Ford ranger fuse blowing

I am working on a 2002 Ford Ranger. What is wrong when the fuse blows every time you put vehicle in drive?

what fuse blows?

there is a short to ground somewhere. once you know what circuit is affected then you can trace the wiring to find where the short might be located. If it happens when you put it in drive look for place where the wire harness would rub on the motor, trans or a mount when the torque of the motor in gear will pull on the wire harness.

I had the same problem blowing fuses and it ended up being the reverse switch in the transmission just reach under and on the transmission is a reverse swithch un plug it and replace the fuse and if it doesnt blow you need a new reverse switch.
