Hello, thanks for writing in about your Ford Expedition. You should have the radio display removed and then install the fuses again to check if they will blow again. If the fuses don’t blow again then the radio is shorted. It will need to be replaced or repaired. If you need some help with fixing the issue, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come to your home or office to diagnose the issue with these electrical components for an accurate repair.
