SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Neon 20 amp FP/ASD fuse #21 keeps blowing

It appears that it is part of the fuel pump circuit, so I would concentrate on wiring harness & connector at fuel pump, clean it real good, and apply dielectric grease to the connection, as well as the fuel pump relay, connector & harness.

SOURCE: engine 1 fuse keeps blowing when you turn the key

sounds as if you have a power shortage in the van. first establish what fuse keeps blowing this will help in narrowing down the short.once short is located check all connections ,wires,and plugs.

SOURCE: 1999 Chevy Venture 40 amp fuse keeps blowing when

make sure of two things one is any wires touching at the starter to ground or melted and or is the starter drawing too much amperage causing the fuse to blow.starter may have a dead short in it.

Testimonial: "Excellant suggestion. One of the wires was exposed due to rubbing against the brake lines hence the 40 amp. fuse was blowing. This was finally fixed."

SOURCE: I have a fuse blowing constantly on my van

you are on a search and destroy mission, i recommend you buy a manual with wiring diagram, at least it will tell you what is hooked on that circuit, thenits a matter of testing wiring, i suspect you have a short somewhere

Testimonial: "Well, thanks for the opinion, even though I read it after fixing my problem. It was indeed a short, as the cover for the wiring harness was missing, and apparently a wire had rubbed bare and was shorting against the valve cover. I couldn't actually see the bad spot, but by carefully moving it I isolated the spot and taped it up really good and put a new cover in place. Thanks for the quick reply though!"

My 07 Chevy express van 3500 6.0 engine, we had the AC compressor replaced. It stopped blowing,replaced the resistor and blower motor. AC keeps blowing the 20 amp fuse under the drivers seat!

Insure that the 20 amp fuse is the correct size. Might it be shown to use a 30? Otherwise, when compressor was replaced, was drier, orifice tube replaced and proper amount of oil added?

My 1997 Chevy suburban k1500 5.7L keeps blowing the 20-A ENG 1 fuse

I had this same problem with a 1997 Z71 K1500. That fuse was receiving power from the ignition switch in my truck. After putting 4 ignitions in it in 6 months, I finally figured out that every time I put the transfer case in 4Low, the service engine light would come on & the ignition switch would go bad soon after. The electric motor that engaged transfer case was bad. Every time I engaged 4 Low, It would throw power surge to ignition & blow it up.

The "eng1" 20 amp fuse blows and van stops.....replace fuse, van runs fine........suggested fixes for this

Since th fuse is blowing with the recomended 20 amps rating, you must be careful to carefully check out the lines for a short when the vehicle is in motion. Look out for short in the ignition system main line. You may find it difficult if the fault is irregular but do not attempt to increse the rating as it might be dangerous. So check this out.

You have a shorted engine harness, this is not common but it does happen, heat and engine movement cause damage to the harness, this is most common on hi miler cars and vans, the only way to fix it is to start by looking anywhere the harness rubs, that is where the damage occurs.
