It's the fuse for the engine computer, anyway, don't know what else. But it could be a bad computer, or more likely, a short in the wiring to the computer. Pull off the connector to the computer and start checking wires for melted insulation, or a broken wire. Pull off the negative battery cable and run continuity checks on the power wires to the computer. You may have to pull some of the engine harness apart to check wiring-it can be very tedious-if you can't find any bad wiring, a short, then it may be a shorted computer.

Had similiar problem on a old Austin Alegro 25 years ago.
Starter had worn wire insulation. Used industrial yelow sticker foil on that.
Fuse blow in sane curve highway every time. Car was repainted and wire harness reinstalled unprofessionally previous owner.
Crawled half a day every square mm and yep a litle broke insulation on a positive cable grounding to chassis an blowing the fuse.

SOURCE: fuel pump fuse blowing
replace the fuel pump, it is drawing to much current, this is common when the pump bearings get worn out, also make sure you replace the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank connection, it will be burnt..

I was reading in one of my repair manuals and it says in there that there could be a block where the exhaust gas pressure sensor is. There could be a blocked inlet hose. Or it could be the ECM.

Remember that when you THINK the AC's off,it's really not.Almost all cars have the AC compressor actuate every time you set the dial to `defrost' or `mix' positions.
On a TAURUS there are only two positions(maybe three)which DON'T kick the AC on.On some cars,that's the 11 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions on the selector.
SO...........the odds are that the compressor magnetic clutch or wiring to it has shorted.Because you really have power going there even when you think you don't. (:^) don-ohio
