What would cause a 2005 ford explorer sports trac to not have turn signals or brake lights and it blows fuses when we put them in.

You have a shorted wiring harness, check at the rear of the vehicle undercarriage first for a damaged wiring harness that is cut or worn through on frame or other metal surface. There is no magic fix for shorted wiring, just hard work and close examination.

Using a simple ohm meter(multimeter meter set on ohms/resistance.) and the harness disconnected check between
every wire connection for a reading. If you get a reading between any two wires, that is your short, on those two wires. If it, the wire, is grounded instead of shorted, place one lead on a good metal ground and tough the other to each wore connection one at a time. Any meter reading is that is grounded.

I have a 1996 Lincoln town car. The power windows, break lights, wipers, blinkers, radio, power locks and blower are not working. We replaced the light control module, but that didnt work. Any suggestions...

Sounds like you lost a ground in the dashboard. Not sure where but I would try shorting the ground from any of these apparatuses to check it. If they work when shorted then it's a bad ground. At that point you can either search, find and correct bad ground or simply make your ground short permanent.

I have a Ford Festiva and my indicator fuse keeps blowing out, anyone know what this problem would be?

Obvious short circuit probably caused by spring contact at base of bulb. bulb holder deformed or bent. they still use this design in many trailer lights.

2002 jeep liberty cmp sensor bank 2 short to ground

That one is pretty self-explanitory. You need to find where the Bank 2 Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) circuit is shorted to ground and repair the short.

After replacing the engine, the passenger side bank has no spark, why is this? Can you tell me some options . Thank you.

There are two separate circuits for your ignition coils. Fuse 18 supplies power for the EVEN numbered coils and fuse 19 provides power for the ODD numbered coils. The right bank of cylinders are number 1-3-5 and the left bank of cylinders are 2-4-6. If the fuse is blown, you need to find out WHY. It could be that the wire between the coils and the fuse is shorted to ground or it could be a shorted/defective coil. An open ground circuit on one side will also make one complete bank inoperable.

Since you just changed the engine I would first check to make sure that you got your grounds connected. The coils ground at G-107 and G-108. Ground G-107 is located toward the rear of the cylinder head directly above the starter. G-108 is located near the front of the other cylinder head/block area.

If you find the fuse blown, I would recommend pulling the fuse out and disconnecting all of the coils on that bank and checking for continuity to ground on the PINK/BLACK wires at the coil connectors. If there is continuity to ground, then you must trace the circuit beween the coils and the fuse block to find out where it is shorted.

If there is no continuity to ground, then you should check the resistance of the coils. Check the resistance between the two coil connector pins. If you find one coil with considerably less resistance than the others, this is your problem-child. Normal resistance should be around 11 or 12 Ohms.

If no difference can be seen by checking resistance between each of the coil pins, then also check for continuity between the coil pins and ground. There should be no continuity. If you find a coil that has continuity between either of its two connector pins and ground, then THIS is your problem.

Ford focus will not start - ticking over like normal but no fire up. Put on diagnostic and coming up with PO232 Fuel pump secondary circuit - any ideas what to do next ?

you can try this:
It is possible with a P0232 for the fuel pump to be running continuously, even with the ignition off. If that's the case and you can hear the fuel pump running, you may be able to disregard some of the following checks. Turn the KOEO (key on engine off) and wait for a few seconds. This allows the PCM to complete it's fuel pump pre-cycle. Now, using your scan tool (if you have one) observe the FP VOLTAGE FEEDBACK reading in the datastream. This reading indicates what kind of voltage the fuel pump is receiving.
If you don't have access to a scan tool, use a voltmeter to read the FP voltage at the fuel tank. If your reading shows any voltage at all present to the fuel pump with KOEO (or if you can hear the pump running), remove the FP relay. If the voltage remains, or the fuel pump continues to run, then there is a short to voltage on the FP voltage supply circuit or on the feedback circuit. Repair as necessary. If the voltage disappears (or the pump quits running) with the FP relay removed then try replacing the relay with a spare one. Upon reinstalling the spare relay, if the voltage disappears, the relay was faulty due to a short. If, though, after replacing the relay voltage is still present, suspect that the PCM FP relay control circuit is shorted to ground.
Check for a short to ground on the PCM FP relay control (ground driver) circuit by removing the FP relay and ohm between a good ground and the PCM FP relay control. There should be no continuity to ground with KOEO (after the FP pre-cycle is completed). If there is continuity to ground the wire is shorted. Find the short to ground and repair as necessary. If you can find no physical short, It may be necessary to snip the FP relay control wire close to the PCM connector where it will be easy to repair and check for continuity to ground with KOEO coming OUT of the PCM. If there is no continuity the wire is shorted in the harness. But if continuity exists, the driver may be internally shorted to ground and the PCM may require replacement.

FLASHING AIRBAG. Code 51 What's this ?

Fault Code 51 - Diagnostic Monitor Internal Thermal Fuse - Open Due to Intermittent Short To Ground

This means that an intermittent short to ground exists in the air bag system. The diagnostic monitor will eventually have to be replaced but only after a visual inspection leads to the repair of a short to ground in the wiring harness.

The following service tips may help you to find intermittent shorts to ground:
Inspect wiring and harness in the areas where they pass through or are located next to metal components (i.e. engine compartment bulkhead, body sheet metal, component mounting brackets, etc.).

I have code 51 flashing. Where is the air bag diagnostic module located?

Hi, the code 51 flashing means that the internal fuse is blown and the short to ground is no longer present. If the short to ground returns, the code will change to 13 (air back circuit shorted to ground) or 14 (primary crash sensor circuit shorted to ground), but it will only flash 13 or 14 when the short is present. If the code remains 51, then first find and repair short before replacing the diagnostic monitor (what people call air bag module).
Take care

Heater fan C/B tripped twice in 2 weeks.CAMRY 91.

Usually there is a short in the system to ground and checking the wire harness at each component from the plugs is the best way to find if you are shorted to ground. If the harness does not show a short when you apply a meter to it, check each component with a meter through the prongs at the plug for a short. Don't forget the switch itself. Turning it through all of it's speeds. I am confident you will find the source.
