Re: tilt steering doesnt work blows fuses
The wire that supplies a live to your radio, runs from ignition down the steering column. You probably have a chafed wire along that loom, as you tilt the steering, the wire grounds so the accessories fuse/radio fuse blows. Remove the panel under the steering column and/or the shroud around the column and examine the wiring.

i had trouble in my ford pickup the wireing in the stearing colum shorted what caused it was the slack in the tilt ajustment got worn when i put my hands on the steering wheel it pulled down and streached the wires. try ajusting the steering wheel up 1 notch and you may have to replace the wireing in the steering colum
Look for NAKED or LOOSE wires under dash because something is shorting out cause the blown fuses. Possibly in the "Steering Column" if you truck has TILT Steering. LOOSE PLUGINS could cause this as well GOOD LUCK!
fuse 17 looks like it operates the brake switch/brake lights/ and audiable alarm system. go thru the elimination process such as brake bulbs first(take out) see if fuse pops.after applying brakes the hazard-flasher is on this circuit as well so if u have a tilt steering wheel make sure wires are not frayed inside steering wheel column as well. from there it goes to the audible chime warning module..hope this helps
I had a friend who owns a small dealership make a call and he received a wiring schematic that showed that the radio has an external audio amp located under the dash below the steering wheel. The amp was shorted.
