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?

I unplugged the rear doors both left and right, put the fuse in again and it started to short so i pulled it out before it blew... I was going to remove the passengers side loom but it started to rain.

I have unplugged the drivers side earlier in the week and it blew so I assume it isn't the right front & rear doors. so If it blows when i remove the left front door loom it must be something else... and this means i will have to take it to the auto electricry

Today I unplugged the door loom on the passengers side (all looms bar the drivers were unplugged) and fuse blew. And as I did this proir with the drivers door thus all door looms have been unplugged.

I rang a local sparky and he found it wierd, and said to look at it will cost me 50 to 100 dollars hmmm.

I am leading to think, maybe my bcm is on it's way out or the fault exists near the loom that plugs into it.

Oh yeah, I see they do! Went to one thread, HELP I CAUGHT KANGAROO VD - www.fordmods.com
,it seems it took the boys a month to solve this problem. How hard could that have been?
As far as your post, it it's blowing fuses as soon as you put them in, you've got a dead short somewhere. It will just take some investigation on your part. PITA, I know. A wiring diagram may help you know where to start.
