2002 E150 conversion van with ford system 3/4 security system. Blew dime light fuse replaced fuse, alarm goes off. must press override button to start. Door locks do not work with door or pod. Alarm seems to be armed at all times until dome light fuse blows. There is a TRW electronic control box located behind drivers seat in in-between the outer wall and inner panel. When I press the pod or door lock button I here a click coming from this unit, I have never heard prior to this. I believe this is control for the security system and is bad. Help
JA: Have you had any recent electrical work done on the car? Have you checked the circuit?
Customer: Ford dealer did the recall for the fusible link on cruise control
2 months ago. The system worked. I did notice the lights had quit flashing when arming/re-arming the alarm about 6 months ago
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Worked on it this morning, Fuse blows on dome lights which are connected to the security system when u unlock doors with the pod. I have changed the fuse and it continues to blow. You lose the door after replacing the fuse system arms in about a minute without manual arming by pod or door button. You open the door and the alarm goes off and will not turn off with pod or door button. You must press override button to turn off alarm and start vehicle. If the fuse is not replaced you can start the vehicle so long you don't press the un arm or arm button on pod/door
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Battery is fully charged, I would like to repair myself.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
