Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab

1 Answer

Blowing 30 amp engine control fuse.

My truck keeps blowing the 30 amp engine control fuse and no one can figure out why.  I was told that the fuse relates to the fuel injection system.  I have checked all of the exposed wires for a short.  I am hoping that some one can help me figure this out.  Is there a relay somewhere that I don't recognize or a part that might be heating up.  The new fuse will blow until the truck sits or maybe because we are towing it.  Something allows us to eventually be able to put in the new fuse.  Thanks for looking.  I hope you can help.

    I have a 1996 Dodge Ram and it keeps blowing the 30 amp Engine control fuse. I put a new one in and the truck starts and blows the fuse again.

You say it eventually allows you to put new fuse in, do you mean when it sits for a while, a new fuse won't blow, but if it blows and you immediately replace it, it blows again instantly?

1996 dodge ram 1500 keeps blowing 30 amp engine control fuse


Look for a part of that wire cable that is rubbing on metal somewhere or that some mechanic pinched under a bolt or drilled a screw through. It may take some time but the closer you look at that wire from end to end the faster you will find the problem. Blowing a 30 amp fuse means something is shorting out pretty good so go find the short.

My #20 fuse in the engine compartment is blowing, which is a 15 amp fuse


You look up the circuit that blows the fuse in your owners manual

You then need wiring diagrams to figure out why a fuse blows &
solve the problem,you don't replace the fuse, only to have it keep
blowing

30 amp fuse keeps blowing i was able to change it and it would start now it just blows at the turn of my key


If the 30 amp fuse blows there is fault or short within the igntion /fuel pump circuit. You need to check this case by ISOLATION. remove connection of the suspected sections one by one and confirm when the fuse blows as the particular circuit is connected.

Yes my fuse for my wipers keeps blowing and my wipers turn on when i plug fuse in even know the wipers are turned off.


The power distribution box in the engine compartment # 6 , 30 amp mini - fuse , front wiper motor , front wiper relay , front washer pump , FEM ( also # 7 , 25 amp mini - fuse , rear wiper etc. ) The owners manual shows to disconnect your battery cables before servicing anything in the PD BOX

your relay could be shorted which makes the fuse keep blowing
