    This would be an issue with the engine fuel injection wiring harness, somewhere on that harness the wiring has rubbed through and is shorting out the injector circuit, look for places the wiring goes through or around engine component's this is always where they rub and short to ground.

Last time I had this sort of issue it was due to an internal issue with the alternator.

Why does my ignition switch 40 amp maxifuse keep blowing?


get in an accredited auto electrician as there is a dead short to blow a 40 amp fuse
may be what the mechanic did is the problem but I think that it would have blown immediately if it was
I would be looking for a wire heavy size wire like to the alternator, or after the fuse box etc that is touching ground or a relay that is faulty

2002 Nissan Pathfinder _ Electrical Problems


Unusual the dealer can't or won't find the problem.
A mechanic would check everything in that circuit for shorts to ground.
Was the fuse blowing before the alternator and battery were replaced ?
Based on the wiring diagrams I would vote for a defective alternator.
The 10 amp fuse number 8 powers the cluster which also goes to the alternator. If the alternator shorts out internally it would blow that number 8 fuse and take the cluster with it.
The other circuits you mentioned are controlled by the key switch but are fused after the switch. So if the switch was causing the problem it should be blowing a 40amp fuse.
I would probably take the alternator off and have someone else test it.

..@briver916...Recheck all the fuses and relays in the 2 boxes under the hood and another one of fuses and relays panel inside the car, front of the driver seat, behind the pull out box next to the hood release handle..Under the hood check inside the one with 8" black square box;Check # 1 slot fuse, it is 60 amps for (+B ), check # 8 slot fuse for Engine control 20 amps, check # 15 slot Fuel pump 15 amps..And check another skinny black box lie next to that box, it has relay F, that is Engine control, check that also...And inside the car fuses panel; Check # 1 slot fuse 10 amps that for Ignition coil, # 8 slot Engine control 7.5 amps, # 12 slot Engine control 7.5 amps..After that recheck the battery post, that maybe needed re-tight..Don't force to tight too much, that will crack and broke the post and the plastic battery body...And check all the ignition wires and spark plugs that are tight or needed to replace..And check all the vacuum lines that are loose and leaks suctions or sometimes they are crack open by long ages..By the way check and recheck all those other fuses and relay for make sure they are good...Believe me that not hard to figure out those problems..You did everything rights so far..That one 100 amps fuse at the + battery post cable was connect to alternator for recharging your battery and give power to other items when car was running..Below that post, the middle cable was connect to the starter motor and the bottom cable was connect to that 8" black fuses and relays box under the hood...

My efi fuse keeps blowing on my 87 celica st


you can try a bigger fuse and if it still blows it then you have a short in one of the wires. i then you will have to hunt down the short that can take awhile.

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).
