You most likely have a short in wires somewhere. That was happening with my '89 sidekick and eventually burnt up the computer. My short was found to be the emission wires were fusing together

Fuse s under hood keeps blowing. It is the inj/coil fuse

Try jumping the starter with the key on. If it doesn't blow. Check the start wire for chafing and grounding out. You can pull the starter relay, Try to start it, see if it blows,yes, it is between the fuse panel and fuel pump. no. Put it in and pull the fuel pump relay. Start it. If it blows, then it is some where between the fuse panel and starter. If you have one of those intelligent fuse panels, it could be that also. You can have the codes read for it. But it takes a scanner, not a code reader.

2003 Hyundai Tiburan Power windows aren't working. Replaced the fuse and it blew out immediately! Any ideas what to check/try? TIA

Any time a fuse blows it is because something else has a problem, it is just there to protect the other components of the electrical circuit. Since it is the power windows I would look at the power window motor. If you remove the door panels and access the power window motors you can disconnect the motors and them replace the fuse. If the fuse doesn't blow then the problem is one or both power window motors. If the fuse still blows then you have a wire that is grounded (bare wire touching metal) causing a short circuit and blowing the fuse.

Fuel pump driver module

Could have a problem with the fuel pump, partially blocked or seized and drawing too much current thru the FPDM. Also, pinched fuel line on either side of the pump or v dirty fuel filter could also cause pump to work too hard. Can you put a smaller fuse inline with pump motor, so that it blows before FPDM is damaged?

2006 Cadillac DTS Northstar blowing crank fuse...

Bad relay could be drawing excess amps. Bad starter can do this as well.

98 grand cherokee asd relay blowing fuse

The fuse it doing it's job, you have a short ( Wire that is connected to a ground, that draws too much power )

If you have an electrical schematic ( Repair manual ) find out which wires are connected to that fuse and check them for any chaffing, cuts, unnesassary twists, or corrosion.

If you have a ohm-meter, isolate the system ( by disconnecting the fuse, and other connections. Then check for any resistance on wires that should not be connected ( because you disconnected them ) by having one Lead on the wire's connector and the other meter-lead on your car's frame. A good wire will not have continuity if it is isolated.

My fuses keep popping any ideas?

You have not supplied sufficient information so here is one possibility.

If you replace a fuse you must use one that is the correct amperage for the circuit.

Check your owner's manual for the correct amperage fuse for the circuit concerned and make doubly sure the correct one is installed.

If it is the correct amperage for the circuit please supply more information on the problem including which fuse keeps blowing:

1. Is the fuse popping immediately you replace it in the fuse panel and switch power to the circuit or only after a period of time of operating the vehicle? For example, if it is a lighting fuse, does the new fuse blow immediately you switch on the light concerned?

2. What is the function on the vehicle that has the power cut when the fuse blows?

3. Has there been any work carried out on any part of the electrical system or on electrical components of your vehicle prior to this problem arising? If so what was done?

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.
