I just want to be sure so that we don't go barking up the wrong tree. It is also labelled panle fuse.
This fuse is for A/C switch, ashtray illumination, blower witch, clock, lighter illumnations, combination meter, glove box light, hazard switch, O/D main switch, radio and player, rear window defogger switch and rheostat.
There is a short in one of the components or their wiring circuit and this is not going to be easy to handle.
Since shorting only occurs after some time, this could mean a bare wire somewhere is coming into contact with body grounding points and vibrations would result in the circuit getting grounded. Check the wireharness for the dash panel and look out for clamped or bare wireharness.
