A fuse blows when there is too much current drawn thru it. Let's say it is for the radio. If the radio is turned off and the fuse blows immediately then the power wire to the radio has a bare spot somewhere and is touching the metal of the car or the power wire is touching the negative wire. If it blows when you turn it on then the radio has a short inside or a malfunction causing it to draw too much current. Let's say it is for the dome light. If you put the fuse in with the door closed and the dome light is set for DOOR and blows right away then the short is in the wire leading to the door switch or the switch is shorting out, letting + touch the - metal body of the car. The entire body is negative. That is why there is usually only one big thick black wire on the battery for negative. If the fuse blows when the door is opened, then the switch is probably shorting out, or the wires going to the dome light. Generally when the fuse blows when you turn something on, then whatever you are turning on is probably junk, unless it is a stereo that draws too much power for the thickness of the wire, or the stereo is junk.
you have a blown fuse. check every fuse electrically ( with a test lamp) to find which one is blown.. replace it and if it blows again, take the vehicle to a professional for fault location and repair..
This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.
