Question about 1993 Ford Festiva
I left my headlights on and killed the battery. I jump started the car and it burned the fuse after it started.I charged the battery over night and it ran fine for a month.I stopped at a gas station the other night and left the headlights on for about ten minutes.when I started the car it burned the fuse.I charged the battery for an hour and it is now fine but if I let the battery get a little low it will burn the fuse.
This is not a battery problem there is a short in the system. a low battery will never blow a fuse because in order to blow a fuse you have to excede the amprage rating and a short will do this look for a loose wire on the headlight harness or a bad connector........please rate this

SOURCE: fusible link in 1993 festiva
Had a customers car do this and tested the daylights out of everything to no avail..."non-factory" solution was to replace link with a 30 amp breaker...when problem happened breaker would open, then close several minutes later, returning to normal operation. Can't hurt to try it!!!
