I assume this has electronic steering and that fuse has no power to it also.

So, is the chassis and wiring from the 2006 Crown Vic or the 1966 F100? How about the steering, to, what is that from?

As for the electronic steering on the crown vic, check fuses 4 in the battery junction box, near the battery and 5 in the central junction box, below dash, left of steering column.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
