SOURCE: 20 amp fuse in the box under hood that keeps blowing

Does it only do this when the heat or A/c is on full blast.. ( I had a few of my customers with this problem and they needed a new blower motor..)

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: 20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

I would start at the starter, it could have a short but it's only apparent when the engine gets it hot. you can try to pull the fuses to other things and see if the problems stop. this will at least give you an idea of where to look. also check fusible links and look for wire corrossion

I have a 2004 chevy surban that keeps blowing the ignition fuse what can cause this


You have a direct short to ground on that power feed circuit . You need to find a power distribution diagram to see what all gets is power from that fuse . Isolate the circuits till the fuse doesn't blow any more , then trace out that circuit that blows the fuse .

Which Ignition fuse ? Which fuse box is it in ? under hood , passenger compartment ?
IGN A
40A
Ignition Switch RUN, START, RUN/START/ACCY
IGN B
40A
Ignition Switch RUN/ACC, RUN/START
Could be ignition switch problem , Chevy has had problems with them .

My 2008 suzuki grand vitara keeps blowing the fuses for the ACC outlets. both are 15AMP, but even with nothing plugged in, nothing down in the outlets and even with larger AMP fuses, they keep blowin


If you use too large a fuse, the wiring can catch on fire, and the whole car could burn up. You'll need an auto electrician to trace that problem. You can remove any bulb and unplug any device that is on the Acc(essories?) circuit; then see if a fuse will stay; start replacing items till you blow the fuse. It seems like a dead short which can surely melt wires if you keep taking chances. good luck.

My 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Classic keeps blowing the Ign sw-batt1 (40A) Maxi Fuse What do I do?


Is the 4th digit of your vehicle's VIN an "N"? If it is an "N", it looks like the IGN SW BATT 1 (fuse#5) powers up the powertrain control module (PCM), body control module (BCM), and instrument panel cluster (IPC). If your PCM ACC fuse G (10 amp) and IPC/BFC ACC fuse J (10 amp) in the left driver side fuse block in the dash are not blown, then you have a short circuit to ground in the wire between the IGN SW BATT 1 fuse in the underhood fuse block, and the ignition switch in the steering column. This would be a thick red wire. A short circuit to ground means that this wire somewhere has rubbed through and is touching metal. Find the short, repair the wire, and you'll stop replacing that expensive 40 amp fuse :)
Unless... someone has tapped into the wire (amplifier or stereo?) and is pulling way too much current through the wire, in which case the fuse would be blowing out. The correction for a blown fuse is NEVER to install a bigger fuse. You risk overheating the circuit and possible fire. Always find the cause of the short/overcurrent.

My ignition fuse is a 40 amp when I check the voltage it is drawing 51.0 amps why


Since most of the circuits are handled by the key switch, you'll have to disconnect a few fuses and relays to find the overload.

30 amp ignition fuse in engine compartment blows at start


It sounds like a bad ignition switch or something is grounding out.Try to isolate the problem to key positions.See if the fuse blows when you turn the key to ACC(when your dash lights come on without starting)If the fuse does not blow then when you go to start it and it blows it could be one of many problems,the more common ones could be ignition switch,wiring,starter relay,starter soleniod,or perhaps the starter itself is shorting out,this can sometimes happen when a starter goes bad.

Blowing ignition a fuse


I believe you mean a 40 amp fuse? Wow! that's a dead short somewhere on a large wire. Could be difficult, or hopefully easy to find. There's always the smoke test option: Solder a jumper wire across the top of the fuse, making the circuit essentially un-fused and look for the smoke. Not the best method, but quick. Warning: if you do this, depending on where the short is, you could melt down the wire harness or possibly start a fire. Try this at your own risk! IT'S A "LAST RESORT" THING, WHEN YOU'VE TRIED EVERYTHING ELSE AND FAILED! Good luck.
