Electrical problem 2000 wrangler.

that means 1 of 2 things'
wrong size fuse, you never stated amps. or the color of the ATC fuse.
the correct fuse blows with any short, ending possible fire.

sounds like you have gross electical issues.
even bad battery terminals. clean them.
try a fresh charged battery
use a voltmeter and measure voltage yet.
at the battery and those things that fail?
that speaker noise is alternator whining noise, caused buy shorted diodes in same.
you do know alternator can fail in many a way.
regulates wrong
open diodes, and 1/3 loss of power
shorted diodes turns alternator in to a huge noise generator
over charges battery
to name a few and bad bearings,

Was driving 2002 ford ranger when engine died,lights work,no clicking from starter,could it be the clutch sensor?

The clutch sensor would not cause the dying problem. If you have dash lights that is not an indication that the battery is ok sine they require almost no voltage to turn on. Try your headlights with the key on and see if the dash light dim. This would indicate a battery/charging system problem. Also note if the battery light comes on when the key is turned on. If the other lights work but the battery light does not it indicates the alternator has a problem. If all the lights work fine check for power at the clutch switch which contacts the cluths pedal arm higher up the pedal. Should have power to and thru the switch when cranking.

My battery light is on,I just replaced the alternator and battery but my lights are still dim and the battery light is still on??????

Check the fuses! Many times I have replaced alternators just to find the fuse was blown that tells it to charge. This doesn't mean the alternator wasn't bad, that's what causes the fuse to blow. Just my guess, not knowing anything about what make or model it is.

Both radiator fans don't come on until accelerator pedal is pushed

Check that you have both sufficient voltage and AC system is properly charged. Also that your idle is set correctly. The idle should be higher when you turn on the AC. Does the idle increase / decrease when you turn on / off the AC? Low voltage from the alternator could cause the AC not to work properly but .... I would suspect you would notice that you have very dim headlights at idle if the alternator was not working correctly. The amount of charge in the AC system will definitely cause this type of problem.

Signal lights tail lights work but when i step on the brake pedal the fuse blows

you may have a shorted brake light switch or a wire at the switch that is shorted to ground.the switch is located at the base of the brake pedal lever and has 2 wires connected to it.check to see if the (I think)the orange wire is firmly connected to the plug connector,this wire should be the power wire to the switch and is not the problem as the fuse only blows when the pedal is pushed.the other wire(I think) is a white wire,this wire goes from the switch to the wiring to the brake lights.this wire could be shorting out causing the fuse to blow,and needs to be checked.

check your tail light fuse in the fuse panel owners manual has the fuse numbers matching them with the name of
the circuit. Check the battery charge it fully then do a load test on it. Check all battery cables make sure
they are clean and tight. check the fuseable links. Check the headlight switch. Check for any possiblity of wire loom damge from collision etc.Trailer hitch wiring? If you get it started make sure the alternator is charging. If no start check the power to the st arter solenoid power wire in start position. If it has a clutch make sure the pedal is depressed and check the
clutch switch on the pedal. If Automatic Check neutral safety switch and adjustment. make sure the key is on when testing the lights.

We have a problem with our 2000 stratus fuse, everytime we push on he brake pedal the fuse blows? What could be the problem?

It sounds like you have whats called "a short to ground" Breaks operate on whats called an open circut, only when you ppress the pedal does it allow the eectricity to flow hence lighting the rear break hights. You have a pinch wire which is grounding the system. Each time you press the pedal it sends the current to that ground shorting the circut and blowing the fuse. Trace the wires in the trunk as best you can and look for any damaged wires(oinched ,stripped, also check the break light socket .
