My brother-in-law owns a 1997 Ford Escort Wagon, and is now having problems
with it. Problem being when a certain fuse is inserted into the fuseblock
under the dash (slot is named "room" in schematic), the brakelights come on
and stay on. The other problem is that when the brakes a pressed, the radio
will come on, but otherwise the radio will not work at all. I have looked
under the dash, and I did manage to find 4 wires that were slightly melted
and fused together, but I did cut them out and replaced them, soldering them
and wrapping them in electrical tape. Still, no change. I did some further
searching under the dash, looking for melted wires or possible shorts, but
could not find anything.
Could anybody give me some clues as to what the problem might be, as well as
possible places to start looking. Any help would much greatly appreciated.
