i have a 2001 for Expedition and the door lock are not working. I changed the fuse and it worked for about 3 rotations then the fuse blows, it just started doing this yesterday. my wife said that the inside switches got wet during a rain storm. i pulled off the panel and checked all of the connections. i have tried 3 fuses since with the same result.  the expedition has a exterior loking keypad as well. Please advise next step

if control switch got wet,just let it dry out,that is about all you can do unless you go to a salvage yard and get another switch out of one.

Once the switches corrode you will keep blowing fuses until you either remove the corrosion or replace the switch. If you caught it early enough you may be able to clean it up with dielectric grease ( a must have for working on car electrical systems).
