    if i have a short in the black and white wire coming from the altenator to the fuse labeled "meter" will it cause the problem, and can i run a wire directly from that fuse panel to the altenator

    Ford electrical problems are hard to figure out. so hard they invented a test. it's called the wiggle test. just in case something came lose it wight have wiggled it self in/out of working order. thus fords wiggle test. honestly i need more information befor i can give you more advice.

    you can replace the fuses again. but when they keep going it means that theres to high of a current level in the system. you altornator may have a short alowing to much to current into the system. there may be a short some were else.

    it might not be those wires, im thinking it might be the alternator it self. the altornator can have a short this will give you high current thus blowing the fuse.



    and yes you can but you shouldn't not by pass any fuse if you do so.

My wipers stopped working in my 93 escort.


Sounds like a relay has blown. The relay is located in the fuse box under the dash or in the engine compartment. Both the fuse boxes should be labeled so you can locate it. If not, the owners manual should have a diagram for the fuse box under the dash. If its not the relay. the wiper motor needs to be replaced

I was changing oil on my 99 escort zx2 and my wrench touched the back of the alternator and blew the main 100 amp fuse. I replaced it and now the temp guage, and fuel guage do not work and the wipers will...


Have you checked the rest of the fuses? Both under the hood and under the dash. It sounds like you may have also blown the wiper switch. The 'gauge' fuse is suspect, make sure you check it as well. FYI, the oil filter in these cars are hand tighten only.

My alternator fuse blew when i replaced it my gas and my hot cold


you may have blew the whole cluster but not likely,
check the fuses to all accessories and guages. check your field wire on the altenator and make
sure it is hooked up correctly on the altenator.
