I have a 2008 harley davison heritage softail Blow the ignition fuse. Got it home the next day it ran fine Went to auto parts to git fuse Came back put one in works Started it up 12 or more times...

i9ndicates that you have dead short problem in a component in the ignition system
could be a bad ground causing excessive current ( arcing) when component is moved or wiring moved
maybe an auto bike auto electrician could pinpoint the problem area
possible a voltage control problem causing excessive current through the fuse , intermittently causing it to blow
Again a bad ground in regulator problem

I have a 2011 kia Sorento that continues to blow the 40 amp ignition fuse under the hood. Replace the fuse...runs a couple days then blows again. We have replace relays and fuses and checked starter..

Starters will still work when worn but will have increased drag drewing too many amps. which will blow your fuses. before replacing older starter first remove all wire connections shiny clean and replace. make certain starter is tight to block(this is your ground. ) Important to remove ground cable from battery before working on starter.

Honda metropolitan 05 Met II blowing 15 amp fuse

Did the scooter start OK when you first started it after bringing it out of storage, or did you have to use the kick starter? Maybe the battery is faulty and is pulling a lot of power.
Check the charge rate with an ammeter (use a multimeter that can measure 20 Amps DC) and see if the current exceeds the 15A rating of the fuse. If it does, replace the battery.

'99 Ford Crown Vic LX: #12 30A Maxi fuse blows seconds after starting or ignition turned on.

i had this problem with my 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo with the brake lights it kept popping fuses right after the ignition was turned on try putting a higher amp fuse in place of the old one that keeps blowing then check for shorts to the starter and check grounds and wires and also the transmission issue check the fluid and then if the fluid is fine change the transmission filter the filter may have not gotten replaced when the transmission was rebuilt and may be clogged or dirty

Starter Fuse Keeps Blowing When I Try To Start My 2001 Camry

The starter has gone to ground. This is either a coincidence of age or the repair shop left something disconnected that has slapped around and grounded the starter or some of their other work has shifted around and done it. It could just be a coincidence. If it went to ground internally, it will need replacing. If something shifted and grounded it out, putting that something where it belongs and THEN replacing a fuse should fix it. Most shops reuse your starter on their new engine.

1999 dodge ram truck 1500 4x4 worked fine park it and next morning tried to start truck but all bell and lights come on but 30 amp ignition run fuse keeps blowing and truck wont start ran fine when...

This 30 amp fuse, If it blows when cranking, it is usually the starter dragging, if it blows by just turning the key on it is usually the fuel pump drawing too many amps.
I hope this helps.

Starter/Fuel Pump fuse, or the Relay Fuse blow

the fuel pump comes on when you turn the key on the starter comes on when you turn all the way to start so i would think the short is in the fuel pump if it blows by just turning the key on
