    Before I tried putting in a new fuse in #1 slot..the air bag warning light would remain off for just a little while and then blow the fuse..Now when I replace the fuse it blows when I start it.. Is this the faulty Air bag module ncausing the problem?? That makes sense, however, I know nothing about this..your thoughts???

    Does your owners manual tell what circuit that fuse runs?

I would do exactly what polarcycle has recommended first before going to the air bag module.

What is on the #1 fuse circuit? What ever it is is bad, or shorted out in the wiring.

    you need to unplug everything on that circuit. Then plug everything in one at a time and keep checking the fuse. When the fuse blows, it will be the last thing you plugged in.

Fuse 18 keeps blowing


Once a fuse blows,it does so for a reason
Common Sense
In a 60 year driving career you have maybe 6 fuses blow
Replacing them 5 out of 6 time they blow again
Ask yourself why
You need to find the most logical item in that circuit
& start testing & that usually requires a wiring diagram
or you have no map or now where to start any testing.
Something overloaded a circuit find it & replace it or
resolve the wiring issue

EFI fuse keeps blowing in 1998 Camry


There is only ONE reson why a fuse blows: Something is overloading the circuit and drawing more amperage than the fuse is designed to handle. This is what is known as an "overload" or a "short circuit".

Plesase read the following two articles:
Where's the fuse?
What else could be wrong?

If after reading these two articles, you think you would like to try your hand at tracking this down and fixing it yourself, and you are sure you have the correct equipment (as listed in the articles), let me know and I will help walk you through it.

My daughter has a 1998 Avenger as soon as the car starts it blows a 30 amp fuse in the engine compartment which is simply marked ENGINE. After this fuse blows the car will not even try to start the lights...


sounds like you have a short in the electrical system between the ignition and the fuse box. it might be metal to metal somewhere inbetween in the wiring that is makeing the fuse blow out everytime

My fuse number 8 keeps blowing in my 1996 ford mustang. I dont know much about cars. Can anyone help me please???


You owners manual will tell all the things protected by that fuse.Unplug everything the book list,put in a new fuse and if it does'nt blow then start plugging the harnesses back in an the defective part will make the fuses blow.If it blows with everything unplugged,then the problem is in you harness.Have fun!

98 v6 mustang is over heating its not the thermostate or fan


Several things ... best guess, in order:
1. (very likely) Radiator fan is not blowing (turn on car and a/conditioner.
When compressor kicks in, the radiator fan must blow). If it ims not blowing,
the radiator fan motor may be burned out ($40).
2. Check / replace "cooling fan" fuse ($1) and / or "cooling fan" relay switch
($7).
3. Radiator clog (possible)
Hope this helps!

1998 plymouth engine fuse burns


first place i would start looking is the wiring to the O2 Sensors for shorts to ground or
in case the O2 Sensor itself is shorted, try disconnecting the sensors to see if the fuse stops blowing.
this is just a place to start, there are other problems that will blow that fuse. good luck.

My air conditioning blows hot air. Won't accept


Is the system low on Freon? If not, you most likely have a bad A/C compressor, or a bad low pressure switch.
