What is on the same circuit as the backup lights for the 2001 Sport Trac - the fuse keeps blowing?
On the same fuse is the daytime running lights, DTR sensor, rear defrost. BTW, did you ever find out what is causing it to blow?? Mine is doing the same thing and I don't have any idea what the cause is. If you know, email me back at email@example.com so I can get mine fixed. Thanks
it took a while for me to diagnose that issue on my 2001 sporttrac, but it seems that ford also placed the OD switch (on transmission gear selector on column) on this circuit and finding the wiring for that switch had chafed at the hinge point in that selector stalk (replaced fuse and played with selector with engine running, plastic off column and in the dark saw the spark. just wrapped with tape and all is good now.

If you've checked the fuses, then: Check the bulbs on that circuit. Note that sometimes the license plate light, trailer hitch lights, and/or a couple of other lights may be on the same circuit. One bulb being burnt out could cause the problem. Start with all turn signal bulbs and then check others. Check the flasher relay unit. Check wiring harnesses and wires. If it ends up being a bulb, see sources and related links…
What is the difference in sport package tail light for 98 dodge 1500 ram verses without sport package lights?
Fuses do not control. They are a safety feature that only comes into play when there is a problem and the electrical circuit pulls more power that it was designed to. The fuse sacrifices itself to keep the wires and other electrical components from destroying themselves and possibly starting a fire. That said, I could not find a picture of your specific fuse panel, but it is the one under the hood. Go open it…
