    you have a serious short to blow a 30 amp link, don't keep replacing it or u will burn the car down, take it to the dealer and have them find the short circuit.

Something is drawing too much power and you will have to find out which it is. When the head job was done they may have gotten a wire pinched in the block or some thing. You would have to be quite mknowledgable in vehicle electronics to find it. I would suggest that you take it back to the shop or guy that done the head job for you to correct.

I purchased a 4 terminal starter solenoid. A 3 terminal was on truck. This 4 terminal solenoid includes an S and an I terminal. Is the I terminal used on a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6 4WD?

If the truck had a three terminal one on it then you would not use the (I) terminal, nor would it cause you to keep blowing your fusible link. It would cause a hard start cold because all the (I) terminal does is feed 12v directly to the coil on cranking. You have a short in the circuit that is on that fusible link. You need to get a wiring diagram and see what that circuit feeds. If the fuel pump isn't running than disconnect that circuit and see if it keeps the link from blowing. You may have to get a circuit breaker to install temporarily it to help find short. I have used a breaker and have gone directly to the fuse box and feed there to help isolate which circuit it is in. Good luck.

30 amp Starter/Ignition fuse keeps blowing when i turn the ignition key. The instrumentpanel lights are dim and then the fuse blows.

I am assuming you are talking about the circuit that powers the key switch. I'm showing a fuseable link to the starter relay instead of a fuse.
If it is the circuit that powers the switch, I would disconnect the switch and see if the fuse blows as each circuit is powered one at a time using a jumper wire. You can get 30amp circuit breakers that plug into the fuse slot to use while you are testing circuits.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to find out what is powered by that fuse since it is most everything on the car.

My 1987 Camry Alt Fuse Keeps Blowing. Brand New Alternator Brand New Battery . As Soon As I Change The 80 amp Fusible Link And Reconnect The Battery It Blows Immediately

I suggest to check if you have oil leaking onto your alternator or did you recently replace the alternator? Keep in mind that the voltage regulator is built into the alternator on vehicles and I have seen oil leaks internally short the alternator or poor quality aftermarket parts.

Also check ground and wires broke or in short.

1997 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel 4x4 keeps blowing a 40 amp fuse for the ign/acc when this happens I lose all my gauges and the wipers/turn signals/ radio/ both cig. acc. plugs and the starter. I also lose the...

I would start at the starter, it could have a short but it's only apparent when the engine gets it hot. you can try to pull the fuses to other things and see if the problems stop. this will at least give you an idea of where to look. also check fusible links and look for wire corrossion

Ingnition switch or actuator

On the 92 S-10 it sounds like the actuator rod that is connected to the ign switch on the bottom of the column could be possibly bent or the rack and pinion could be broken inside the column. The ign switch my be out of adjustment. You can try to adjust the ign switch on the bottom of the column yourself. If that does not work,my suggestion is if you are a novice is to take your vehicle to a mechanic to get the steering column fixed.

On the 91 blazer there are 2 fusible links that the battery cable connects to on the starter. Jack the vehicle up & use jack stands under the vehicle. With a test light check to see if there is power to the starter solenoid where the battery cable is hooked to. If there is power find the 2 wires that are on the same post that the battery cable is hooked to on the starter solenoid, they will have a white piece of round plastic (about a inch long) with a wire going into and out of it. This is the fusible link. Probe the wire before and after the round plastic. If there is power on one side and not the other side,you will need to replace the fusible link. You can use a inline fuse holder with a 25 to 30 amp fuse to replace the the fusible link.The fusible links supply power to the vehicle inside for the lights, radio, wipers,ign switch, etc.
