If its blowing the fuse may be water in the bulk head connector where the wires go threw the firewall or melted wires on that circuit have seen both cause this issue

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 20 Amp FP/ASD Fuse #21 keeps blowing.

hmm. lt look like there are poor joints in your wiring specially the groung wire. check the diagram of your auto. check the unit diagram for which the fuse blows. usually the fuse blow when there is a short circuit. if you look around you will find it.
good luck

Odd that your vehicle runs both systems on the same circuit and with only a 10 amp fuse. I'd try a 20 amp fuse to see if that works. Worth a shot, it shouldn't harm anything.

Look for a part of that wire cable that is rubbing on metal somewhere or that some mechanic pinched under a bolt or drilled a screw through. It may take some time but the closer you look at that wire from end to end the faster you will find the problem. Blowing a 30 amp fuse means something is shorting out pretty good so go find the short.

What causes fuse #5c in my 1996 buick park ave. to keep blowing?


A fuse that keeps blowing is probably the result of a wire that is grounded unintentionally. This would be the result of an exposed power wire touching the engine or body and grounding out. This would cause an excessive power draw and blow the fuse. The other option is that the fuse was lower amps than the original one. check the fuse diagram to see if the amps match up.

1999 dodge ram truck 1500 4x4 worked fine park it and next morning tried to start truck but all bell and lights come on but 30 amp ignition run fuse keeps blowing and truck wont start ran fine when...


This 30 amp fuse, If it blows when cranking, it is usually the starter dragging, if it blows by just turning the key on it is usually the fuel pump drawing too many amps.
I hope this helps.

Blowing 30 amp engine control fuse.


You say it eventually allows you to put new fuse in, do you mean when it sits for a while, a new fuse won't blow, but if it blows and you immediately replace it, it blows again instantly?

Check engine light: Turn the key on three times in succession and wait for the codes. What are the codes?
Brake ABS light: When did you last have the brakes serviced?
No AC: Do you park your truck/car in a garage? Check the AC housing for leaves and debis which will burn out the AC fan motor.
