The most common cause of this is that the fuel pump is drawing to much current due to wear and a possible burned fuel tank connector at the tank. To replace the pump you must raise the truck up and remove the fuel tank. Also replace the fuel filter which is on the inside of the frame on the drivers side. Use a rag to cover the fuel line when disconnecting it with the required special tool.

SOURCE: E.E.C fuse keeps blowing in 1991 Ford Explorer

if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing

sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go

SOURCE: 2008 Ford F450 fuel pump relay fuse keeps blowing.

the fuel pump and radio are not on the same circuit, most liokely the fuel pump is shorted, that is the most common cause, get under the truck and disconnect the fuel pump connector at the tank, if the fuse doesn't blow then u need a new pump.

SOURCE: No brake lights and fuse keeps blowing.

see the end of this message for important information........................................
there were some models where that oil switch was causing fires .. even fatalities but i dont see that recall on your model ... it would be a sensible thing though to not replace that fuse until the problem is fixed .. as i recall the fires were casued by brake fluid leaking into a switch mounted in the braking system/speed control .. the switch had power on it all the time so it was even dangerous with the key off .. since i didn't see that recall for your model that doesn't mean a similar problem couldn't exist ..i would error on the side of safety .. here is a list of recalls for your explorer
http://www.automotive.com/2001/12/ford/explorer/recalls/index.html
WOW .. your car has been recalled for that fire condition .. i just missed it .. a little further look and here is what i found :................
http://www.switchfires.com/recall.htm
if this is your case then its not safe to drive or even to put the car in or near your garage until repairs are made ..

Did you replace the fuse ? If yes, does it blow after driving ? Sounds like you may have a main power wiring problem, could be shorting to ground. Do you have any codes or an engine light on ?

Something is shorting out, disconnect your battery for 30 min and remove the fuse that keeps blowing, reconnect battery WITHOUT putting the fuse in and see if it will start, if it does then you need to take your radio out and look for wiring faults..

When i go to start my car i blow the #11 fuse located under the hood,what does #11 fuse go to?


Hi Aaron, I'm glad to help!
Aaron, see if the fuse blows when you turn the key to the on position without trying to start it. If it does then it could be anything on that circuit. NOTE: If in fact it only blows when you try to start the engine then your problem is in the "START-RUN-CIRCUIT" which mean you have a dead short in either the wiring or something on that circuit. If you find it is on the start run circuit then disconnect the starter and see if it still blows the fuse. CAUTION: When disconnecting the starter always unhook the negative battery cable first then rap the power wire with a rag or tape so it doesn't ground out on the engine and cause more problems. Now that you've disconnected and rapped the starter wires reconnect the negative battery cable and try to start the engine, if the fuse doesn't blow then replace the starter. If the fuse does blow then reconnect the starter remembering my caution. NEXT: Disconnect the Alternator using caution and try to start the engine if it blows the fuse replace the alternator, if it doesn't blow the fuse then you have a direct short in the wiring somewhere in that circuit. Start looking for frayed wiring that could be grounding out on the engine. Hope this help and have an awesome day Aaron.

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse on my 2001 dodge van 5.2 after driving a few miles


These trucks are bad to chaff wires.if it runs 15 -20 min. in park but blows the fuse within a few miles of driving you almost definitely have a wire shorting out. this can be tedious to find. good luck

I had a similar problem where the battery was ok but there was no sound from the starter and also there no lights on in the dash when the key was turned. Checked the fuse and checked wire from the fuse back to the ignition switch. The wire from the fuse was ok in fuse box but had no voltage at the ignition sw. The was also no voltage to terminal 30 in the starter relay. Ran a new wire from the fuse to the ignition and it fixed everything. Check for voltage at terminal 30 on the starter relay

possibly you have a schafted wire in the wiring loom at the fuel injectors, or at the fuse junction box. (short) hit a bump just right and it shorts out blowing the fuse.

Sounds like the computer has short in it. You can get a computer at Oreillys auto parts for around $140.00. You will need to call the part store and order the ecm and give them some info on your engine, so the replacement ecm can be programmed for your vehicle.

First thing would be to replace the fuel filter. Then spark plugs. You may have a weak fuel pump. A faulty fuel pressure regulator could also cause this.
