Question about 2003 Ford Escape
The fuse in slot 15 is for park lamp, front position lamps, license lamps, tail lamps, park lamp relay(coil), trailer fuse, illumination fuse, and fuse in slot 24 is for stoplamps, high mounted stoplamp, trailer stop lamp, ABS unit, ASC unit(brake pedal position switch) PMC, Shift solenoid. I change the fuse for slot 15 and it blows right away and slot 24 will blow a little later. Both are 15A fuses

Sounds like your auto shifter handle has a short in it. If the od lamp does not light up when pushed you have a short. You can try repairing the wiring or replace shifter handle.

SOURCE: Fuses keep blowing
Re check the connections, it sounds like you have a short in the Wireing harness. If you park you car where there are lot's of small animals link mice, squirels ect. They come out this time of the season looking for things to chew on and make a home out of.
Sorry for the shot in the dark but it does happen and if you do park your car where there are lots of small animals. Fabric sofener's in the car like under the seat keep's them away.
Good luck and hop this helps

SOURCE: fuze #14 blown. this powers
please give me the year of the f-150 and any added option you have so i can check the schematic's to see if i can pin point something that could cause this issue.
very strange one though. but must have something to do with it going 60... you said you isolated a few thing does that mean you have tested them and ruled them out?

see the end of this message for important information........................................
there were some models where that oil switch was causing fires .. even fatalities but i dont see that recall on your model ... it would be a sensible thing though to not replace that fuse until the problem is fixed .. as i recall the fires were casued by brake fluid leaking into a switch mounted in the braking system/speed control .. the switch had power on it all the time so it was even dangerous with the key off .. since i didn't see that recall for your model that doesn't mean a similar problem couldn't exist ..i would error on the side of safety .. here is a list of recalls for your explorer
WOW .. your car has been recalled for that fire condition .. i just missed it .. a little further look and here is what i found :................
if this is your case then its not safe to drive or even to put the car in or near your garage until repairs are made ..
