My turn signals keep blowing the fuse. It mainly happens at start up, example, I can change it and it will work til I cut off the engine then when I turn it back on the fuse blows. What else is on this...

you may have to check the wiring, see if your wires are touching any grounds under the hood. if any exposing wires tape them up with electrical tape. the positive wire in the wire loom may be exposed to a ground under the hood and may be the reason why it is blowing out.

Interior lights will not go off

The interior lights are controlled by 2 fuses (accessory fuses , 1 in the kick panel under the dash and the other in the fuse box under the hood) , by door and trunk switches (located in the corner of the doors, (it depressed when a door is open) as well as a switch in the hood. try the following steps in the proceeding order

1.) try changing the hood light switch to off , there should be 3 settings (door, off, on) switch it to off , if its set to on it will remain on.

If the above fails chances are one of the door switch is shorting,

2.) open each door , 1 at a time , locate the switch the door pushes, Its on the car body and when the door closes it pushes in the switch. press each switch 1 at a time to find the shorting switch. once found , check that the door is closing properly and adjust toe lock by turning the screws and sliding it in until it works properly.

If the above fails chances are you have an electrical harness failure.

3.) pop the hood, locate the fuse box, locate the acc / accessory fues by using the diagram on the fuse box cover. remove the fuse. This will turn off all the accessory electrical so it wont drain your battery. Get the vehicle to a garage as soon as you could. Alternatively you can remove the fuse from the kickpanel under the dash. (here is a diagram on the cover).

In the unlikely case you cant locate the fuse, remove the negative battery pole, This will turn off all car electrical so your battery wont drain giving you enough time to get to a garage. Chances are it involves harness rewiring / relay failure which will need tracing and replacing and should always be done by a professional. Your vehicle is controlled by a computer and if the wires are shorted this can damage the cars cpu which will cost a lot to repair. So follow the above advice and if steps 1 and 2 fail will 3 is the best choice for you as well as a local garage.

check your fuses. I expect its one of you main uses located under he hood. You also have another fuse box under the dash in the drivers side footwell. Check all the fuses and if any are broken and replace if necessary. Further electrical problems will likely need to be diagnosed by a shop.

1999 Meercury Sable. No electric to fuel pump

There are 2 fuses and a relay involved in this circuit but the lines that run power to the pump run partially exposed under the vehicle as well. Check the Interior Fuse, check the Fuse in the box under the hood and check to make sure you have voltage at the fuse under the hood. If these are good check for voltage on the wires going to the fuel pump at the fuel pump itself. You can do this with a multimeter and thumb tack. Use the thumb tack to puncture the insulation in the wires and test for voltage. If you don't have voltage there, start working your way back 12" at a time until you find the point where you have voltage to isolate the area of the break.

A battery was hooked up backwards in car we now have no dash ac etc is there a fuse????

yes there are several fuses including a large amperage fuse in the outside fuse box probably 50 or 100 amp, take your time and carefully check all the fuses inside the pass compartment and under the hood ,youll probably find at least 3-5 fuses blow.

Most probably...a loose electrical connection. Since you mentioned that the electrical power and the engine got cut off and after sitting for a brief of time, the van cranked back up. You need to check the wiring to see if there's any loose connection.

Here, I provided you the link where you can download the wiring diagram for your 2000 Ford Windstar:

This diagram (manual) will help you trace the problem.

Have a great day!
