Fuse 32 keeps blowing out and with it I have no tail lights and no dash lights.
anyone know which wires these are coming off the fuze box?
I also have another Question about the wires under the dash.
There is a grn/wht and a red wire that both have blade style wire taps on. Any clue as to what these are for?? Those 2 wires are also thicker thst all the rest.

See attached Pic.

This is on a
2000 Focus SE sedan
Sony Explode Edition
143,000 miles

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check your licence plate lights. They tend to corrode and cause weird electrical issues.

Also check the wiring harness through the trunk...they're less of a problem than the hatches and wagons, but that harness can still have broken insulation on the wires that cause all kinds of gremlins.

When my hatch did this, I had no tails or dash lights, and it was from shorting wires in that stupid-short harness.

Yep, the hinge point tends to break Ford crap quality environmentally friendly (a little TOO friendly) wiring insulation.

The wires with power taps were arbitrarily chosen by someone for rigging power to something. Ignore them and they'll go away. Not your problem.
