Question about 1987 Ford Mustang
When fuse #5 is in the car starts in acc and the starter remains engaged until you disconnect the neutral safety switch wire. With fuse #5 removed the car starts normally however the backup lights don't work. switch #5 is of course the backup and turn signal fuse. also is the four way flasher the same as the turn signal flasher switch on the fuse box ?
First problem sounds like your neutral safety switch is grounding out on something, maybe and exposed wire arching across making it complete the curcuit, or could be the same problem happening at the starter on the engine. Disconnect your battery and put the fuse back in the car, leave the fuse box alone unless theres a fuse blown and use the disconnected battery as a way to turn on and off the power while working on the car. Using the fusebox to turn on and off power is only going to confuse you more and give you a sore back. As for the 4 way flasher question, most cars have a separate fuse thats round and silver just like the turn signal fuse that work the 4 ways, its more like a fused relay.
