Your key ignition cylinder switch may have a short in the thin wiring causing this. Tilt wheel on any GM car seems to wear the wiring out in a few years. I have seen hundreds of these cases in the past. A pro is needed to inspect this problem more than likely

Well u will need an amp meter that will check out the current thru fuse with nothing on " multi function" besides the motor running and see if it solves your problem and tell us your current reading .

first thing to do is to have the alternator checked out as the fuse blowing may indicate an internal short and therefore the battery is not being charged ( 3 starts and needs a jump)

I would start at the starter, it could have a short but it's only apparent when the engine gets it hot. you can try to pull the fuses to other things and see if the problems stop. this will at least give you an idea of where to look. also check fusible links and look for wire corrossion

I have a lhs 1996 Chrysler. The car wont start and the engine fuze burns out.


I also have a 96 LHS that randomly blows the 20 amp ECM fuse. If this is what you are referring to, the problem may be in one of your ECM sensors. 1-Start by unplugging all ECM sensors (Temp, Cam, Crank, 2-O2, TPS, etc.) and replace the fuse. 2-Crank the starter (the car will not start) and see if the fuse blows. If it does you probably have an electrical problem with the ECM. 2-If the fuse does not blow, plug in only the cam sensor and start the car; it will idle rough and the check engine light will come on. If the fuse blows, the problem is the cam sensor or wiring to it. 3-Continue plugging in sensors one at a time and try starting. When the fuse blows, you will know which sensor and/or wiring to the sensor to check. This process of elimination has worked twice for me.

My efi fuse keeps blowing on my 87 celica st


you can try a bigger fuse and if it still blows it then you have a short in one of the wires. i then you will have to hunt down the short that can take awhile.

30 amp ignition fuse in engine compartment blows at start


It sounds like a bad ignition switch or something is grounding out.Try to isolate the problem to key positions.See if the fuse blows when you turn the key to ACC(when your dash lights come on without starting)If the fuse does not blow then when you go to start it and it blows it could be one of many problems,the more common ones could be ignition switch,wiring,starter relay,starter soleniod,or perhaps the starter itself is shorting out,this can sometimes happen when a starter goes bad.

ENG CONT FUSE BLOWS CONSTANTLY


check the wire harness to the ecm... which is located under the radio... if you , like I , live in a wet / snowy climate... the water /ice from your boots melts and collects near the harness. Maybe it corroded a wire and is causing it to short?

Verify fuse is correct size, then see what you are turning on else when it blows. Fuel pumps are designed to pump up then shut off, until needed when starting and running. It might not be shutting off and staying running when vehicle is not running. Make sure ground circuit is in good shape and positive side as well. Does this blow fuses when you go to start, or does it start and run for awhile then blow?
