Try checking your voltage regulator or something else might be messing up your fuses.

thank you, i changes the reg. points and all nine yards, when i went to hook up the new electric wiper motor i accedently hit a power supply and shorted out the truck.. ( twice now ), thier really anit no fuse's in the truck, but i was told that the light switch & ignition switch are some typr of electromagnetic? is this true?? , and im guessing if it is true they reset themselves?? not to sure

i had a look in my workshop manual tonight but i couldn`t find any mention of electrical system protection except for a fuse fitted in the turn indicator wireing.

maybe yours has been fitted with a self restting circuit breaker at some time.??
