My step son has a 96 S10 he replaced the pump a week ago, drove fine. after parking at the store it's popping fuses right and left? Anyhelp as always will be appreciated thanks Dave


Start looking for a short to ground. Check by noise (popping, sizzling), sight, (sparking) and feel-( a shorted wire may feel hot).
Check the engine compartment, especially around hot exhaust parts, under the car (see any loose wires?), and under the dash-listen and look.
You will need to identify the fuses, so as to know which circuit to check-or circuits if multiple fuses. Figure out what is common to all the blown fuses. Maybe the previous work of replacing the pump got some wires snagged or mashed and causing the shorts.

Why asd fuse keeps blown


You have a Chrysler , dodge , or Plymouth ? ASD Fuse supplies power to ASD relay ,if you have a Dodge , Chrysler or Plymouth vehicle . You have a short to ground , videos on you tube , how to find a electrical short ! ASD - auto shut down , this powers Ignition system , fuel injectors , O2 sensors . A short in any one of these systems will blow the fuse . O2 sensor wires get melted on exhaust pipes an manifolds ! That is if you have one of these make vehicles !

Diagram of a 2000 chevy express wiring of a starter


( one question i have is every time the ignition fuse blows do i need to replace the starter relay? ) NO ! You have a dead short to ground on one of the circuits that fuse feeds. Do you know how to find a short circuit ? Video's on youtube show how. The fuse that blows ,is it IGN - A 40 amp. located in the under hood fuse/ relay center ? That fuse feeds B+ voltage to the ignition switch ,which powers up other thing's ,fuse's etc.. Not just the starter relay ! I see five other fuse's that get power from that fuse when ignition switch is in the start or run position . In the I/P fuse panel the gauges fuse #4 10amp , air bag fuse #10 10amp , turn b/u fuse #16 20amp. , Plus trans fuse #20 10 amp ! Pull out these fuse an try to start the van. if the ignition fuse doesn't blow the problem is in one of these other fuse circuits. There is one more fuse that get's B+ power from the ignition switch and ign A fuse ,crank fuse fuse #8 10amp. this powers the control side of the starter relay .
You can find a free wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine . Under system click engine , under subsystem click starting. Click the search button then the blue link.
If you pull those fuse's i mention and it still blows the fuse look for a shorted ignition switch or wiring from ignition to the starter relay , not the relay itself. Park neutral safety switch . Isolate the circuit , pull the relay out of it's socket ,pull the crank fuse #8 in the I/P fuse box. with a ohm meter check to see if that part of the circuit is shorted to ground. Do you know how to do that ? Do you have a volt ohm meter ? You can buy one cheap at parts store .

95 ford mustang starter fuse keeps blowing. what should i do?


have you checked that the starter itself has not been grounded out (short in the wiring?)
The chances are this is what is causing your problem, start at the starter motor & follow the wires, check every single one, if you have a bare section that comes in contact with the body or anything else metal it will ground out that wire & cause the fuse to blow every single time even if you were to double the fuse resistance I.E. if the fuse is a 20 & you put in a 40 it will still blow - that last part is ill advice - never put a higher amperage fuse in a socket that was intended for a lower amperage fuse - it could cause a fire & serious injury, check all your wiring from the starter you have a short in the system somewhere it's just a pain in the a

Keeps blowing the starter fues


Hi, if you're talking about the 10 amp fuse #12, pull out the starter relay and put in a fresh fuse. Try to start the truck and then check the fuse. If the fuse is OK, get a new starter relay. If the fuse burned without the relay, there is a short between the ignition switch and the starter relay. If you have a manual transmission, you can further isolate the short by pulling the connector off the switch above the clutch pedal. Put another fuse in and try again. If the fuse burns, the short is between the ignition switch and the clutch switch. If not, it's between the clutch switch and the starter relay. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Turned ignition on, heard a loud pop and everything went off. tried ignition again, got nothing, no battery turn over, nothing.


Start by checking the fuses and then the battery connections, this sounds like a fuse poped maybe a main fuse, if its a fuse then replace the fuse if it pops again then theres a dead short somewhere, these are famous for bad starters and starter relays going bad, so see when fuse pops again if its when key is turned on or when you try to crank the motor, if its when cranking then its mostlikely the relay or starter, this main fuses would be in the engine compartment fuses box.

10amp fuse keeps popping


check each of the terminals of those bulb you mentioned. wonder if there's a relay associated to this circuit, check for short if this is the case. remove all the light bulbs [of course - the dash may not be necessary (it's a PITA) & let's hope that it's not the culprit]. visually inspect those bulbs & replace if something unusual. put back the relay if it has no short, turn on the switch, let's hope the dash lights up & it won't blow the fuse anymore, otherwise look for uninsulated wire touching the chasssis or ay metal part of the car. you may continue replacin the bulbs.
