BA Electrical dramas need help

HI need help with BA2 fairmont electrical problems.
Have situation where interior lights keep blowing fuses. Have now repaced fuses several times with no luck. Ford service has now replaced computer 2 times and problem is still present. Service agent seems to be struggling with this and it is costing me a fortune and off the road 8 days.
I would greatly appreciate any help/ suggestions/ solutions.
Thanks

Just double check you are putting the right voltage bulb in because if you put in a lower voltage one it wont last that long.

Disregard that reply i read it wrong thought you were blowing bulbs, whoops i need glasses.

sounds like you have short somewhere in the loop maybe + wire touching body , hate wires.

Re: BA Electrical dramas need help

I agree that there must be a wire or something likely grounding somewhere. Why Ford service replaced the computer twice has got me worried. I would argue about paying the full costs of that if it never cured the problem.

Perhaps you may be better going to a reputable auto Electrician for checking and advice on this as they may be far more able to deal with it than your local Ford service centre by the sounds of this.
