You have a short. It is in the switched part of your electrical circuit. Put a new fuse in and without turning the switch check to see if the map lights work. If they work check the dash lights and see what happens. Good luck. Let me know what happens. Please rate me so I know if I helped. Thanks

    That depends on where the short is. We'll have to cross that bridge when we get to it.

    Same to you from Phoenix!

    Any idea where the short may be if the #36 fuse blows as soon as it is put in (before the car is even turned on).

My 30 amp fuse to my electric fan is blown in my 1998 isuzu rodeo, will that keep it from starting


1st You should replace the fuse.
If you mean your engine cooling fan, then don't drive it untal it's fixed. It can keep the car from starting as a safety procedure so you don't overheat and blow your engine.

If you mean your A/C-Heater blower fan you can start and drive a car with this fuse blown
Hope this helps mike

Likely electrical issue or bad fuel pump which draws excessive amps when reving up thus blowing fuse and creating drain on electrics making oil gauge reading drop.

L999 Chevy Cavalier keeps blowing fuses and won't start


you have a SERIOUS electrical problem. - '.
BUT which fuses keep blowing - that is where we need to start.
1. is it the ignition circuit. - - does starter motor turn over when you trun the key.
2. is it the starter relay circuit.
3. is it the starter motor circuit.
4. is it the computer circuit. - - do you have fuel pumping to the engine and cylinders.
5. none of the above. - - do you have spark at the spark plugs.

Fuel system fuse blowingI


bad wiring or faulty fuel pump

Engine cut off and cant start


If the fuse blew at once, then you have an electrical short. Try disconnecting power lead to start, cover with insulating tape/electrical tape, put new fuse in place, and attempt to "start". if fuse does not blow then the starter motor has an internal fault, replace starter and enjoy. Keep me posted as you perform these tests.

Wont start has spark and fule


check the fuse box under the hood and make sure the fuel pump fuse is not blown.
if the fuse is blown, replace it and see if you have any fuel/spark. the fuel pump fuse controls almost everything electrical under the hood. if the fuse keeps blowing, then there is a short sumwhere in the engine wiring harness.
