Intermittent Electrical Shorts
My truck (1995 XLT) would not start and I found the starter fuse (15A #24) blown. Replaced fuse and it started, but the problem is intermittent. At one time I found the wire at the starter relay, the one from the ignition switch, shorted to ground. Explains why the fuse was blowing. I think the problem is in the C146? connector. The big one behind the clutch pedal. Does anyone have any information on this connector? It looks like it has a handle on it. Is it a connector or just a cover?
