Blowing Central Locking Fuses? WTF! Help?
Hey people, just went for a drive to local shops and went to lock the car, no sounds of the door locks activating and then the car beeps 3 times to give the indication the car didn't lock.
I checked the fuses and the 30amp Door lock was blown, I went to replace that but it blew once I put it in, I then thought maybe cause the doors were open. I closed the doors and it blew again.
3 fuses, and the car is sitting there unlocked.
I havn't down anything to warrent creating a short. The car is exactly the same as it was on Monday and Tuesday. I am thinking something happened Tuesday night but I don't know, how can **** just break without warrant.
Just went out again and blew another 2 fuses.... I don't get it I have down NOTHING, haven't installed anything, havn't played with anything what the fk!!!!!
I just went around the car opened all the doors and eyed the loom and didn't see nothing outta the whack, checked the loom going to the boot also, which I had to crawl into too open. I can only lock the drivers door with the key.
Were could the short be? Bloody Hell!!!
I have moved my car under the car port and disconnected the battery... I had another look around the door jams and boot jam and doesn't look like nothing is pinched etc
Just had a thought that maybe that the power antenna loom is touching the body maybe?
I can find alot of material on EF/ELs but none on AU and the stuff i did find on AU's were actuator related.
Was on the Street Fords Forum and Sam suggested that I go round and unplug the door looms at a time and see if they have a fault but when I went out to the car and proceeded to unplug the drivers loom to start going one by one and I put my hand up the kickpanel area and it is VERY damp almost to the point of being wet?
Could the conbination of the wet weather the cold and foggy nights has put alot of condensation up there? Thus creating something for the power to ark with ( i may be wrong ) I have removed the carpet and alike and made some space for it to 'air' out to dry.
So the car is sitting outside with the battery unplugged and carpet pulled up... no that keen on playing with the power with wet damp area near the fuses.
But I find it strange for only the central locking fuse to blow.
Any ideas were the short could be?
