Question about 1995 Ford Mustang

Fuse keeps blowing

I have a 1995 mustang GT conv. and the clock, radio, speedometer, and dome lights were not working I found out that the #8 fuse was blown. I replaced it with the same 10 amp fuse and it blew immediately again once i started the car. Does anybody have any possible explanations or things I could check to see what is causing this?

Well there are alot of things on this fuse that could cause this concern. Door opening switches,clock,radio,all the interior lamps but the most common areas would be the vanity mirrors or the door opening switches. The LG/Y wire is the wire on these that you are concerned with.
The vanity mirrors would be my first area I would look at. Remove them and trace the LG/Y wire back and see if it is pinched or scrapped so that a bare wire is touching metal. If you see nothing there then remove the door switches on the a pillars in the door opening and check the same wire.

I have a 1995 ford econoline that keeps blowing #8 15amp fuse. dome lights. door chime and radio don't work any longer. They were working fine a couple of days ago. The thing is the radio isnt even on that...


Fuse 8 feeds power to a whole bunch of things including the radio. Depending upon the configuration of your Econoline a defect in any of the subcircuits could be the source of recurrent fuse failure.

2002 Lancer CE dome light fuse location


The dome light feed comes from the ETACS ECU. There are four fused inputs: 7.5A multipurpose fuse 2, 15A multipurpose fuse 14 and, in the enngine compartment relay box, 10A DEDICATED fuses 17 and 18. One of these four should apply to the dome light

2000 A6 BLOWS #25 FUSE


A/C keeps blowing the fuse after I got it recharged. Its the R-12 system and it seemed to be ok before but now I got it recharged and replaced the blower motor in the front and now as soon as I turn it on it blows the fuse. I replaced the 3 fuse black and even rewired the fuses then took off the connectors tot he rotary switch and replaced those but it still blows the fuse. Any suggestions?

Could I have messed something up on installing the blower motor. __________________

CLock, radio, dome lights, speedometer, keyless entry dont work


Check fuse 8 (10 amp fuse) in the under dash fuse panel. Make sure you have voltage to it on both sides of the fuse.This fuse feeds all of the items you listed.

Just recently my 98 Toyota Corrolla has started blowing a fuse.


I would remove the dome light, and disconnect the wiring connector, and then put in another fuse. If it does not blow, I would think that the dome light switch is shorted to ground.

Electrical. alternator fuse link keeps blowing


The wiring harness coming from the solonoid/power distribution has one small guage wire splitting into three different medium guage wires. I have ran into this problem quite often on mustangs, and what I have found that works is take the split out of it, and run all three wires with fusible links added to them straight from the solonoid
