fitted the wrong bulb in one of the back lights like a twin connector bulb in place of a single or visa versa ,which is blowing the stop light fuse ,with this fuse blown your stop light switch isnt working hence you cannot get it out of park .also flasher could be using the same fuse as the stop lights .side lights should work but if wiring is being shorted out then anything is possible

Reverse light short

if im not mistaken, under the car on the tranny you should find the switch, youll have to consult a manual for the exact location. it should be on the drivers side, look for a bump with wires coming out of it. i was haveing the same problem with my 1985 trooper. i found that the switch was partially unplugged and causing a short, thus blowing the fuse. follow the wires until you find a connection. see if it is unplugged. if not, then check the cotinuity of the switch with a multitester. it may be a bad switch
