If you matched the colors of the wires right, then you may have a faulty switch. Did you go new or used in parts. What is the switch for. You may have shorted wires elsewhere. I don't recommend this, but I've put in a larger fuse and looked to the smoke or the smell of burnt wiring. It's up to you. What is the switch for?

SOURCE: 30 amp ignition fuse in engine compartment blows at start

It sounds like a bad ignition switch or something is grounding out.Try to isolate the problem to key positions.See if the fuse blows when you turn the key to ACC(when your dash lights come on without starting)If the fuse does not blow then when you go to start it and it blows it could be one of many problems,the more common ones could be ignition switch,wiring,starter relay,starter soleniod,or perhaps the starter itself is shorting out,this can sometimes happen when a starter goes bad.

SOURCE: 2000 honda civic vp keeps blowing low beam fuses left and right.

Fuses nearly always blow because of a bad earth. The switch only needs to short for a moment and the fuse will blow.

See if you can find a replcement swtich from a local breaker's yard or ebay and go on from there.

SOURCE: Brake light switch fuse keeps blowing

Hi .. First I would remove the lamps, and try the brakes, then try again with the wiring harness disconnected from the housing, to see if you can isolate the problem to the lamps, the housing, or the wiring. If it is the wiring , then you will have to trace the harness back toward the front of the car looking for any place where the insulation on the wire has been damaged .

1987 ford ranger turn signals keep blowing fuses. have changed flasher fuse and switch on column. just keeps blowing?


first thing i guess to understand what is going on here ,is a little back to basics on how turnsignals work , first item you have is power fuse then it's off to flasher module than it goes to the turnsignal switch on colum ,of course anywhere on it way to there the power could got to ground and cause the fuse to trip, now the power depending on Left or right selection , is directed to lights on both front and back of truck,thankfully rangers don't have em on the side) now any place in this pathway the wire could go to ground and blow the fuse, now to troubleshoot and narrow down the area that fault is located , (1) replace fuse with correct size and ck for proper fit in fusebox and start and operate truck for a few minutes DO not use turnsignals, ck fuse is it still good if so go to step 2 if not stop and ck wire conditions in steering colum and switch(2) start truck and try right hand turn signal only verify lights working ,Ok yes/no if not replace fuse and try left side same way, Ok yes /no if right or left side only blows fuses take ALL bulbS OUT of lights and try again , if fuse still blows then look for wire fault on that side of truck if fuse is still good then look carefull at light bulb sockets for rust and powered corrosion (ill bet an 87 has some ) you may need to replace bulb sockets , they do sell em in autoparts stores .

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch


If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

Windshield wiper fuse keeps blowing


Since you Disconnect the motor also renewed the switch and is still blowing the fuse ,it is obvious that you have either broken wire between the switch and the motor. Try to test the failure by means of a tester circuit. Good Luck.

Why does my lexus es300 keep blowing the gauges fuse


I don't know if you've fixed it yet but check the shifter position switch (usually located below the shifter). Just unplug it, replace the fuse and see what happens. The problem is either in that switch or in the wiring between that switch and the gauge cluster.

If that doesn't work you'll need to get a wiring diagram for the gauge cluster, pull the cluster out, and clip the wires for the shifter position switch one at a time until you clip the one and the fuse doesn't blow anymore.

That should solve the problem for you.

Headlight fuses keep blowing


You have a short circuit somewhere in the wiring. Either a cut or bare wire. If not, the headlamp is causing the short. Last resort, use a higher amp fuse (but this may compromise wiring system).

If it is blowing the fuse, you should have some damaged wires along that circuit. The only way to know for sure is testing all the wires. Did it damage the fuse housing? When you replaced the new fuse, did they come on for a second or does it blow them imeediately?

Trying to find out whats wrong. it keeps blowing the fuse in a 1997 yukon


You will only find that problem
with a wiring diagram

You know the circuit,and the fuse
tells you, you have a short or high
current

It doesn't keep blowing,
you keep putting a new
one in, so it will blow,
instead of diagnosing
and repairing the system

With the wire schematic you
go right to the most logical item
and replace
