This means there is a dead short on that circuit. You can fix this several ways. Get a chassis wiring diagram through autozone.com for free by registering your vehicle. Then look at which systems that fuse operates.

Go to the item that is connected and unplug it. If you now put a test light in the fuse slots, it should not be connected without that item. The wiring is grounded between the item and the fuse panel if the test light lights up. If the test light stays off, then the wiring is okay. The part you disconnected needs to be tested for grounding.

If you find that the wiring is carrying a current when it is not connected, then it has bad isulation and the exposed part needs fixing or replacing.

Change over to an Ohmmeter and disconnect the power. You should have continuity in the bad wire, then repair the wire so it does not provide continuity.

Remove the Ohmmeter, restore power and replace the fuse and it should work.

SOURCE: What keeps causing the ac cont fuse to keep

There is a short somewhere in your ac system. You may be able to find it if you can take the time to go through it. I would start with the ac control panel. Unscrew it from the dash and see if any wires are burned and touching each other.

2004 Pontiac Montana a/c fuse blows as soon as u put it in . Blows hot air only


If the fuse blows as soon as you turn the A/C on, the compressor clutch has failed (shorted). Simple repair.

If the fuse blows as soon as you put the fuse in without the A/C on, you have a physical short in your wiring.

Try unplugging the compressor then put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, the problem may be the clutch on the compressor.

I would disconnect your blower motor resistor then try fuse again, if it does'nt blow then it is either blower motor or resistor,these resistors are common for going bad/and or blower motor. Good luck let me know if you need more info or if this didn't fix it, I will research it more for you

2004 jeep grand cherokee laredo keeps blowing the fuse for the parking lights and taillights


If it "keeps" lowing the fuse, there can be only one reason for it...you "keep" replacing the fuse without diagnosing the circuits to find out WHY the fuse is blowing in the first place.
When a fuse blows, there is a reason for it. If you do not find the reason and correct it, the fuse will continue to blow.

Please also review this article: Where's The Fuse?

With all of that said, the first thing I would check is all of the light bulbs. Sometimes the bulbs get really hot and melt inside and it causes the metal contacts in the bulbs to touch each other and short the circuit out. This is especially true if you can replace the fuse and everything seems to work ok for a while. They will all work until the offending bulb gets hot and "POOF" there goes the fuse again.

This condition can be hard to diagnose since the short circuit usually goes away as soon as the bulb cools off for a few seconds. In cases like this, what I usually recommend to save time and money is to replace all of the bulbs.

If it is fuse #6 (15 Amp) in the Central Junction Block that keeps blowing, it only powers the tail lamps, licence plate lamps, front park lamps and the front side marker lamps. The cost of replacing all of these bulbs is a LOT cheaper than an hour of diagnostic time at most shops. If this does not fix the problem, then you will have to trace all of the wires going to all of these bulbs to find out which one is shorting and where it is shorting. This could turn out to be very time-consuming and expensive, but at least, you will have eliminated the likelyhood that it is caused by a bulb.

My 2004 dodge neon keeps blown the fuel pump fuse. can some one help


If it is working for a time and just blowing once in a while you probably need to replace the fuel pump. If it blows as soon as you put it in, then look for a short circuit in the fuel pump wiring.
