confused 2000 Mercury Cougar Door Locks

Hello everyone. I have just been reading some of the older posts about the 2000 Mercury Cougar Door Lock fuse problem. My fuse blew a couple of days ago, replaced, blew, replaced and blew again. I have read that some people have tried using a 30 amp fuse instead of a 20 amp. My only concern is will my car catch on fire? Any other suggestions?

The wiring can catch on fire. Does it blow immediately? There could be a short anywhere in the circuit. Possibly in the door jam where the wires go through.

The fuse blows as soon as I press the power door lock inside the car, followed by clicking in the passenger door.

There has to be a short to ground or one of the actuators is defective. You'll have to disconnect the actuators and check the wires inside the door and where they go to the inside. Try it with both doors open and see what happens.
