The fuse that controls the headlights and dashboard lights keeps popping on my 99 Mercury Cougar, 110000 miles. An after market stereo was installed (poorly) by the previous owner. I have taped up all the exposed wires, but it still does this. There seems to be no set pattern. It can pop after 2 seconds or take weeks. The last time it was fine for two months and I thougth I had it fixed. Any suggestions?

I have the same problem in my 84 Grand Marquis. I believe it has something to do with the way ford/mercury series their fuses. This is the only car ive owned that has this problem.

The car has a short, if you don't know how to trace shorts, either scrap the car or take it to a qualified guy!

Have you guys unplugged the connector to the light switch and looked at it? Try it!
