Question about 1993 Ford Explorer Limited
To blow a 60 amp fuse the short must be along a rather heavy wire, otherwise the wire would burn. The starter would not be the problem because it draws much more than 60 amps. If it blows in the run position the solenoid is also not suspect as that is only powered when the start is selected. Try follow the harness from the ignition switch down the column and through the firewall to the fuse box. Check where the harness goes through the firewall and any other metal parts, looking for damaged grommets and wires chaffed on bare metal. Disconnect the alternator wires as well and see if the fuse still blows. To save yourself the cost of all those fuses, make up a test light using an old headlight bulb (it must be a big bulb) and connect that in the place of the fuse. If it burns bright you have a short, if it is dull you are drawing a low current which is what you want to see.
