Re: Electrical issue

Yes it keeps popping #8. Which direction should I head? any common pinch point that may be shorting it out?

Re: Electrical issue

I know on my obs I had higher wattage head light bulbs that would burn out the switch itself. They were pulling more amps and creating much more heat. the back of the plug was turning to burn brown from grey. As for the Spedo I had the same from the connector on the rear end getting full of mud. took it apart and cleaned it. worked perfect after that.

I don't see any common pinch points in the circuit. It's a short as it blows the fuse. The circuit is hot all times (ign off). It feeds from the under hood fuse box. Should be 15 amp fuse, 95-96 anyway. Here's whats on the fuse: Courtesy lamps (doors and jab switches) Underhood light, power mirrors, Vanity mirrors(i'm guessing this was an option on the visor mirror--wire from the roof might rub) Speedo memory, warning chime, keyless entry, Dome light (feeds thru head light switch) If the truck is an XLT the rear cargo light on the cab roof is part of the courtesy lamps. I'd look for chafed wires where I could. If none found, I'd disconnect everything on the circuit one by one to find the short. You also could rig a 15 amp circuit breaker and substitue it for the #8 fuse. That will give you more time to run it down as the breaker cycles without damage to the wiring. Hope that helps.
