Fuse 11 keeps blowing

10

Asked by Jul 27, 2011 at 01:18 PM about the 1997 Ford E-150 STD Econoline

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 4.2 e150 has been having brake light, hazard light, and blinker problems for a while now. The
abs light is flashing, and it won't shift out of park once it is started. The brake light switch is good.
Fuse #11 (main light switch, brake pressure switch, stop switch, RABS, diagnostic) is bad, but
every time I replace it, it blows again. What would be causing this?

short in the wireing,bad ground.check the wires going to tail lights,should be running along inside frame on drivers side,see if you can find a skint or bare wire on frame.

thanks, i checked all the wires and they looked good. It ended up being the switch after all. whoever installed the new one put a plastic washer in the wrong place, so the metal on the switch wasnt making contact with the metal on the pedal. I'm pretty sure it wasnt able to ground and that was the problem
