1993 ford taurus the fuse for my coil keeps blowing out.
The fuse for my coil keeps blowing out. i just replaced the coil and now i keep blowing fuses. and as u know this stales ur car out and will not start without the fuse. I have replaced the fuse a 100 times but now its just blowing them without even starting. it seems to me that when i went over a big bump it shorted but what would cause that?

Some of those trucks had a heater coil in the fuel filter bowl. It would short out and blow the fuse . Try unplugging the wire just behind the bowl ,and replace the fuse again. that may fix the problem.
use the process of elimination, disconnect both headlights at the bulb and put another fuse in it and see if it blows. if the fuse blows without the headlights plugged in then its the wiring to the bulbs. if the fuse doesn't blow while the headlights aren't plugged in try plugging the lights in one at a time to see which headlight or socket is shorted. possibly corrosion at body to ground connections near the headlights, you may not see the corrosion, remove the ground wires and sand those ground wires down..
your lights are grounding out some where you will have to check for a dead short in the wiring use a volt meter in the resitance mode and track through you power side of the lights untill you find your dead short, start at the back and work your way to the fuse box pull the fuse and follow the wire. there is a short in it it will just take some time going through look for worn coating, cracks, or melted.
good luck & and happy hunting
it sounds like who ever hooked up the remote starter may have crossed wires I would recommend takeing it back to who installed the remote starter and have them look to make sure something is not crossed in the system
