Electrical problem
1999 Mercury Villager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 166000 miles

The fuse for the Power windows, Power Lock, Sun roof, Power seats and Power mirrors burned. I changed it an it worked. I used the power lock to open all the doors and next time I wanted to use the poer lock to lock the car the fuse was burned again. I checked in the front doors if there was a wired bad or touching the frame somehow but I could not find any sign of a bad wire. I can hear a clicking behind the steering wheel when I hit the power lock switch. Check it out and I seems to come from the SEC box. I guess thats what it is.

Your going to have to use the " process of elimination here to find which system on this particular fuse is the culprit. With a new fuse in place, try each system on that circuit one at a time until the fuse blows. When you determine what is causing the fuse to blow, we can go from there.

It is definitely the power lock circuit. All the other ones work just fine.

Does it blow the fuse instantly when you replace it, or is it when you activate a window? If the fuse blows only when you activate, is it a particular window or "any window?

When I replace the fuse and use the power windows the fuse does not blow. It is only when I unlock/lock the doors that the fuse blows out, then I am not able to use the windows, sunroof, etc.

One of your power lock solenoids may be shorted. Does the fuse blow even if the passenger door is actuated from the passenger side?

Yes, I thought by avoiding using the locks, I would make sure that the fuse did not blow again until I figured the power locks thing out. It blew anyway, today. There was a funny smell in the car like burning. It may have been the fuse going out. Where are the solanoids located?

They are inside the doors below the latch.
