I think your problem is the electric control module. its a little black box under the dash that controls the head lights and parklights and interior lights. your doors have a switch by the door latch,when you open the door. use a screw drive to lock the door with out closing it . then see if the fuse still pops. if it does yous problem is the latch itself

I would check for traces of water that have leaked into the inside fuse panel. You can sometime see rust marks on the metal parts of the dash around the fuse panel. There is a module on the back of the fuse panel and wire connectors that you can remove and inspect for water. If you find water in the fuse panel...the module and fuse will need to be replaced. If no water is found...the circuit that keeps blowing the fuse will need to be traced for a short. I could not find any common circuits for the wipers,power windows or lights.

I have a 2001 Ford F150. It turns over but will not crank. Tried to jump it off but will not start. Gages and lights work inside. What does that sound like to you? Someone mentioned a fuel pump module....

That may be the problem, you would have to do one thing to make sure and that spray starting fluid into the throtle and if it starts for a few seconds then i would say its the fuelpump module, a fuelpump module is a unit with the fuelpump and preasure sensor and sending unit as one i will show you a picture, this unit is located inside the gas tank the tank will need to be dropped in orderto install the pump module, in goes in on top of the tank after tank is removed,johnjohn2_15.jpg

Cant find generic electronic module

You probably have a door ajar switch that is bad. You can check the grounds coming from the switch that goes to the gem module and it should change from open to ground when you open and close the door. If you really think the gem module is bad or want to check it with your scematic. The gem module should be piggy backed behind the fuse panel inside your pick if you remove the fuse panel inside your truck you should be able to access the module but you have to remove the fuse panel completely from the truck to remove the gem module. Good luck with your problem.

Gearshift locked, no power windows, interior lights, wipers

For starters, do you have brake lamps? The shift lockout is controlled by the brake switch. As far as the others, yes it could be the GEM (generic electronic module) some of these vehicles have water intrusion problems that leat into the fusebox and GEM which is located on the back of the fuse box. If you can look at the fuse box inside the vehicle and if you can see the back, look for corrosion which is a sign of water.

Power windows

sounds like you have a problem with the gem module, (generic electronics module). This is a common problem with most ford trucks and suv's. you can find it behind the knee bolster on the drivers side under the dash.... hope this info helps.
