Solution , find the reason why that circuit is drawing more current than the fuse can handle . possibilities include shorted wiring , bad fuel pump , bad relay . will require further testing .

2001 chevy malibu fuel pump fuse keeps blowing


Usually a sign of a faulty pump, or a problem in the wiring between the relay and the gas tank.
You could unplug the harness at the tank to verify.

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.

Will not start and checked fuel pump no power to fuel pump i also have blown fuse for ecmb that blows as soon as i replace it


ECM B fuse supplies a constant 12v hot at all times to the VCM/PCM and to the fuel pump relay. The fuse is blowing telling you that there is a short to ground somewhere. Try this, take the fuel pump relay out and put a new fuse in. If it doesn't blow put the relay back in and if it blows then try a new relay. The relay may be shorted to ground internaly. Other wise you'll have to trace the wires to the VCM and the pump relay to look for a chafed wire that's contacting metal. The wire coming from the ECM B fuse is orange and has a splice in it going to the pump relay and the VCM/PCM.
Hope this helps.....Andrew

No power to fuel pump and the ecmb fuse bows as soon as i put it


Unplug all wires to the distributor, coil, fuel pum and injectors, then see if the fuse blows, if it does, sounds like an ECM failure.

2000 Grand Voyager blowing the ignition fuse


Was the old fuel pump bad? It might be worth the cost to replace the ignition switch. The wires to the fuel pump would be a second guess if the old pump was bad and burnt the wires before the fuse went. When you eliminated the fuel pump you also eliminated the wires to the pump and it started. Then you replaced the pump, but not the wires. The ignition switch is the other end of the circuit.

I have put in 3 new fuses into the fuse box on my '04 durango and they all blew. Can anyone tell what I'm doing wrong?


What ever the fuse controls has the problem and needs to be addressed first then replace the fuse. Example; if the fuel pump was shorted to ground every time you put in a fuse, the fuse will blow so the fuel pump circuit would have to be take care of first.
