Good afternoon everybody,
First thing first. I'm new to the forums and finally after getting the upmost fed up with the car and my friend forcing me to do so. I've finally signed up here to get help.
Right now I'm sporting a 1995 Ford Lincoln Continental. About 6 months ago out of no where there has been one fuse that always just pops. By pop I'm meaninmg you get a fuse, look at it and you see the metal in it snapped in two. It isn't one of the big fuses, but it's the small ones. Like a 10-15Amp one that is about 1/4-1/2 an inch in size. It is always just the ONE fuse that gives up.
It's been taken to many shops and they don't have a single clue, even the Lincoln Dealership in Costa Mesa has no clue. The problem was bad, but then faded away. Now it's coming back and coming back hard. Early this week I bought 10 fuses. Two five packs cost of 6 dollars. And just now today I ran out. -_-
When I say it's getting worse, I mean worse by at times when I try putting the fuse in. Even after the car has been cooled down for a while, it SPARKS. Kind of ironic that I'm putting a fuse in and it sparks then I look just a tad bit up and see a "DIEHARD" battery right next to it.
I'm thinking it's a bare wire touching something, but I have no clue why it's acting up.
Strange Occurances when the fuse pop:
-Was at a light with my left blinker on then *Battery light* = Fuse died
-Chillin at a light this morning and then no reason *battery light* = Fuse died
-Make a right turn to and go up a small bump..can you guess? Yup Battery light = Fuse died
-When down a small bump in the road and *battery light* = Fuse died
Just too many occurances. Any help?
Car is a V8 with a 4.6L if that helps at all. I haven't been straining her, just chillin somewhere or easily cruisin and *battery light.* Haha
Finally fed up,
