Can you tell us what fuse # 29 controls/powers?

i believe it has something to do with the digital transmission range sensor . we were told to replace the starter, we did, had no problems for about a week, and then, same problems again. power but no crank and that fuse is blown.

I have a 2003 explorer, although it is currently out of town being used by another driver. In the owner's manual there is a diagram of the fuse box and it should indicate what the fuse controls. That is the first piece of info you need.

it is the dtr sensor

OK. I verified it was the DTR. The problem could be just about anywhere within the electrical system pertaining to the starter, even the ignition switch. Does starting the vehicle blow the fuse at every attempt? Or only sometimes? Begin visually checking all the electrical connections and grounds for a short circuit. The DTR is bolted onto the side of the tranny, that could be the problem and it is a 30 to forty dollar part. make sure all electrical connections are good and no corosion has form at any part. To add a little info, I learned one winter if you have a completely dead battery or if the battery is removed from the vehicle you cannot shift the tranny out of park if there is no power to the DTR. A blown fuse means something is supplying too much resistance at a point, meaning a short or worn defective part.
