# 3 fuse blown
96 ranger XLT with original camper shell (Raven) from Ford & previous owner. Dash lights out, left rear brake light out, 3rd brake light out on camper shell (for a long time), headlight on chime not working, license plate lights not working. I checked fuses 3 weeks ago. All was fine. Nothing blown. Then all of a sudden one evening, the dash lights didn't come on. Checked fuses again. all was fine. I did replace the dash lights. They were original and dark. Then I checked fuses again and fuse # 3 did blow at some time in the last 3 weeks. Don't know why. I have read all I can in the Ford Haynes manual. Not as helpful as I need. I would like to track down the problem and fix it so I have all the lights working properly. I have 136,000 miles approximately. I suspect the wiring to the camper shell splices are the culprit but not sure. I'll take all the help I can get. So, Thanks in advance.
