Fuse keeps popping for the running light. With the fuse out the speakers are making noise when we turn the headlights on and off and even a little with the brake pedal. With larger fuse in it the headlight switch turns the radio off when you turn the headlights on and turns it on when the headlights are off.

Re: Electrical problem 2000 wrangler.
That means 1 of 2 things'
wrong size fuse, you never stated amps. or the color of the ATC fuse.
the correct fuse blows with any short, ending possible fire.
sounds like you have gross electical issues.
even bad battery terminals. clean them.
try a fresh charged battery
use a voltmeter and measure voltage yet.
at the battery and those things that fail?
that speaker noise is alternator whining noise, caused buy shorted diodes in same.
you do know alternator can fail in many a way.
open diodes, and 1/3 loss of power
shorted diodes turns alternator in to a huge noise generator
over charges battery
to name a few and bad bearings,

a wire has to be shorting out the fuse, check all wires and make sure no metal is showing or frayed. If so wrap the wire that is showing with electrical tape to make sure no metal is touching any other wire, this would cause the short, and would pop the fuse. You may want to try a fuse with a higher breaking point as well, i.e. a 20 amp fuse.
You have not supplied sufficient information so here is one possibility.
If you replace a fuse you must use one that is the correct amperage for the circuit.
Check your owner's manual for the correct amperage fuse for the circuit concerned and make doubly sure the correct one is installed.
If it is the correct amperage for the circuit please supply more information on the problem including which fuse keeps blowing:
1. Is the fuse popping immediately you replace it in the fuse panel and switch power to the circuit or only after a period of time of operating the vehicle? For example, if it is a lighting fuse, does the new fuse blow immediately you switch on the light concerned?
2. What is the function on the vehicle that has the power cut when the fuse blows?
3. Has there been any work carried out on any part of the electrical system or on electrical components of your vehicle prior to this problem arising? If so what was done?
That or the wiring to it is shorted at some point. Remove the connection at the center back of the socket and replace the fuse--if ok, replace or repair the socket. If still blows fuse, check the wire you removed for damage near any metal object.
Check the Inside Fuse Box with a Flashlight for Blown Fuses. Then Check the Fuse Relay Box Under the Hood. Check the Fuses in that one to, If the Fuses are all good, Locate the Illumination, and Brake. Replace these Relays. That should get them back on, Let me know!

You have a Short somewhere in the Lines. Get a Voltometer from any auto parts Store and Start with the Running lights seeing as U can get to them Easier. The dash lights are on the Same fuse so start with the Easiest First. Message me back!
