There are a bunch of places it could be. Look for anywhere the wires go over, around or under the frame, trans bell housing. It could be a component that is bad causing a short also. I would look for a bad wire short to ground though as this is the most likely cause.

1997 jeep grand Cherokee keeps blowing 20 amp fuse under the hood cranks but no start

A fuse that keeps blowing means you have a short. Inspect the wiring that goes to the fuel pump. It can also mean there that the pump is defective.

I have a 6200 and the Pto stopped working and the warning lights on the dash are constant.i have found that the fuse keeps blowing it's a 30 amp fuse which is a main one I think. Any ideas

Electric PTO. The motor is probably shorted. Easiest way to see is unplug it, put the fuse back in. If the fuse doesn't blow, replace the motor. If it does blow, trace the wires to the short in them.

What could it be when put auto in drive suddenly fuse blows under hood?

Which fuse is blowing? Look at a wiring diagram for that fuse circuit. If that fuse only controls one component, the component may be faulty or the wiring circuit has a problem.

If the fuse circuit controls several components, you may need to disconnect/reconnect components one at a time to try and see which component or wiring circuit is faulty. Hopefully when you unplug the faulty component, the fuse will no longer blow. It is possible that test would not be conclusive because every time you unplug something you lower the amp draw on the fuse.

Had a dead short at pos. bat terminal.. it smoked thats how i found it... fixed it but now no spark and no fuel... what happened??? turns over.. lights are bright but nothin...HELP ME PLEASE

In the power distribution center, black fuse box under the hood next to the battery, there is an "engine" fuse. Controls power from the battery to the computer and engine electrical systems. A battery short would very possibly blow this maxi fuse (30 amp?).

2000 Jeep Cherokee #7 10 amp fuse

You will have to check the positive wire of the wires that go to the parking and side marker lights for a short to ground.Check the easy things first like the bulbs for these lights.It could just be a shorted bulb.You can remove one at a time and see when the fuse stops blowing.You an get a short finder from a part store and save the trouble of getting a bunch of fuses.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Jeep keeps blowing auto shutdown fuse

Yes I had the same problem. The wires that plug into the sensor at the catatytic converter were rubbing against the drive shaft untill they finally wore through causing the short against drive shaft. repaired wires and it fixed everything

30 amp fuse/ in box under hood

The 30 amp fuse is most likely for your starter. Check that the red thick wire (could be black as well) leading to the starter and starter solenoid is properly attached and is not touching anything that would short it out and therefore blow the 30 amp fuse. The short may even be inside the starter in which case it will need to be replaced or repaired. Hope this helps.
