Well, certainly not a short circuit, so has much more been added from the original equipment? Pulling a toad, perhaps?
Is the fuse large enough, but not to exceed the wire size specs.?
For example, #14 awg should be fused for 15amps. and #16awg is fused for 10amps.

Thanks for the quick replay...I did find a clearance light out in headlight assy...it was Hot when I took it out and replaced...hope that was the problem.

I was told by our Ford dealer that a bad clearance light ( bad socket, dim, or brighter than others) could cause that symptom...so I am hoping the bad light out was the problem...
