Question about 1986 Ford Econoline
Removed all running lights but still blows fuses. Replaced light pull on switch, still blows 15 fuse instantly. 12 volts is applied when engine is started, but when switch pulled, POP goes the fuse.
The headlight switch has a rheostat built into it to dim your dash lights, it may have shorted out. As soon as you turn on the switch this rheostat comes into play and is probably whats blowing the fuse. I think if you replace the headlight switch, it will solve your problems.
