When the fuse blows figure out what you are doing, what switch is being pressed, then remove the needed panels to access the wiring to the switch and motor it operates, then you will find the damaged wiring and repair the short, no quick fix, just hard grunt work.

Insert the key and turn the lock cylinder while lifting up on the lift gate. You have to get the gate open. Once open, The strike plate (where the locking mechanism hits) is bolted to the jamb. Loosen the bolts and slightly move it toward the rear of the vehicle. NOT TOO MUCH!
Tighten the bolts, and try it. Hope this helps.

When you said, the bleed valve had to be loosed before the caliper would release, (caliper is already replaced), then we know there was a lot of preasure in the braking lines backed up some where,
and every time the brakes are applied to compress the the caliper to stop your truck,
the preasure would not release,
Is a clear indication that the Flexible Rubber Brake Hose attached to the caliper is backed up, clogged, kinked, etc..
That would be the next item in the brake system to check.
Its Bottom Up Disagnostics...
When the hose is off try to slide a strong piece of wire (metal clothes hanger) through the hose..

Replace Rubber Brake Line's, on both sides.
I reccomend Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line.

Here is a video that kinda shows corrosion in a rubber hose.
Also check out other videos on youtube.

Somewhere in your wiring you have a bad connection in either the power wire to your cluster or the overall ground. That is why you have the intermittent operation.

It may not be the fuse! Try a few things first:

1. The wiper is in the same circuit. If it is lagging off the locked position (up), it may disable the rear window. Carefully push the wiper arm to the lock position (where it sits when it isn't wiping ;) ). Try the window.

2. If that doesn't work, behind the driver's seat is a relay board for that window. Check it.

3. Beside the fusebox there are two relays. Take something thin, but firm (short piece of thick wire, toothpick etc) and push it carefully into the hole in the relay to reset it.

By the way, if one of those worked, let us know, but still do what I suggest in 3 and I'll do my best which means you'll know which fuse is which if something else happens.

3. You still want to check the fuse? If you don't know someone with a similar vehicle, i.e. take a picture of their fusebox cover, or you don't want to buy a new cover (it's a good idea and you know it :P ) then post a picture of the fusebox so I can be sure I'm sending you a picture of the layout of the correct fusebox ;)

(There are a lot of different layouts depending exactly on the model so I don't want to post pics of all of them! See why I suggested some other methods of solving the problem?)

Check the fuel pressure. A slight dip in pressure will keep the engine from starting. When is the last time you did a tune up? Even if you are getting some spark you might not have enough. New plugs, wires, distr. cap could solve this problem. Or try a new fuel filter. When diagnosing a car problem always do simple cheap things first, as this usually ends up being the cause.
