Have you tried this with the radio off. Has anything happened that may suggest why this started to happen? Is the fuse the right size? Is it the same radio that you've always had?

    What is the new radio rated at for amps compared to the old one as the amount of current is what blows the fuse

It sounds like the motor that engages the 4 wheel drive on the transfer case is shorted, this is not un-common, have the motor and the wiring to the motor tested, it may also have rubbed through on the frame where it routes to the transfer case.

4x4 fuse blows when lever is engaged, i'm trying to find a wiring schematic to search for the short.


had the same problem on my 92 Blazer. my fix was to replace the 4x4 switch on the front axle. I don't remember exactly where it is located but I think it is on top of the axle. if it gets submerged in water it can get water in it and short out causing a fuse to blow. I remember it was pretty easy to get at and change.

Won't shift into 4 wheel drive..lights on panel


Check the fuse to the 4x4, if the fuse is good then check the 4x4 electric motor actuator on the transfer case. You should hear it work from 2wd, 4hi to 4low and back to 2wd with the push of the switch. if you don't hear it working then check the wire harness at the actuator motor, look for any damages like corrosion or cracked wire connector clips. If the 4x4 actuator is working on the transfer case, then the front hub 4x4 actuator may have gone bad and that's located on the front differential. It's common for the clip there to corrode and break and is an easy fix with a new collar pin, at worst it's the diaphragm on the vacuum actuator that is located under the battery tray. There is a vacuum switch on the top of the transfer case, driver side but when that fails, your front hub stay's locked in the on position. Good luck and keep me posted and hope it's a simple fuse that has gone bad. You can pick up all these parts at Auto Zone or Parts Source and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools.

1989 Chevy Pick-up..when 4x4 engages it blowes THE FUSE!


I would replace the 4 x 4 actuating switch located top rear of transfer case. The switch has a 2 wire harness hooked to it. The same thing happened to mine. Cost me $80.00 and 30 minutes.
