Unplug the radio and see if it still blows the fuse. Try to isolate it to the lighting circuit or the radio. You have a bad short somewhere. Trying higher rated fuses may cause your wiring to burn up.

    This did not help. I tried using a 5 watt fuse, with just the radio and with Just the door panel lights and it does the same. I cannot find an owners manual or repair manual for my particular vehicle, what to do?

You have to first check for power to the horns. Remove the plastic panel under the hood on top of the radiator support. The horns will be there on the side of the radiator support. Hook a 12V test light or volt meter to them and press the horn button and see if you have power there. If you do its a bad horn if you don't then check fuse no. 5 (15amp) in the engine compartment fuse panel. If it is good then the next step is to eliminate the relay also located in the engine compartment fuse box. Basically how it works is the no. 5 fuse feeds both sides of the relay. You have a switch side on the relay that feeds the horns and a coil side which when energized by the horn button creates a magnetic field which closes the switch in the relay and blows the horn.
If you have no power to the horn and your fuse is good try swapping the relay with another one in the fuse panel if it still doesn't work then go to the connector located at the blower motor under the hood,there will be 2 connectors that run on top of the blower motor,the one you want is the bottom one of the 2. It will be a square 12 pin connector. Find the dark blue wire there and ground it if horn blows then it will be the clock-spring or the horn button itself.

SOURCE: Blows fuses when parking lights are turned on. Headlights work fine even running lights.

If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords

The fuse for these lights sound like it may be blown. Find you fuse panel, your owners manual will tell you exactly which one it is, sometimes it is printed on the panel cover. Replace with the same size fuse.

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses

The quickest way to find a short circuit is by putting a bulb in place of the fuse. Anytime the time the bulb lights there is a load. And if the load is a shorted wire the brightness of the bulb will give you a hint. So while you're at it, finding a 'short' is a quicky...keep your eyes on the bulb. gotcha!

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses

Try checking all the grounds for the radio, over time they can weeken. If that doesn't work, put in a new ground wire with a heavier gauge, that should fix it. It sounds like a ground problem.

Good luck, Daniel
