Check out the wiring. The bump may have made some connections loos or may have shaken up the wires and wires that are exposed may have hit each other or the metal part of the car which caused a short and in turn caused a fuse to blow.

97mits mirage 1.5 blows 30amp fuse as soon as ignition key hits turnover position? Suspect bad ground


Try disconnecting the wires from the starter and try it again. If it blows the fuse again, then your ignition switch it'self is probably shorted. If it doesn't blow the fuse, your starter is grounded on the inside and needs to be replaced.

30amp AM 2 fuse blows as soon you turn on the key & car will not start


This is common about this time on these Camrys. I own three. The AM2 fuse is blowing because a coil, capacitor, or supressor has gone bad in the distributor. To test this disconnect the two wire connectors to the distributor. Replace the AM2 fuse. Turn the ignition. If the fuse doesn't blow. The distributor.

Eng. controller Fuse keeps blowing when I turn the ignition on to start my car


Have you checked your wiring to starter? It sounds like the power wire going to starter has loosened up.That would cause fuse to blow and also the way you described that the car died. Or even check to see that the red wire going to starter hasn't gotten dinged or melted by the exhaust. Anything that would cause it to short out.

Stop running while doing 65mpr on freeway, first started dieing with fast left turn, got worse started dieing when i hit a bup in road, then started dieing with right or lift fast turns and bups in road,...


Check the Timing belt and the fuses. If you have installed anything that has wires that you connected into the fuse block check those to make sure one hasn't come free and shorted a fuse on the fuse block or Power distribution box in the engine compartment. Also, and I know this is a long shot, check the oil level in the engine to make sure your bump is working and that the sensor is responding correctly. I had a sensor go out once and when the engine got low on oil it didn't register but when I made turns you could hear it and feel it with a lose of power.

The car died on me in the middle or the road . The #1 fuse blows


Check your ignition/fuel pump relay---it's with all the other relays in a dash tray---it's ORANGE---check it for dead-short.

2005 dodge neon--while car is going up grade all of a sudden she went dead--no sputter just dead---nothing happens when key is turned--no clicks...using a ohm meter i found the under the hood 30amp starter...


It could be a bad starter.
And a dead short within the starter would cause the fuses to blow as you mentioned.

I would pull the starter off, and take it into a local parts store to be tested.
If it does pass, you have taken that part of the problem out of the equation, and can begin looking for other causes.
