The wiring diagrams for most models are about 150 pages long and we don't have them, u can buy a used Ford wiring diagram booklet for cheap, but need the year of the truck or car to help u find a used factory electrical troubleshooting guide.

2004 Ford Ranger 10 amp fuse keeps blowing no brake lights,abs, turn signals?


Fuses blow because there is an overload on the system. If the fuse blows when you step on the brakes then there may be a short in the wiring from the brake light switch to the lights, abs module or turn signal switch. If the fuse blows when you turn the key on then there is likely a short in the wiring to the brake light switch. Basically you will need a wiring schematic to check the wires at the switch and at each of the loads. Also verify that the fuse is supposed to be a 10 amp fuse. Hope this helps

My 40 amp main fuse blows every time I plug it in. Cannot find a short or bad connection between the battery and the fuse. Not sure what the problem is.


The short will have to be after the fuse. It would help to have a schematic to help trace the wires. Wire shorts are hard to find. See if you can get a manual for the car before you start.
Does it blow the fuse even with the key turned off? If so it could be the cigar lighter wiring.
Send us the make & model of the car and we might be able to find a schematic.
Hope this helps.

Radio fuse keeps blowing


You have a short somewhere. You'll need to remove the system and test to figure out where the short is. It could be in the unit or in one of the wires leading to the unit.

#11 fuse on 01 lincoln ls goes to


Hi Aaron, I'm glad to help!

Aaron, anytime a fuse blows in any circuit its because that CIRCUIT has a dead short to ground somewhere in that circuit. You need to find out everything that fuse 11 goes too. Once you know all the components that circuit 11 goes to you'll need to unplug one component at a time until the fuse does not blow and replace that component (PART). NOTE: If after checking each part one at a time and the fuse still blows, then its time to check the wiring going to each individual component because it is shorting out somewhere against a metal object. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Aaron.

Headlight fuses keep blowing


You have a short circuit somewhere in the wiring. Either a cut or bare wire. If not, the headlamp is causing the short. Last resort, use a higher amp fuse (but this may compromise wiring system).

Blinker fuse keeps blowing? What could be the issue to why it is happening? A short somewhere? I place a new fuse in and it works for a small amoutn of time then the fuse blows.


It could be a short or a break in the line. You might need to change the fuse housing. You will meed a wirinf schematic or voltage meter to test the wires. You need to find which wire is bad and replace it. It may lead to other problems. Just follow ther wires from the fuse housing to the place it goes. When you find it, replace the wire and it shouldn't blow the fuse anymore. If you took this in, it would probably cost a few hndred dollars to fix. If you have a question, let me know. I am here to help. Thank you for using FixYa.

My ecm fuse keeps blowing? Just drive a little agressive not 5 min. have changed coil wire,coil,cap&roter?with an over size fuse it will miss & lose power after 5 min. not sure what check next....


You have a short somewhere in the wiring. You will either have to get a wiring schematic, multimeter and chase down every wiring circuit to find the ground fault, or take it into a shop that knows vehicle electronics.

By the way, replacing a factory fuse with fuse of higher amperage is a very bad idea. You are bypassing the purpose of the fuse: The protection of much more expensive electronics. They are designed to melt before the destructive amperage levels that the electronic components can handle have been reached.

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
