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

SOURCE: ignition switch fuse terminal is blowing red 40 amp fuse when i try to replace it

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!

SOURCE: 99 dodge neon # 10 fuse ing feed 15 amp blows out

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).

15 amp is a fair current draw and for it to blow after a few minutes means that there is a short in that circuit that is allowing a drain to earth that just exceeds the 15 amp. It is in the ignition part of the system and may be a bad connection ( water ) or a problem appearing in the ECM or relay . Run fault codes to find the area of the fault. Because it is taking time to blow the fuse, it will be difficult to find. Check all wiring for rub marks .

Unplug the a/c compressor, there will be a plug near the pulley. Install a new fuse. Start the vehicle and turn the a/c on. Wait about the same amount of time it took for the fuse to blow in the past. Did the cues blow? If no replace the a/c compressor, the clutch has gone bad. If yes, than the wiring between the fuse and the relay or the relay to the comps sore is grounded. A careful inspection of the wiring should reveal the problem.
