Question about 1997 Chevrolet Suburban
I have a 1994 chevy k2500 Suburban with. 6.5 Diesel and the instrument fuse keeps blowing when I turn the key to the on position. When I disconnected the glow plug relay the fuse did not blow. Also while running with the fuse blown the alternator is not charging the system. Any ideas where to start. Thanks in advance.
Did u replace the relay just a curious question, sometimes they have rust and water in the inside of the relay but my guess would be that you have a bare wire rubbing somewhere, causing the fuse to blow, anything significant has happened before that issue?

sounds like a mouse has got in and chewed the cables,their is no easy fix from what i can think of but check all the wires and connections in case water has got into it,or snow if your in alaska.its fifteen years old now so its possible that some insulation has broken down or a wiring loom has chaffed somewhere underneath

Have you changed the air and fuel filters lately? Try that first,making sure you follow the procedures in your owners manual for the fuel filters exactly as they tell you. I neglected to do that with my 1982 1/2 ton 6.2 and my son was left stranded in the Maine woods in the middle of the night. Also pick up Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual. It has proved to be a godsend for me because I haven't been able to find anyone here that knows anything about those motors in my area. It is Part # 10330 and can be gotten anywhere they sell car repair info or self help books. It has a good section on diagnostics as well as tips, hints and help for the diyer.It will cost about $20.

Chances are, you have a short somewhere in the wiring that is causing too much amperage to pass through the fuse causing it to blow. Use a decent voltmeter that will show opens and shorts to test continuity with the wires that run to the ignition.

You are correct,now to find out what circuit is blowing the fuse.If the car was in a accident check that area first.Chances are its interrior or running lights.lets start with interrior lights,install new fuse turn on interrior lights on for 1/2 hour.if fuse blows remove interrior lamp lenses and look for one of the hot wires to be shorted out on the body.To check the tail lights turn off the interrior lights and turn on the running lights.If fuse blows start with any damaged areas,check the trunk area for damage to the wire harness,if you have a trailer hitch chcek the trailer harness for damage.theres no easy fix here,hope I have been some help.Thanks for using FixYa......Ray
