SOURCE: Does anyone have a schematic for a 2003 Kia Sedona ignition circuit? The 15amp ignition fuse keeps blowing

Go to autozone.com sign up to be a member it's free. Go to repair manual for your model and year and you can look at wiring diagrams or print them out. I have checked they do have a ignition diagram.

What could cause Ignition 1 no 2 fuse to blow intermittently


aI dont recommend it but you can try a higher amperage fuse to see if the problem happens. Fuses are really not currently limited, they are there for short circuits, if yours is blowing intermittantly, you might have a connection probelm etc.

Terrano vg30e electrical issue...


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 have a dawoo matiz car .790cc year 2000.wich keeps blowing the e.c.m fuse and this cuts off the fuel supply. sometimes it starts ok then suddenly it blows again i checked the fuel pump and seems


Check exactly when you do have a blown fuse as you are driving and in turning or as you driving normally. Also check the wires between E.C.M and Engine. The fuel Supply cuts off surely as soon as the E.C.M Fuse is blown because the fuel supply is going through the E .C. M.

EMC1 fuse keeps blowing immediately in 02 chevy express 3500LS 5.7L engine


That fuse powers the pink wire that runs to the coil, injectors, and pcm.
If the short isn't obvious, I disconnect everything I can from the wire and then put in a fresh fuse. I turn the key on and check the fuse. If it blows, I know it's something I haven't disconnected or the wire itself. If it doesn't blow, I start reconnecting things one at a time untl the fuse blows again.

Electrical fault somewhere


Hi,
I think the problem is not the alternator but the conection in the 120Amp fuse to the main engine fuse box.
The actual contacts to the spade fuse are enclosed and the contact area cannot be cleaned (scraped) easily. The fuse does not pull out like the rest but is bolted in with two bolts (one 8mm and one 10mm) No one knows this at first, release the bolts on either side and work the spade fuse up and down many times to score the contact area.
When I first tested it it was showing some 20 ohms with a high impedance meter but after it was cleaned it showed close enough to zero.
The high resistance connection on the 120Amp fuse may have caused a volt drop (with all systems on ie engine, air, wipers, and headlights) sufficient to drop out the engine relay and it conk it out. It starts again readily but the low voltage may cause the stop light warning light to come on.
Volvo had the car for two weeks and couln't fault it after I did the clean and replaced the engine relay - but they didn't charge me - so good on them. They quoted me $1400 to fit a new alternator saying they had seen the problem before and they replaced the alternator and the cable which may have inadvertantly fixed the bad connection on the 120Amp fuse.
I worked for Volvo Truck for a couple of years as a contract Production Engineer but when sales went down I was moved on - guess I was too much of a smart arse. Renault owns them now - predictable I should have thought.
