Why the fuse burn and the car turn off , I change the fuse and the car turn on again


It sounds like a dead short somewhere in the ignition circuit or the "main" circuit. If everything else on the car dies (lights, chimes, instrument panel, etc) when that fuse blows, that would most likely be the main fuse you've identified. It's going to be a serious pain to find that short, and I'm sorry I don't have any real leads as to what it could be other than tracing the wiring back. Whatever you do, DO NOT replace the fuse with one of higher amperage... The wiring will surely melt or even worse, catch fire!

'99 Ford Crown Vic LX: #12 30A Maxi fuse blows seconds after starting or ignition turned on.


i had this problem with my 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo with the brake lights it kept popping fuses right after the ignition was turned on try putting a higher amp fuse in place of the old one that keeps blowing then check for shorts to the starter and check grounds and wires and also the transmission issue check the fluid and then if the fluid is fine change the transmission filter the filter may have not gotten replaced when the transmission was rebuilt and may be clogged or dirty

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.
