I got a 93 mercury grand marquee and everytime I go to drive it the fuse to the runing lights and dash and park lights blow


It sounds like you may have a short in the wiring. This can be a real pain sometimes to find. you need to check the wiring to see if you see some wire that has a break in it that could be touching metal that would cause the short. I had a problem with my suv and found a wire at the fuse block that was grounding out my lights. So check this as well. I had to pull the fuse block off to find it. Good luck

My fuse keeps blowinng when i turn on my lights but the headlights ,blake lights and turn signals work but no tail or parking lights


If the fuse blows, you have a dead short to ground somewhere, likely around the tail lights or parking lights. Try this:

Get a box of the correct fuses.
Remove all tail and parking bulbs and put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, try installing each bulb at a time to see which light assembly causes the fuse to blow.
Let's suppose its the RH tail light assembly. Pull it off the car and check for dirt and damaged wiring.

If this is an older vehicle, there may be wiring damage (due to rust) in the harness under the carpets.

Gear lever stuck in park (P)


Question are you putting in the correct size fuse ? Look in the owners Manuel it will tell you what amp fuse goes where. May be as simple as that always make sure you put the same amp fuse back in very important.

My tailights and dashlights won't work because the fuse blows.


it sounds like a short in the park lights.you will have to start by disconnecting headlight switch then install fuse,then check all park light bulbs and there sockets, its gonna be a bad switch or socket, enless theres a wire touching ground ,but start with the switch and checking all sockets. hope this helps.
