    20 amp fuse blows sometimes at start up never when running. I think it might be the fuel pump drawing too much power at start up but only speculation until I throw a meter on it

20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing on my 2003 dodge stratus


SOunds like a closed short in the ignition system. The actual ignition could be at fault. The starter may be at fault. Pinched or exposed wiring touching the chassis or another live wire may be the cause. Check your manual to be sure the 20 amp fuse is the proper fuse for the ignition system. It may just be to low of an amp and may be a 25 to 60 amp fuse or more. Only use the recommended size of fuse as using too high a amperage in a fuse can cause bigger problems if the fuse does not blow in time. These fuses serve a purpose to save the electrical and electronic parts form unnecessary damage.

Seems to me you have a short to ground what you can do is unplug the fuel pump connector then replace the fuse to see if it still blows if it does not then you need to replace the fuel pump and sender if it does blow then you will need to trce the wire back to the fuse panel to see where it is shorted ....

I have a 2004 dodge stratus that has power to lights but does not turn over when i try to crank even after jumping it off.


Hi.

Check ignition switch fuse. This is a 20 Amps. see that it has not blown. In 2004 Fuse should be nr 8 in the power box under the hood (newer models #24).

Once you are sure that battery, fuse and wires are OK, check starter and ignition switch. Check if there is 12V to starter while cranking. If there is power and the starter motor does not turn, then the motor is gone.
If there is no power to starter motor when you crank, then the ignition switch located inside the steering column may need replacement. Before repairing, try reading error codes with a code scanner.

My 1999 dodge stratus did the same thing. Its a short in the starter solenoid its attached to the starter. all you have to do is change the starter.

20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing


I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

1998 Dodge Stratus


i think you have corroded wires around the fuel pump harness creating a short circuit which is probably blowing the fuse.

98 stratus won't start


Check the fuel shutoff valve. to see if it is on. press the reset button to do this. if it stays on. The answer could be pinched wires (a short) from the fuse wiring back towards the shutoff valve. if the valve shuts off try checking for current with a test light. if no current . The valve is bad. it seems like a short or open circuit on the fuel system wiring.
