1983 fuse relay 15amp fuse marked "engine" blows

This fuse somehow controls idle. Without this fuse i must race the engine and keep it at high idle or it dies. Ideas? where to look for the short? I replaced the fuse and it worked for a bit but hit some drunk bumps on the highway and it blew again. thanks

    Good ideas fellas. The bulb came out of the dome light and until recently had no bulb. I have been using an ipod charger/radio transmitter for music. Other than that, no new parts or anything.

    The battery charge light is on along with the break light. The battery has died. So the battery isnt getting charged while the car is running. Does anyone know where to start looking? the "engine" fuse seems specific to idle and maybe cold starting... I would love a diagram before i start tearing apart my lighter assembly and all the odd electrical components

If your vehicle has a throttle body control switch/valve it might be loose or defective. Also, one of your fusible links might be in need of replacing.

SOURCE: Just recently my 98 Toyota Corrolla has started blowing a fuse.

I would remove the dome light, and disconnect the wiring connector, and then put in another fuse. If it does not blow, I would think that the dome light switch is shorted to ground.

SOURCE: Fuse Keeps Blowing

Replace the lighter assembly, it is shorted, this is very common.

SOURCE: 1992 volvo 240 keeps blowing overdrive fuses

More likely that the solenoid in the transmission is shorted to ground. Has any new electronic equipment been installed recently, like stereo, alarm, etc?

your fuelpump could be causing the fuse to blow as it may be seizing up

SOURCE: Cooling Fan Fuse

Sounds like a short in the wiring, or a bad fan motor drawing too much current. Check the wiring for shorts, if none are found, replace the fan motor.

15 amp is a fair current draw and for it to blow after a few minutes means that there is a short in that circuit that is allowing a drain to earth that just exceeds the 15 amp. It is in the ignition part of the system and may be a bad connection ( water ) or a problem appearing in the ECM or relay . Run fault codes to find the area of the fault. Because it is taking time to blow the fuse, it will be difficult to find. Check all wiring for rub marks .

Gas pedal gets stuck and keeps the car going cant stop without turning the car off


dont drive it. find the cause and fix it now.
Hot and cold engine or BOTH>?
1995 Tracker, no tranny , no 4wd , on engine options stated.
Exact high RPM in neutral, not stated...... 1500 is normal cold.
keeps going in Neutral. (nah , you have 5 ways to stop any car.
key, hand brake, foot brake and neutral. and with 4wd, 1 more neutral.
keep that in mind driving any car.
this car has up to 3 throttle cables that can stick. and more!

1: floor mats hit the pedal>? ala. Toyota style (lawsuits)
2: the three cables are, throttle. , cruise and A/T transmission kick down cable. if car is M/T and no cruise it has 1 cable.
so disconnect it, throttle fixed? (disconn,. 1 by 1, bingo?

no cure?, then its not the pedal , you meant just high idle.
yes, replace the cable or bad parts three.
ok say its not the cables.. (tests proved that)
the 95 came with 2 engines, 8valves and 16valves,
they work differently (8v love so race, 16v loves to stall)

1: ISC Stuck open, common.
2: 8v, any air leaks at all , will cause super high idle speeds.
3: throttle valve in the throttle body is stuckopen (gunk) or the return spring broken (very very rare the latter,in fact never heard of one breaking)
4: IAC (thermal idle control stuck open ,(my 97 was). and lots more.
5: on the 16v it takes 2 failures. to make high idle.
gross rich running engine (cold engine its normal) and any air leak
once hot the engine can not race unless there is huge overfueling
and an air leak.
6: the 8v has this device on the side of the throttle body.
called a dash pot. its just a fast idle vacuum servo.
if stuck open the engine will scream full time....
7: ECU stuck in limphome, can cause too high idle speeds.

we need to know which engine
http://www.fixkick.com/find-parts.html
8v or 16v first.
then does the idle race hot or cold or both (engine temperatures)
if it races , then how fast?, RPM the dash tachometer tells you that.

it can be as simple as a 50cent hose cracked.
to a dead ISC. (idle speed control) IAC is thermal idle air controller.
the IAC must be closed on a hot engine,
if the the engine never gets hot,it will scream full time.

2002 tracker,keeps blowing 15 amp fuse that runs heatr fan and lets car shift out of park


I looked at the wiring diagrams and those two circuits should be on two different fuses.
The shift lock solenoid is powered by the 10amp turn signal fuse and the 15amp stop light fuse. If the fuse blows when you put it in park, I would say the shift lock solenoid is the problem and the stop light fuse is the one that is blowing.
The heater fan and relay are powered by a 60amp fuse and a 15amp fuse but not the stop light fuse.
Its possible there is a short some where that has connected these two circuits.
You could disconnect the shift lock solenoid to see if the fuse still blows.

My interior light fuse keeps blowing on my 1983 Lincoln continental mark 6


Your car has quite a few things tied into that circuit. I believe it's a 15 amp fuse you are referring to. that is what that circuit is calling for.
I feeds into the headlight switch where it then runs the dash lights, auto delay exit light. Power door locks, illuminated entry module, LT and RT door switches, door lights, lights under seats, glove box light, engine compartment light, trunk light, lights on warning chime, antitheft system, clock(analogue dash only), radio, cigarette lighter lights and courtesy light switch.
Light bulbs can cause fuses to blow. If the fuse blows imediately you have a dead short somewhere. You can buy a circuit breaker to put in place of the fuse and it will take longer to blow than the fuse unless it is a serious short. I would first suspect a bulb. Start removing them 1 X 1 starting with the dome light. Note: also try putting the dome light switch in different positions, the cigarette lighters, remove them. All the bulbs you have easy access to, remove and reinstall if the problem is still there.
You can only go so far before it is going to take a professional to solve the problem. Electrical problems are among the more difficult for an untrained person to diagnose and fix. You can deal with the obvious and simple things, but you can actually do more harm then help if you start digging without knowing what you are doing. EVEN POOR GROUNDING OF A CIRCUIT CAN CAUSE HIGH RESISTANCE AND CAUSE A FUSE TO BLOW.
I hope I have given you some understanding of what is going on. Your car is one of the more complex ones to works on in certain areas.

99 vw jettal 2.0 gas fuse 29 15amp fuse keeps blowing-no spark unpluged coil and fuse keeps blowing. help please


Thats the fuse for the ECU, engine control module, and is a 15amp for gas 2.0. i would locate the ECU which is under the center of the plenum in the engine compartment and disconnect the long plug. Check for green discoloration on the multipin connector. Sometimes moisture will get in there and short some of the pins together. Leave ECU unplugged and replace the fuse. If it still blows cause is between the fuse and the ECU.

Have an auto electrician look at it.

I had the same problem just last week. It turned out to be the idle regulator. Every time the IR got hot it would blow the fuse. You can drive the car without it attached but get it fixed asap. Got one for $40 from a spare parts place ($200 brand new) and my mechanic mate changed it for me (looked easy enough to do it yourself). Good luck.
