15amp efi fuse blows

It is not related to car being cool down , I think you are having ignition switch on . The EFI fuse goes directly to the contact switchin the EFI relay. Maybe try removing the EFI relay, turn the ignition to ON, and see if the fuse blows.
Doing this, the car won't start, but it might give you a clue as to where the short circuit is located. ... Check the fuse/relay box next to the driver side fender in the engine compartment.

Why is my 2001 kia rio keep blowing fuse?

Like blowing a fuse in a house, the fuse in the car is blowing because there is a short somewhere or there is too much current trying to flow thru the circuit.
You would need to check that circuit for a short to ground.

I just washed my car i was at the light and the car shut off i have lights radio works and everything it keeps burning one of the 20 amps fuses under the hood with the engine symbol and i have been getting...

Hi Eason, The fuse which keeps blowing is the ECU fuse, which means the computer isn't working. That being so, the vehicle will will not start. The starter motor problem is separate and will need the starter relay or the solenoid replaced. The fact that the fuse for the management system keep blowing means there is a short or overload of that system which must be detected urgently! (WITH ALL DUE HASTE...IF NOT SOONER) in other words it may be dangerous if you have a short, as it can cause a fire! Get it sorted asap. Regards John

1999 f350 diesel engine shut down, turns over but

that fuse powers pcm fuel heater and some other things. when the fuse blows the pcm shuts down. causing it to not run. usually its the heater that is bad. it is located at the back driver side by the fuel pump. you can unplug it and see if it starts. if so you will need to replace the heater

Fuel fuse blowing out

Well buddy by now i hope ur problem must have been solved...But if in any case its now, then let me ask u to try to get ur fuel pump checked first instead of directly changing it. Ask ur mechanic to check the motor of the pump and the inwards and outwards flow of the fuel. if thats ok then no need to change. If thats not ok, then first ask him to change it, it might cost u 200 $ for a new branded one from nissan company. And check ur "Check Engine Light", it shud be on, so get ur car computer reprogrammed by the company. If yet ur car doesnt starts, then check ur Air Flow Sensor and Crank Sensor. Any one of these might not be working for sure.

Check and let me know if it worked. If it didnt email me on

I will solve ur problem definitely as I also have the same car.

check the wire harness to the ecm... which is located under the radio... if you , like I , live in a wet / snowy climate... the water /ice from your boots melts and collects near the harness. Maybe it corroded a wire and is causing it to short?

My ignition fuse keeping blowing

You have a wire rubbing on something metal. Look at the wiring harness in the car and engine compartment. Try moving them around a bit and see if you can get the fuse to blow or not to blow.
