Question about Cars & Trucks
I have replace the fuse with a 20 amp the fuse it is suppose to have in it but it blew out again and then i replaced it with a 25 amp fuse and it started fine but then shut off after 3-5 seconds... I just wanna know what could be causing the fuse to blow.
It depends on the year make and model what is running on that circuit.
Something is pulling too much current, just like when a fuse in the house blows.

SOURCE: keep blowing fuse for fuel pump
If it takes more than a couple of hours to blow the fuse its most likely the fuel pump. If it blows instantly you could have a grounded out feed wire (+) wire or a bad relay. Look in the haynes manual to get the location of the relay.

that fuse feeds power to fuel pump relay circuit that feeds pump could be defective pump,or damaged circuit wires that shorts out! and not a good idea to put higher fuse in circuit could cause more damage to circuit! but i know when your stuck, u do what it takes,so inspect circuit related to fuse,

Starter solenoid. I don't have the page here but in chiltons a page shows the ignition to fuse to relay to starter and if you look closely it's quite basic. I had same problem with constant fuse blow #8. The solenoid over time wears and sometimes sticks. When it sticks, your system can overload thus burn fuse. I bet you never stalled out while driving, but only when you shut off and start somewhere it's a no go. That's because you're system is already engaged. I had to change starter as solenoid part of it all. I see others suffer this same problem so please share this around. Solenoid can stick for a millisecond.
