Having problems with your 1998 Ford Contour ?

I am stuck with a 98 contour with wiring problems that the previouus owner obviously fixed to sell. It now breaks down and currently blows the 20 amp (#10) fuse- the EEC. Is a replacement harness available, a viable fix, what problems might I run into, and is this throwing good money after bad!

I sure wouldn't throw the whole care away because a fuse was blowing.
\015\012I also would not replace an entire wiring harness because a fuse was blowing.

\015\012Electrical diagnosis can be expesive because it usually involves partial disassembly of the vehicle to acess connectors and components for testing. A really good electrical technician should have a pretty good idea of where the problem is within an hour.

\015\012My recommendation is to take it to a reputable shop (ask around first-some shops don't like to mess with electrical repairs but they can usually refer you to one that does.

\015\012You will probably have to authorize 1 hour of diagnostic time up front. If they need more time than that, make them tell you what they have done so far, whath they have found, what they need to do to continue and why do they need to do it. (Make them justify their time)
