You probably have a wiring short, and unless you know your way around under the dash, you'd do better taking it to a repair shop that has an employee very knowledgeable specifically in electronic gauge troubleshooting and repair. Save yoursef the time and grief.

SOURCE: 2004 Landrover Freelander stop/reverse light fuse keeps blowing

I had a persistent problem of hill light warning and TCS warning lights coming on for no apparent reason. There is a wire connection between the stop light switch and the control unit to let the system know when brakes are being applied. Changing the stop light switch cured it. The replaced switch was certainly sticking and the new one was of a different design. Replaced it myself as switch comes with a wiring loom. Need to get on your back under the steering wheel! Not very expensive. My car 2001 TD4

Does your Grand Marquis have head lamps with auto lamps ? Which fuse keeps blowing ? Could be a shorted LCM - lighting control module ?

The LCM eliminates the electronic interference and heat associated with the thermoelectric devices used previously. The LCM is a microprocessor-based module that controls several vehicle subsystems. It responds to electrical input signals from various switches, sensors, and external modules..

My 15 amp gauge fuse keeps blowing when im driving


what does this 15A power?
if the slot calls for a 15A, don't go bigger, but look for a shorted wire/loose connection for whatever that fuse powers.
ex: 15A fuse for my lighter keeps popping..... Nevermind, I found a dime stuck in the lighter that caused it.
hope it's not a hard one to track, but let me know and I'll help ya think on the solution.

When I put the car (97 Sunfire) into reverse the backup lights don't come on? Is there a fuse?


yes there is a fuse, but i think more lights than just reverse lights would be out if the fuse was bad. there is a sensor in the tranny which tells the reverse lights to turn on, that sensor might be bad. or there could be a short in a wire which controls positive or ground for the reverse lights, follow the electrical current all the way from the light bulbs themselvs untill you find the problem.

Interior and exterior fuse keeps blowing on my 1999 sunfire


if the fuse keeps blowing then there is an electrical short somewhere and this needs to be found and repaired, fuse keeps blowing so the wires don't over heat and cause a fire, do not put in a larger fuse than is required you can cause a fire
