Please check the brake light wiring there must be somewhere where the live wire is touching the body (earth -) and thus the blowing of the fuses.
Since the plug in had melted so must have the wires insulation top melted somewhere and its now shorting.
Hope this helps.

GEAR SHIFT STUCK IN PARK HAVE NO BRAKE LIGHTS


check the fuses as if the brake light fuse is blown it won`t allow the shifter to move out of park.it has a shift interlock system so the gear shift won`t accidentally be moved out of park by mistake.

My 1998 lincoln continental airconditioner keeps blowing the fuse. replace the fuse it will run while for a short time then blow the fuse. They have replaced the compressor and switch and it still blows...


Ok If it keeps bloowing the fuse it means that its to much resistance in the system. I would reccomend you to take a look at you're blower motor. Even if it work properly it my be durty or to old so it requires more power to spin and then its over heating the wires and the fuse automatically blows up.
Please don't forget to rate me..thanks!

Start by replacing your brake light bulbs. If it still blows the fuse, them your brake pedal switch. If it still happens then you have a shot circuit in your wiring between your fuse panel and your brake lights.
