I have a 2004 ford explorer and it keeps blowing ignition fuse cant seem to find out why. could someone help me please

An IGNITION coil failure is the most probable cause for a 30 amp fuse (F2-116, CJB) to repeatedly operate... If my drawings are correct you have a coil to check on EACH plug.

"COP" (coil on plug)... ignition system...
A simple resistance check to ground ought to reveal the failing COIL.
using a multi-meter as illustrated below... "Ohm" setting).

Central Junction Box:
Wiper F2 48 CJB ... 10 amp... has no relation to your
30 amp CJB ignition system fuse.

Check the physical connections at the bottom of your steering column... and make sure your battery connections are clean and tight...

Failing any of that you probably have a bad ignition switch as well

Cluster fuse blows out

You need to take the car to an Auto Electrician. This is a clear case of a stripped positive + wire making contact with the body of the car thus shorting out the fuse. Do not attempt to put in a higher amp fuse to try and resolve the matter. The fact that the fuse blows if a safety measure that prevents the car's wiring system from completely burning out. Save yourself this headache and take the car for an electrical system test. Explain to the Auto Electrician that this happens when you put the car in reverse - and he my have to completely rewire the reverse light and reverse switch in the gearbox.

Replace 15 amp fuse to a 30

NO,NO,NO ! Fuses are electrical protection for the cars wiring installing a higher amp-age fuse takes longer to blow so your wiring gets hotter and starts to melt the insulation and shorts to other wires eventually burning up the harness. With a amp meter test the circuit to see how much power is needed to keep the circuit going if over rated (15 amp circuit taking 20 amps) then install a cycling circuit breaker 10 amp this will blow and cool and blow again continually then with a magnetic amp meter (Gauss meter) you can locate your short the source voltage causes the amp meter to jump as the fault occurs when you pass it meter will stop working.

I have a 2006 Impala the 10 amp a/c fuse blows. I was told by i needed a new compressor. So i put one in and still have the same problem.

I would start by checking the wiring from the a/c control head all the way to the compressor as it is most likely a short causing the fuse to blow. You will most likely need a wiring schematic of the air conditioning system and a dvom/volt meter.

Have no power out of the trailer plug 4or 7 prong,where should i look for the trouble?

Not sure which part you mean no power.

For the New Body style 2004 ( not a Heritage or Lightning model )

If both Stop / Turn pins & the parking lamps, might want to check the ground pin to make sure it is good ( or what you are using for ground on the test light / meter ).

The trailer tow parking lamp circuit is fuse #10 to the parking lamp relay

The stop / turn circuits also have fuses on each one, Fuse #36 & Fuse # 42 ( R & L ).

The 7 pin has fuses for the battery charge pin ( hot in run position ) and the reverse circuit ( hot in run & when in reverse ), Reverse is also fuse # 10 to the trailer tow reversing lamp relay & the battery charge pin is fuse # 106 to the trailer tow battery charge relay.

Could be all the fuses are blown, or what you are using for ground on the meter / test light is not a good ground.

Brake and horn fuse keeps blowing out on a 93 civic

You could use a test meter or light to see if current is coming thru even when the system is off. That would indicate a ground somewhere like a broken wire rubbing on something. Otherwise it wouldn't hurt to put a higher amp fuse in there; I wouldn't however exceed 10 amps on what's recommended.

I have a 1998 chevy blazer (s-10) 4.3L 4x4 it keeps blowing the #15 (10amp) 4wd fuse, if you put a 10 amp fuse in it will blow the minute you turn it on ,then we put a 15 amp in it seems to do it when you...

check transfer case electrical switch, sometime if it bad it will also blow the fuse. don't recommend you put any higher fuse than recommend, If the fuse blow there is a short some where and by putting higher amp fuse you might short or burn something else beside the fuse. if that check out than check your transfer case motor, might lock up and not allowing the motor to turn instead it short the fuse. don't drive the car, just leave it in park, put correct fuse amp back in and unplug transfer case electric switch and turn the key on (dont start the car) and see if the fuse blow; if not plug it back in and see if it blow the fuse. if that is not the case, unplug transfer case wire, and do the same and see if it blow the fuse.
