2005 merc grand marquis Headlights keep blowing a fuse


Does your Grand Marquis have head lamps with auto lamps ? Which fuse keeps blowing ? Could be a shorted LCM - lighting control module ?

Lighting Control Module (LCM)
The LCM eliminates the electronic interference and heat associated with the thermoelectric devices used previously. The LCM is a microprocessor-based module that controls several vehicle subsystems. It responds to electrical input signals from various switches, sensors, and external modules..

Why aren't parking lights working?


Park lamp fuse 20amp located in the under hood fuse box .DRL control module
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) Control Module
Right of the steering column, behind the IP
Park, Sidemarker, Tail and License Lamps
Voltage is applied continuously to the PARK fuse to the headlamp and the instrument panel (IP) lamp dimmer switch through CKT 1340.
When the headlamp and the (IP) lamp dimmer switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, voltage is applied to CKT 9 thus activating the following lamps:
• The park lamps
• The side marker lamps
• The tail lamps
• The license lamps
The park/turn lamps are the only lamps that do not activate yet receive a current from CKT 9. The park/turn lamps do not activate because the voltage drop across the front side marker lamps is much higher than that across the turn lamp filaments Step

How to fix the parking lights staying on after the car is turned off


Park, marker and tail lamps inoperative.
The scan tool is connected. Turn the head lamp switch to the Park position, and observe the park lamp input on the scan tool. Is the input ON? If yes, faulty IPFB. If no, disconnect the headlamp connector. Connect a fused jumper between circuit 240 and circuit 9. Does the input on the scan tool change to ON? If yes, faulty connections or headlamp switch. If no, open circuit 9 between the headlamp switch and IPFB.- instrument panel fuse box !

Repeatedly blows fuse to dash lights and tail lights. I have replaced the multifunction switch and the 20 pin plug to the mfs.


I chose an SE model but all models should be basically the same. If the fuse does not blow with the headlamp switch off, that could mean there is a short somewhere on the BLK/YEL wire. Check pin 9 for a short. The BLK/YEL wire feeds the instrument cluster, the remote keyless entry module, the marker lamps, the park lamp filaments, and the license lamp. Try removing all rear lamps to eliminate them as a source of the short. If you can disconnect the cluster and the remote keyless entry module, check them. If no short is found, turn on the park lamps and reconnect/reinstall items until you find what's wrong.

Head lamp wont work


Try replacing bulbs they could have both gone at the same time,I think it takes a 9006 bulb. You could check by pluging low beam plug into high beam bulb if it works the low beam bulbs are gone

Fuse number 6&9 keep blowing under the hood.


No.6 feeds the park lamp relay and No.9 feeds the fog lamp relay and the daytime running lamp resistor.
They are basically 2 seperate circuits so I would suspect you either have 2 seperate problems or you have an add on accessory like maybe a anti-theft system that ties into both systems?
