Question about Cars & Trucks
Keeps blowing the fuse
Are you connecting the power pack correctly. When jump starting the red power lead goes on the positive battery terminal (+ to + ) and the black lead goes on the engine (- to -) not the battery as this stops a power surge that can destroy the ECM. Blowing fuses indicates that you may be connecting black to red and this amounts to a dead short which will blow fuses.

Something is drawing too much power and you will have to find out which it is. When the head job was done they may have gotten a wire pinched in the block or some thing. You would have to be quite mknowledgable in vehicle electronics to find it. I would suggest that you take it back to the shop or guy that done the head job for you to correct.

Try putting a bigger amp fuse like 20. If it is still blowing it, there is a short somewhere in the circuit that is allowing excessive amps to through that circuit. Have a mech check that out.

SOURCE: keep blowing park fuse
The headlamp switch is at fault it seems. Best thing to do is to remove it and check for shorts in the wiring that connects to it before installing a new one. It could be the switch that just worn out but checking the wiring is best to do to safeguard your purchase. If you happen to instal a new one and the same thing happens again you can not return electrical parts for this reason. They been installed and no one else would want to buy it

The fuse blows when there is a short circuit in the system or an overload of current going to the conductor.
In the your case, the fuse blows up because of the fuel pump motor that is not working properly. The motor might have been stuck and still receiving current from the source, thus overheating your wire/cable and before everything else, blows your fuse as a safety precaution before big damage can happen.
Better check the fuel pump and the harness going to it!
Thanks for using Fixya!

SOURCE: ignition fuse keeps blowing out
Check your underdash wiring. At times wires can come lose and your ignition wire could be touching ground. Ignition wire in the explorer should be Pink and/or Pink/white. If you've had any aftermarket components installed in the vehicle, check all the connections to ensure nothing has come loose. Check for freyed wires or wires that could be cut by the metal under the dash. Ford uses almost razor-like metal in their dash boards so be cautious with your hands in there.
