You can try dissconnecting the power under the seat. Will ussually be a two wire harness. Wires are bigger than others that are present. Try replacing your fuse. If the fuse still blows you know the problem is not the seat. From there I would power the seat with two wires you can run directly from battery power. Put the seat where you want, and your good. Cheers

Look for a short on the LG/R wire coming out of the BOO (brake on/off) switch.

SOURCE: 1996 ford explorer windows, locks and seat fuse keeps blowing

Disconnect as many of the door switch wiring plugs, and wiring plugs for the seats that you can. Then, drop in a fuse. If it blows, you probably have a wiring issue, not a switch issue. If it doesn't blow immediately, reconnect the doors, and seats one at a time till the fuse does blow. Once it does, you've isolated your problem to a smaller area, and can replace / rewire that component.

If you've disconnected everything, and the fuse still blows, you probably have a wiring issue that will need to be traced. You will need a multimeter that can read ohms. You'll need to isolate different parts of the circuit (probably by unplugging and or cutting a wire in that circuit unfortunately) then use the multimeter to test the ohms from that part of the circuit to NON voltage side of the fuse holder. (If you try to test ohms on a hot circuit you will likely fry your multimeter!). If the meter reads low ohms, there is your short. High ohms (infinity) means there is no circuit, and there is no short. When you hit on something of low ohms, you've isolated the problem to a smaller area, and can keep tracing that wiring back to the fuse box to find your short.

Good Luck.

Replace the wire. It is shorting to ground, causing the fuse to blow.

My 2001 ford pickup wont start fuse #30 in the fuse box keeps burning as soon as i turn the key to the on position


This is for sure a short issue. It could be where the fuse is seated but not the whole fuse board. With low voltage there is no magic other than tracing the wiring back from the problem to the source point and checking each connection until you find the short/grounding problem.

Drivers seat will not move in any direction on 2000 ford winstar the seat is power


It may not be fused, if it is it will be marked. I believe there is a cicruit breaker on this model and not a fuse. Also have you probed the seat switch harness to see if it has 12 volts to it?

2001 chevy tracker ,what would cause the fuse for brake lights to blow? already tried unplugging wire harness to back of car at fuse block.


This all depends, if the fuse blows as soon as you put it in without stepping on the brake pedal then theres a dead short in the fuse box or the power wire going to the brake switch is shorting out, this 15amp fuse runs from the fuseox to brake light switch, so the short is between that but if it blow with brake pedal pushed then you said you dissconnect the rear brake light at fuse box and fuse still blows so the next step inwhich power is feed from this fuse is the following and you will need to unhook these components one at a time until short is gone. the next location is the the abs brake control module which is by the master cylinder area after that it goes to the cruise contorl servo also under the hood, then it goes to the shifter release solenoid which is very common problem, the wires melt or short out in that area, and next it goes to computer which i dont think is the problem and from there it feeds the rear lights and third brake light. hope this helps, good day.

Brake fuse blows as soon as replaced 2001 ford taurus


That usually means short to ground..Look for a wire touching the frame or the body of the car somewhere..Check around the brake switch which is located on the brake pedal...Disconnect the connector and try the fuse again..If it doesnt blow then i would think the switch is bad..Also check around the brake lights and make sure the wires look ok..That is if your talking about the brake light fuse

I have a 1994 Ford Mustang, but I can't get the power seats to work. The drivers seat is stuck all the way forwards, and I cannot find the manual release lever for it. How can I get it to move backwards?...


Ive got a 94 mustang and had the same problem... check in the engine where the fuse box is. My problem was the fuse was blown out so it was a quick fix. but if thats the case replacing the fuse is only halfway fixing it because you have to find out what caused it to blow. chances are its a bad ground wire because thats what mine was. as far as the manual release switch i couldnt say on that one because i dont know

88 t-bird fuse problem


Sounds like a power wire short.

If you have a short in the power wire to the seats, it will cause the fuse to get hot...and blow.

Look under the seat(s) to see if any wires got run over by the seat tracks.

A good way to troubleshoot the problem is to disconnect both seats from thier factory anthenol connector, and put fuse in. Plug in each seat. When the fuse blows, you will know which seat is the 'culprit'/Short (power wire going directly to ground)

Inspect problem seat's wiring, check for shorts.
