Why does the fuse keep blowing on my cub cadet ltx 1050


A fuse blows because the circuit it provide power to has a shorted component or wire.

Car running fine cut it off now want start make noises like battey is low but wont jump start


That's usually a corroded, burnt, crusty or loose battery terminal (connector), post, nut or wire. A seasoned mechanic knows how to check, tighten and clean all battery connection points and that lousy cheap cables can prevent a successful jump. You can check your battery in another car to see if it has the cold cranking amps necessary. A starter and a battery usually will go intermittent before going totally bad. it is dangerous around explosive fumes, such as a charging battery or fuel, but pass-touching or bumping the pos/neg jumper cables together for a quick test of battery and/or cable power has been the old way of testing for good power at the cables and battery. A good connection will spark very bright and loud - experience a good battery a few times and it is easily learned. Jumping from another battery without running the jumper engine will take a much stronger jump battery, even with good cables - starting the jumper car and letting it charge the dead battery for 3 or 4 minutes is usually enough for a good battery to come back enough to allow start. (Leave the cables on for the start attempt). Don't accidentally touch the cables together while still connected to either battery, they can fuse/weld and burn. Battery acid is toxic, smelly, explosive and will eat holes in your clothes. Don't drop a battery. Don't overcharge a battery, if it smells it is dangerous. I always blow away fumes as I am connecting battery cables. I turn off everything in the car when connecting them.

There are 2 fuse panels on your truck. i will assume you checked the fuses under your dash.. you need to check the fuse panel in the engine compartment on the left side near the fire wall. There are relays and fuses in there... Pretty sure you just blew a fuse! dont forget to check the larger feed fuses too.

I replACED THE PUMP ON MY 2002 SUBURBAN NOW THE FUEL GAGE SHOWS EMPTY NO MATTER HOW MUCH GAS IS IN THE TANK.


Perhaps you did not get the wires plugged back together properly. Or, perhaps you damaged the sending unit in the tank when you had it apart.

Or, perhaps you accidentally blew the fuse for it when you were changing the pump, or you have pinched some wires when you put it back together, causing a short, and the guage not to work.

You will have to find out if it is plugged in properly, with no pinched/cut wires, and check to see that there is power going to the gauge.

If there is power going to the guage, and it still doesn't work, then you will have to repair the sending unit in the tank.

I believe I shorted something from the alternator....


put a set of jumper cables on your battery, then quickly touch the 2 ends of the cables together, if there is a strong spark, then your battery is ok, if there is a very weak, or no spark, then you have shorted out the battery,, then, if battery ok, look for a small black box ,near the battery , it has a large fuse inside, you may have blown this......if everything is ok, then you have shorted out your alternator

Installing cd player in truck and nothing works on it


You probably blew a fuse in the back of the radio, or in the fuse box. Check both to be sure. And remember, always disconnect the battery before you do something with the wiring harness.

Igniton fuse continuously blows on my 1995-96 dodge neon


Do you have an aftermarket stereo installed? Well, try this. Remove the ground cable from the battery. Install a new fuse. if it continues, Remove the center console. and check the reverse wire connected to the shifter. It did the same thing to me and all it was, was that wire was touching other wires
