    Hey thanks for that advice do not know who you are however if you put a high amp fuse in and it is a wiring problem instead of the fuse blowing a fire will ignite, I may be a women however I know this will happen. What I did was trouble shoot my car and found that the ignition fuse that kept blowing was also the fuse for my starter, hmmm so what did you think that I did, that is right I got all dirty and replaced the starter, once again I am a girl..and guess what my car started right up and is running great.

Surge. replace it with a higher amp fuse. check to see if there any after market additions in the car where there is wiring going into the fuse box

I have a 2004 chevy surban that keeps blowing the ignition fuse what can cause this


You have a direct short to ground on that power feed circuit . You need to find a power distribution diagram to see what all gets is power from that fuse . Isolate the circuits till the fuse doesn't blow any more , then trace out that circuit that blows the fuse .

Which Ignition fuse ? Which fuse box is it in ? under hood , passenger compartment ?
IGN A
40A
Ignition Switch RUN, START, RUN/START/ACCY
IGN B
40A
Ignition Switch RUN/ACC, RUN/START
Could be ignition switch problem , Chevy has had problems with them .

Asked about my Dodge earlier 77 won't stay on once warm now I notice the fuses arnt lighting up once I test them could that cause my car to shutoff once warm


fuses don't "light up"
they either convey current (good)or they don't ( blown)
A fuse blows when there is excessive current going through it and it blows to protect the wiring and equipment it allows current to
so any fuse that does it's job and blows will stop something from working
However as from your statement you have a dodge 1977 model which suggests that it has carburetor/s fitted and is not fuel injected (EFI) and again from your description It starts , runs until it reaches operating temperature , then shuts down
IT that is correct, I would be looking at the automatic choke adjustment as if it is still on when it warms up then the engine will be running to rich and will stop
Now if the fuse is in the ignition circuit and you have a faulty coil that goes bad and draws excessive current, then that fuse will blow and cut the ignition
But it all comes back to the question ---will the car start again after it has stopped without replacing the fuse
if it does then fuses have no part in the engine stopping so you need to look else whaere for the reason the fuse is blowing

I have a 1993 Celica that ran fine, cut it off and when I tried to start it again it would crank but wouldnt start?


Your ignition module or wires to it are fried. If you keep putting fuses in, you will melt the wiring. Remove the module and using the guidelines of the manufacturer test it. If it is bad, or it is old and you haven't changed it in a while, go ahead and replace it. Before you do, when you remove it turn the key on and see if the fuse still blows. If it does, it is the wiring or something else. My bet is the module.

Every time I turn the key to start the motor it blows the 30 amp fuse what is the cause and how do I fix it


if the fuse is blowing when you turn key to start position then this is where to look for the fault ,between the ignition switch and the relay then the other side of the relay to the starter motor solonoid

2000 Grand Voyager blowing the ignition fuse


Was the old fuel pump bad? It might be worth the cost to replace the ignition switch. The wires to the fuel pump would be a second guess if the old pump was bad and burnt the wires before the fuse went. When you eliminated the fuel pump you also eliminated the wires to the pump and it started. Then you replaced the pump, but not the wires. The ignition switch is the other end of the circuit.

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.

98 stratus won't start


Check the fuel shutoff valve. to see if it is on. press the reset button to do this. if it stays on. The answer could be pinched wires (a short) from the fuse wiring back towards the shutoff valve. if the valve shuts off try checking for current with a test light. if no current . The valve is bad. it seems like a short or open circuit on the fuel system wiring.

Blows fuse wont start


More than likely its being caused by a short-circuit to ground in the wiring in your Cranking Circuit.

If it blows the fuse immediately after installing the fuse, its probably a hot-wire. If it blows it the second you try to crank it over, its probably one of the wires between your ignition and the Starter Relay.

To track down the bad wire you'll need a Wiring Schematic for the vehicle and either a Digital Volt/Ohm-Meter or Test-Light and a basic understanding of wiring which is... honestly a little hard to explain over the internet. However, that is the only course that can be taken without taking the vehicle to a qualified Dealership Technician.
