Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Blowing Fuses A month ago i had the battery changed in my 01 zx3 focus. Everthing was hooked up correctly, but now my car is blowing the 30 amp fuse under in the engine that controls the car starting. If i replace it it will be ok for about a week or 2 then it blows again. I believe it has to be somewhere between the battery and the starter, because that is all that controls. I know its not the alternator because the battery still is holding a charge. What would be causing this?

Fuses keep blowing

I do not have the diagram and will be kind of hard to find, but first i'd check the bulb's housing first and foremost, as in most cases where the fuse shorts all the time, it's just because the housing/casing/lens is not sealed anymore and water comes into it and shorts the socket of the bulb, causing the fuse to burn. If everything is OK and there is no water coming into the housing, let me know and i'll do what i can to find some diagrams for you.

I have a 2001 Focus Zx3. The dashlights, parking

Sounds like a short circuit here ? You will need to locate the short circuit . Most probable is the tail lamps and their connections , then number plate lights , then any hinged wiring going from body to a door or trunk (ie No plate illum lights) area . Sometimes the dash dimmer can be a problem . Good luck
