100 Amp fuse keeps blowing

I bought my kid a 1994 Escourt LX and he did something so now the 100 AMP fuse under the hood keeps poping, what is this fuse hooked into that would cause it to pop each time I hook the battery cables back up to it?

I just had that problem and I was hooking up my neg/pos cables backwards... haha it was really confusing because they aren't clearly marked. That's definetely an easy fix!

    You probably have your battery in backwards. The NEG side of the battery is closest to the steering wheel.

    We had an alternator go bad and changed the battery too. Since battery is a top mount and POS/NEG cables are not clearly marked, we kept blowing the 100 amp fuse. We put the battery in backwards.

I have 89 Honda accord LX I can't figure out why my batter isnt getting enough volts to start.And what keeps poping my main fuse under hood 70ABATTERY

Sounds like a short somewhere, check your wiring for any signs of burning. Something that blows your main fuse could easily damage your battery permanently. If your not familiar with autoelectrics you'll need to take it in, it can be difficult to diagnose problems. This might help.

whatever this fuse controls is drawing too much power, you need to know exactly what this fuse is for before you can find the problem,it may be the fuse for more than one thing.......hope this helps........cheers.

My 4x4 fuse is poping on my 1994 cheve silverado 2500

a fuse only blows when it is overloaded eg.if you have a 10 amp fuse & the unit it supplying power to is drawing 15 amps it will blow, that is why the fuses are there,firstly make sure you have the right amperage fuse,if it keeps blowing,whatever it is supplying power to is faulty, don't try and overcome the problem by using a bigger fuse as you may start a fire......hope this helps.....cheers

Keeps blowing the prime fuse under hood,gas gage won't read,heated seats won't come on,after truck starts,blows that fuse each time.Problem just started.

this problem is most likely caused by a fuel pump with high amp. draw on start up.use a amp meter.then replace fuel pump.

A battery was hooked up backwards in car we now have no dash ac etc is there a fuse????

yes there are several fuses including a large amperage fuse in the outside fuse box probably 50 or 100 amp, take your time and carefully check all the fuses inside the pass compartment and under the hood ,youll probably find at least 3-5 fuses blow.
