Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi this is lostrider, The biggest problem we have with that fuse blowing is due to a short to ground on the steering column, that fuse feeds the O/D button on your shifter and the harness runs through the shifter and routed on top of the steering column, you need to remove the column covers and the black shifter cover can be pulled up to see the wires and inspect the harness from the shifter to find the short, if its located right at the shifter then the shifter will have to be replaced, if you have some room on the wires then you can repair the harness, here is a diagram, hope this helps.
here is the procedure, hope this helps.
