Never before have I see so many quick/easy wire taps, specifically the number of taps itself. Can’t have electrical Gremlins if the electricity can’t flow right?
Turns out it was a tap in the license plate lights causing the fuse to pop. Unfortunately I destroyed the housings when removing them but Ford has been using the same license plate bulb housing for 347 years.
Props to them for looming everything and including fuses... so many hidden fuses.
And they’d tap right on the pigtail itself.
