ELECTRIC SHOCK IN THE FUSE BOX

1990 Lincoln Town Car

Hi

My name is : Ayman
from : Saudi Arabia

Note: my english not very good

the problem is :

There is an electric Shock in the fuse box in block No. 17. So that the fuse is burning when placed

I traced the wiring of the block 17 and found one of the parties is heading towards the key lamps

And the other is a 2-wire, one tends to the lamps switch and the other is moving towards mirrors key control

Some of my experiences

1 - When I remove the lamp fuse from The engine compartment fuse box >> the shock go away

2 - When I cut the wire that heading from block 17 to mirrors control key >> the shock go away
