Ford FE LTD Blowing Fuses.

Hey guys I a piece of your mind, I've got a problem with my LTD, just recently driving around I noticed that the radio reception has completely gone and when listening to a CD my speakers distort, this only happens when I either turn on the parkers or driving lights, and twice what else has happend was when I turn on my parkers or driving lights and go for a drive I firstly get the distortion and randomly blows out the Park and Indicator Fuse, a 15A.

I have checked the connections at the back were the amp is installed and there sweet, also checked the wires to the back light and there isn't any wires touching ground, nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Ford FE LTD Blowing Fuses.

Possibly the radio and or amps are wired through the parker/tail fuse, if so you are overloading that circuit, and the fuse will always pop, no matter the quality of the connections/unit

Once you start adding amps etc, you really need to provide the sound system with its own dedicated protected circuit, with suitable duty wiring and fusing.

cheers

Re: Ford FE LTD Blowing Fuses.

I checked that out and that wasn't the problem, what I found out was when I hit the steering wheel while the light were on I got no reception, I took the bottom dash panel, the one that covers the Fuse box and relay box and touched a couple of wires with the lights on.

And found that the wires leading into the relays, the int wiper relay, a/c relay, acc relay and the other one (forgot what its for) the interference stopped, until I moved the wires around a bit I got the noise back.

So it seens to be a problem with a wire behind the relays which is touching ground, and has a bad connection.
