One of the tail light bulbs can be shorted internally.  Replace the tail light bulbs first.  Try this cheap fix first.

SOURCE: keep blowing fuse for rear taillights and dashboard lights

Sounds like loose wires. Had a similar problem with my 03 Durango. Kept blowing fuses when I put them in. Came to find out my trailer wiring harness had fried and was shorting out.

Probably your compressor for the air suspension. You can put a 12 volt light bulb in the circuit in place of the fuse while you diagnose the problem.

Here's the circuit.

2b94f90.gif Inspection and Verification

  1. Verify the vehicle owner's original concern by operating the vehicle to duplicate the condition.
  1. Inspect to determine if one of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:

    Mechanical Electrical
    • Shock absorber failure
    • Leak from air line(s)
    • Leak from air spring(s)
    • Ruptured air spring(s)
    • Height sensor damaged
    • Height sensor off ball studs
    · Open Fuses:
    • Town Car
      • Power Distribution Box Fuse U (30A MAXI)
      • Instrument Panel Fuse Panel Number 1 (15A)
    • Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis
      • Power Distribution Box Fuse AIR SUSPN PUMP (30A MAXI)
      • Instrument Panel Fuse Panel Number 1 (15A)
    • Loose Connectors
    • Corroded Connectors

You need a dealer tester for this check

AUTO TEST DIAGNOSTICS At the beginning of the automatic portion of the test, the control module checks for defective control module (DTC 70), for unstable battery voltage (DTC 80), then for shorted or open conditions that would create DTCs 39 through 46, and 68 through 71. If shorts or opens are detected, the automatic portion of the test is ended and a DTC 13 (Auto Test Failed) will be displayed on the SUPER STAR II tester. If no shorts or opens are detected, the automatic portion of the test continues. The control module attempts to raise and lower the vehicle to verify that all three air suspension height sensor states (trim, high, and low) can be reached. A properly functioning vehicle will be at trim height at the end of the Auto Test. If all three states are not reached, the Auto Test will end and again a DTC 13 will be displayed. A DTC 12 will be displayed at the end of the Auto Test only if everything checked to this point is functional. After the DTC 12 (or DTC 13) is displayed, the control module is ready to check for manual inputs. The manual inputs check the steering sensor and the door courtesy lamp switch circuits. During the manual test, the module continually monitors the door Circuit 159 or 24 and the steering sensor Circuits 633 and 634 Town Car, Circuits 834 and 835 Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis for activity. To pass the manual test the control module must detect that all four doors have been opened and closed, and that the steering wheel has been turned at least 1/4 turn in each direction. After the manual test, the STAR tester button must be toggled, or the control module will continue to monitor the manual test inputs indefinitely. Either a DTC 11 (Air Suspension OK) or other DTCs will be displayed at this time. After the Auto/Manual tests, the DTCs will be displayed automatically. Each DTC detected will be displayed for about 15 seconds. The code display will continue until all DTCs have been displayed. The display will repeat the DTC until the STAR test button is released (up). After all DTCs are written down, the pressed tester button may be released. DO NOT disconnect or turn OFF the tester. The tester is ready to enter the Functional Test.
