Get some need nose pliers and pull the metal piece out of the holder, unless it was burned away in the short circuit.It may have been blown away when the new fuse was inserted.

You will likely need to replace the fuse socket.

Need picture to show me what is missing


Find a web site that has a fuse panel diagram there are some here but i've had better luck using google when you find the right year make and model download pdf file you want take it out to the car so if on desktop print them its usually a pic of the panel and a list. Each location is numbered and what its for with correct fuse size. when you are looking at the fuse box some empty spots have tabs of metal in them usually thats where a fuse goes they will be numbered slide in fuse between metal tab any size pair of needle nose pliers will help with this task. check your referance sheet 2 an 3 timers to ensure the right size fuse in the right spot..with that being said if you have a fuse that is blowing every time u can put in the next size up if its a 15 try a 20 if that blows go 25 ...i have not had to use any more then 10 amp over what it called for most of the time 5 more does it ..of course the dealer wont recommend this most shop will say its ok but any thing over 10 amps you should the electrical system look at by a reputable shop

Replaced horn fuse and it blew again right away this is a pontiac transport 1997 help


The fuse blows to prevent wire melting and eventual fire! If it blows straight away then there will be a short circuit somewhere in the circuit, which means the electricity is going from the battery positive to the fuse then straight back to the battery negative without any resistance. You would have to follow the wiring and test components until the fuse no longer blows. :)

If the windshield is still leaking use a water hose and run it over the outside till you find the leak, and seal it with windshield adhesive. Moisture is bad for the fuse box. You may want to pull the fusebox out and inspect for damage behind it-melted or burnt wires, terminals, or connectors.
Sounds like you're on top of it. Just stop the leaking and clean up any damage and you should have it. Good luck.

Hi I have a 2006 envoy and have a short in the wiring went to plug in my obd reader and there is no juice found a blown fuse replaced it blew right away fuse is { 2 amp ltr } can you please tell...


I think only the lighter and obd are on that circuit. But, the 2 amp fuse is much, much too small for the lighter, or anything else for that matter. Replace the fuse with a 30 amp fuse, and try the code reader again. If the fuse continues to blow, replace the cigarette lighter assembly.

Mini Fuse in passenger compartment box, F72, rating 15 amps, keeps blowing. The Fuse goes to the Radio head unit, CD player, Jaguar diagnostic connector/OBD2 connector. The Jaguar is a 2002 X type......


i dought the connector is the problem. check cd player same way as you did radio.pull that fuse and check every funcion you can in the car to see if some unlisted on fuse box item is on that circuit. its possible the cig lighter or power outlets are routed through that fuse or aftermarket equipment is improperly installed on that circuitm lighter/power sockets are always going bad and cheap cell phone etc socket adapters are always shorting out and popping fuses.
if you cannot find a bad coponent then look at wireing for insulation rub throughs to the body. look anywere a wire/harness is near an edge that can cause a rub through. bolt/screw heads/seat tracs/any moving exsposed metal object near wires are suspect to.

Alternator fuse blows


Kevin, chances are that when the new alternator was put on. The wires were put too close to something either hot or that it can rub on. If you do not find that this is the problem then return the alternator to the store and have it tested for internal problems. Bad Alternator can do this. Good luck
