> The same fuse, Nbr 8, 15 amps, blows every few months. It controls the interior lights, cigarette lighters, the dash computer display, and apparently the alarm.
> Usually it will then blow replacement fuses immediately for a day or so, and then all seems fine again for a few months. I've been up to 40Amp fuses, which still blows, so it's not just something pulling a little too much current.
Whoa! Never, NEVER, ever, replace a blown fuse with one of a higher
current value. If there is a short in the circuit, the higher amperage
fuse allows more curren than the wiring was designed for, which can make
for new problems, like melted/burning harnesses.
To me, it is obvious that something *is* pulling a "little" too much
current. Sorry but I can't really help you locate the source of the
problem, but I think you got some mail on that.
