Car Dies. Fuse 23 keeps blowing

My car dies in the middle of driving it. I replace the fuse #23 and try to start car and it immediately blows the fuse again. Is this an ignition coil problem??? The diagnostics did show a coil code, after showing the ignition switch and battery which I have already replaced.

i think you have corroded wires around the fuel pump harness creating a short circuit which is probably blowing the fuse.

SOURCE: blows ignition fuse

You'll want to check the coil packs on the engine by disconnecting them, one at a time, and temporarily replacing the fuse with a circuit breaker of the same rating. Try starting the engine with one coil disconnected (leave it on the engine, but disconnect the wire). If it stays running (though poorly) with a coil diconnected without tripping the breaker, you've found the bad coil and you can replace it easily.
Other than this, take the car into a competent mechanic to diagnose as many electrical issues involve sensitive electronic parts.

SOURCE: ignition switch fuse terminal is blowing red 40 amp fuse when i try to replace it

A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

SOURCE: car blows starter fuse after hitting bump in road

check out the wiring. The bump may have made some connections loos or may have shaken up the wires and wires that are exposed may have hit each other or the metal part of the car which caused a short and in turn caused a fuse to blow.

SOURCE: 99 dodge neon # 10 fuse ing feed 15 amp blows out

There's a short in the circut. Check continuity of the wires that feed from that fuse (you'll need a wiring diagram to identify each wire). You've got something that is causing too much amperage to move through the circut and the fuse blows. Make sure the amperage on the fuse is correct for the application (your owner's manual or fuse box diagram should tell you what amperage rating to install in each fuse slot).

first thing to do is to have the alternator checked out as the fuse blowing may indicate an internal short and therefore the battery is not being charged ( 3 starts and needs a jump)

Yes I had the same problem. The wires that plug into the sensor at the catatytic converter were rubbing against the drive shaft untill they finally wore through causing the short against drive shaft. repaired wires and it fixed everything
