I don't own one. But have visited other boards and this seems to be one of a couple bugs that they have. The wire harness for the door, particularly the driver side door tends to pinch or break the wire for the accessories as the pass from the jam into the door itself. You need to pull it apart and straighten the wires, then refeed them through the cable tube so that they are no longer bound up. While your at it and have the cables out and or exposed, check them for breaks. You should find your problem there. Make the necessary repairs, and I mean no Scotch locks, and then reassemble. Nice saturday afternoon project.

So far it seems like its the dome light that is causing the fuse to blow. Still trouble shooting....

I hope that's what it takes. I had a 1989 Crown Vic that we bought new. It had a little bit of the insulation cut too far back on the end of a wire going into the connector body for the right front door lock actuator. It would flat kill the car going down the road. I took 5K miles and a great attention to what we were doing just before it would blow the fuse. On a rough road it would pop the computer! And of course then the car would stop. Fortunately that only happen three times. I had to fight with the service writer ( ) to get them to take the door panel off and look at it. Two trips later his boss said take the door panel off like he says d*** it! Problem solved. Wire fixed, and service writer gone!

Good luck. Shorts are a real PITA at times.
