    well, i agree it did what it was supposed to do, the end of the dryer vent was pinched up in the joist, so it wasnt venting properly...I fixed that problem though...i did a continuity check on the start button and it seemed fine also..the weird thing is it completed a load, not like it quit during operation, it just never started up a few days later

The thermal fuse blew for a reason and by bypassing it you most likely damaged the dryer even if it did work temporarily.

I have, when I first bought my 02 Liberty. It ended up being a faulty ECU. ECU is the computer brain that controls the whole car. I had it replace and it never happened again.

SOURCE: Cruise control switch works sporatically.

Faulty product. I install cruise control for 6 years. One of the cables are hooked into the throttle and the other in the vaccuum actuator, since it is electronically controlled actuator, the object itself might be losing it's contents or frankly worded, is taking a nose dive. works much like a brake booster does.

Is it a PID system? (Proportional integral derivative system)
or is it just standard proportional?

That will play a factor.

If you just have one of those cheesy controls (cruise controls), than replace it, obviously it wouldnt of cost much. if it is not, check the actuator and replace it! Replace the Fuse, brush it with wire brush, clean up all connections.
You should be ready to roll!

Good Luck.

180 milli-amps is way to much draw,ford's limit is 50 milli-amps but typically we usually only see around 20-30. Now when you say fuse 2 is that in the under-hood fuse panel or the interior fuse panel? And if this vehicle is a 2007 it may still be under factory warranty which was 36 months or 36000 miles providing that the add on automatic starter is not causing your draw.Which in that case the people who installed it should be responsible for that.

When you turn the ignition to on you should here the fuel pump run. If you aren't hearing it then it sure sounds like the pump. Assuming nothing has happened to the car to affect electrical connections. I don't think there is a fuse for the pump but worth checking also.

Check under the hood at that fuse box there should be a 40 amp fuse in a slot marked "run ign" or some such thing, for about $3.75 if you replace that fuse it should start working again, this just happend to me a month ago.
