If it is earthed to the car, it is possibly to stop static electricity build up...the zap you get when you touch a car.

2003 Ford escape fuse blows in and stuck in park Changed brake pedal switch. But fuse still blows

Suspect short in electrical wiring. If repairs have been performed recently check in those areas first. Remove fuse and connect meter. Have someone observe meter while harness near rear light fixtures are flexed. Check for wiring near exhaust. Check wiring at hatch if lights are installed in rear gate. Possible short in harness.

No joy start disconnecting cable connections see wiring diagram.

Hope this helps.

Where does the upstream passenger side 02 sensor bolt in on the exhaust i found the sensor hanging from the electrical connector busted out the engine its a 1994 ford thunderbird

It should be screwed directly into the exhaust manifold. If you found it hanging, and you do not have a major exhaust leak, then I would say that your O2 sensor is broken. Look for a bung on the manifold and you will have to extract what is left of your old one.

Where is the starter located at on my 1984 cutlass supreme brougham

no engine option stated. gas or diesel?
on the engine.
very near the flywheel teeth
very much attached to the bell housing.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
  2. Raise the car and support it with jack stands.
  3. Remove any starter braces or shields that may be in the way. The exhaust crossover pipe may need to be removed on single exhaust models. Disconnect the wires on the starter if they can be reached.
  4. Remove the two starter motor to engine bolts, and allow the starter to drop down, but not hang on the wires.
  5. Remove the solenoid wires and battery cable and remove the starter.

look here, see those engines and photos
most are lower left side.
left means, sitting in drivers seat.

I have a 1995 nissan pathfinder. i keep have electrical issues. when i first got it two months ago it wouldnt start. replaced battery terminals and it was fine for a while. then the meter fuse would blow...

It sounds like just the one problem. Your tails and the dash illumination lights are all on the one circuit that the fuse keeps blowing. Don't get confused thinking of another main fuse, just focus on this one circuit..
It is very seldom that a short develops at the fuse box, it certainly can happen from corrosion or loose terminals, but it is rare. More likely is a bad wire just like the one you found near the exhaust. Somewhere very likely a wire has had insulation stripped or scraped off, soon as the wire touches metal it will blow the fuse. Were any other wires damaged in that harness for the speed sensor? Or do you see any wires hanging down from under the truck, anywhere going back to the tail lights?
If you did the stereo yourself, were any wires cut going to the dash? I doubt this as the wire for the dash lights would be in a wiring harness that is like a bundle from under the dash up to the instrument cluster. You just have to keep looking for the short.

Looking for oxygen sensor on 2001 malibu were its located

In the exhaust stream, somewhere. Look on both exhaust manifolds (if you have a V6) likely the rear one near firewall. Will have an electrical conn. with one or more wires to it. It will be in the exhaust before the catalytic converter.

I am installing an electric trailer brake controller on my 2008 Ford F- 150 STX pick up truck and I need to know where it plugs in under the dash

Ford's factory supplied brake controller harness end can be found loosely stuffed under the dash, usually just above the driver's right leg. A Ford harness has a rectangular shaped connector.
Simply connect the brake controller harness connector into the vehicle connector. Zip tie the harness wires to another harness to prevent the wiring from hanging down near your feet.
I hope this helps.

What type of clamp is required to secure my exhaust system? I have an 02 2.4 stratus and the exhaust system is hanging low. The rear hanger has slipped out of place and the other hanger near the middle...

You can either buy a new hanger or reattach old one. You can always use a coat hanger as well. You can tighten the exhaust up with a 1 7/8 or 2" muffler clamp. Or even better to have it welded
