Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota
Fuse blows after a few minutes after start up it shows no error codes
Depends what this fuse is for if its for the charging circuit and supplies power to the alternator then 30 amps is too low and this would blow the fuse .You will need to follow the output from this fuse with a continuety meter to see if it is the alternator feed wire which would be the big thick one on the alternator as the output of the alternator will far exceed 30 amp

A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

There's a short in the circut. Check continuity of the wires that feed from that fuse (you'll need a wiring diagram to identify each wire). You've got something that is causing too much amperage to move through the circut and the fuse blows. Make sure the amperage on the fuse is correct for the application (your owner's manual or fuse box diagram should tell you what amperage rating to install in each fuse slot).

hmm. lt look like there are poor joints in your wiring specially the groung wire. check the diagram of your auto. check the unit diagram for which the fuse blows. usually the fuse blow when there is a short circuit. if you look around you will find it.
