To increase the amperage or welding current you have to change the voltage setting. Higher voltage =more amps available . Check also the wire feed or rod size as this has a lot to do with the amps required.

Which fuses go where and for what on a 2000 lincoin ls


You have to have your owners manual on a Ford to tell what goes where. They were not smart enough to print it on the cover like Chevrolet and Chrysler does. You might be able to find and image by Googling it though.

The first thing is that this car has an auto shut down, if it sees any lights on it shuts them down after a while, this is why they are shutting off, i think you are correct with the door switch, the most common one is the driverdoor switch, its a small push type switch on the latch asm as you know, i would start with the driverside door, i would almost bet thats the bad one, as afr as the headlight switch try unplugging it and see if light goes out but some models operate throught the switch but most dont so if its the dimmer switch then the light should go out when disconnected. good day.
