Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport
Replace fuses drive around for 30 min.. come back turn off engine go to start it and it blows the fuse
The most common cause of this is that the fuel pump is drawing to much current due to wear and a possible burned fuel tank connector at the tank. To replace the pump you must raise the truck up and remove the fuel tank. Also replace the fuel filter which is on the inside of the frame on the drivers side. Use a rag to cover the fuel line when disconnecting it with the required special tool.

if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing
sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go

the fuel pump and radio are not on the same circuit, most liokely the fuel pump is shorted, that is the most common cause, get under the truck and disconnect the fuel pump connector at the tank, if the fuse doesn't blow then u need a new pump.

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 ..
