Like most on here- between 60-70% of mine were not fully seated

Most of mine took a little bit of a nudge. There were a handful that were pretty bad though.

Isn't this getting to be Much A-do About Nothing already? So everybody has found that they can push their fuses in a little tighter. Has anybody noticed a change in anything since they did that? Does something work better now than it did before the snug-up?
"How could Ford do that?"
Maybe there is a reason?

I would agree that most of the observations here were just "I needed to push the fuses in a little further". While those situations were unlikely to cause any issues now or in the future, there were people like myself who had fuses (3) that definitely would have been a problem down the road. I mean they were barely making contact. Those are the people I was targeting in my post.

As far as a reason? I cannot think of any situation that would require a fuse to not be fully seated in the block. This really looks like a failure at the manufacturing level. Regardless, if this post was able to help even a couple people avoid problems in the future, it was worth it.

Loose electrical connections heat up over time do to increased resistance at the connection and is never a good thing. Throw in getting jostled while traveling. Intermittent electrical functions are the least of the problem .How many fires have been caused by bad electrical connections.

I think this has more to do with preventing issues down the road.
