Re: #12 fuse problem continues! :(
I believe this circuit also excites the altenator. Without this fuse
the altenator won't charge and the battery will eventually go dead.
All of the little lights in the interior are also on this fuse. i.e.
the light for the cigarette lighter. Sometimes the wires for these
lights get pinched by something and short. If this car was an
automatic, I would say that it would be the wires for the light in the
shift console are getting pinched by the shifter. Obviously you don't
have an automatic.

Problem: #12 fuse keeps going out
Last week, fuse #12 (controls inst. panel, fuel/tmp gauge, oil/volt
gauge, turn signal) blew. So the next day, I checked and retaped the
wires in the trunk and put a new fuse in. Everything was fine for a week.
Then last night on my way to work it blew again. So today, I went back
over the wires and tried another fuse. As soon as I started the car, it
went out again. :( I'm at a loss as to the cause. The wires at the
trunk hinge seem ok, (well, taped and unexposed) so I don't *think* the
problem is at that spot. Everything was working fine before this, so I'm
not sure why it all of the sudden appeared. (Aside from the car being an
Until the cause it found, would it hurt to drive with the fuse out? I
know the turn signals don't work, but other then that it seems ok.
