Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
It sounds to me like a short circuit causing too many amps to flow through that circuit and blowing the fuse. It might just be a short circuit in the speedometer branch circuit since it does appear to be acting weird.
What would you like me to suggest, leaving the fuse out until you can reach a shop or trying to diagnose and repair the problem your self?
If the later, you will need a multi-meter.
First thing is a wiring diagram. Let me see what I can find. then pull the fuse, place an ammeter in the fuse socket and get a reading. It shouldn't be over what that fuse is rated at of course, then disconnect each item on that circuit until the ammeter drops safely below what would blow the fuse. Let me get right back with the diagram.
what is the fuse rated at?
sorry, just seen that.
it shouldn't be blowing at that low amps.
no I dont
Yeah, I agree and I am having a problem finding a wiring diagram. Perhaps I should opt out. Do you agree?

Yes I do.
Have you found a scenario or component used that will make the fuse fail everytime, not just intermittent?
Hello again, I am sorry you were not pleased with my help.
I hate that you paid to get an answer but left, what appears to me, not satisfied.
