Hey guys,

The 2000 Mustang V6 is the first car that I have ever bought.
I bought it couple of months ago and it is in good condition BUT last night my dash board and my gauges failed to lit up.

I assumed that a fuse was blown and yes that was the case so I replaced the blown 10v fuse with another one. The second one last about two minutes and then it was blown again. I tried 3 other times and same thing happened.

Any ideas on whats going on?

Thanks

Wiring

You've got a short in your wiring harness somewhere that's probably blowing the fuse when you turn the engine over at startup. Try starting your car with all the lights off, including door lights, day or night and turn them on only after your car has fully started, this should solve your problem. If not, look at your ignition system wiring because for some reason, there is to much power being surged through your wiring when its supposed to be kept constant. Also, make sure all of your major electrical components are properly grounded (IE battery, alternator, ignition modules, etc).
