Is this a wagon?

Does it have a trailer hitch on it?

it is a wagon
Expert:  Mike V. replied 7 months ago.

Ok, if you haven't, open up the harness where it comes from the body of the car to the gate, that's usually where I see the wires frey or break. Then they start touching there and blowing fuses.

Also, if it has a hitch on it, sometimes the wiring harness for the hitch will cause this as well.

Sorry I am unable to do a phone cal at this time.

Please let me know what you find.

Have you already checked there?

Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 7 months ago.

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. If the wiring checks good at the front and rear with no corrosion, damage or shorts and the grounds check good. use a same amp breaker in place of the fuse and disconnect the multifunction switch and other parts of the harness until you find the area that is not tripping the breaker. Then trace out the circuit in that location. Ill post some diagrams to help as well. Let me know
