96 Lincoln Town Car blown #7 fuse? Sign In

Need a few hints way this fuse is blowing & what down stream can be the problem. This is the fuse box under the driver's side. Have been having problems with controls on steering wheel for the heating system. Is there a connector to disconnect the wiring to the steering column and not cause any problem with the rest of the controls (aka fan blower, Instrument panel lighting etc) Help......

If got something like that, I'd probably end up taking the splice apart, determine which wire, and use a tone generator to find out which component it is since they are all the same dumbass color...LOL Nice of Ford to put all that crap on one fuse...Pirate

As I work fleets ie crown vics, FORD - there was a PIA situation where the trans OD* switch (in the stalk) was prone to short out and take a similar complex circuit down - bad memory.
I have to mention as that would be a starting place for me.

Saw that in a few pickups, where the wires for OD switch in column chafed and (intermittently) using shifter would blow fuse, taking out cluster among other things. Fun stuff.
