Has the second fuse blown? If not AND it's the same amperage as the original fuse just keep an eye on it. Looks like you've made a few upgrades to your Lincoln. Are the taillight bulbs the original style and number? If not, the bulbs may be pulling too much power through the circuit and causing the fuse to blow. Nice looking car, BTW!! HTH. -Jim

You're welcome. Glad to help. Sorry that you got the ticket anyway! That stinks!! I'd just keep an eye on it for now. Sometimes, not very often, but sometimes a fuse will blow for no apparent reason. They can be finicky. But if it does blow again, time to start checking wires for damage. HTH. -Jim


The fuses weren't blown That's why I'm stuck. Bulbs are fine
