Question about 1988 Ford Thunderbird
The power seats, window and dimmer stoped working. i checked the fuse and it got hot and sparked when i pulled it out. i tested it and it was fine( the fuse). any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
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.
