2002 dodge blows 40 amp fuse

I have the same issue and it is coming down to this-- the wiring is wrong to the oem plug. i looked up two wiring dia grams and they matched but the oem seven pin plug on the truck wire diagram is wired correct to the diagram on the dust/flip up cap on the truck plug. but it is different to the other two that i have found on line. not sure what dodge was thinking when the wired it? hooked up to 5 trailers and the same thing the brakes are on instantly. and the running lights do not work. i think i need to change the wires to the diagams that i found on line.because dodge has the 12v charging wire to the brakes and the brakes are the 12 v charging. the ground is wrong and the running lights are wrong. they need to swapped around also to match the wiring diagams that i have found. was there an issue with this on the dodge 7 pin factory wired plugs?

This 30 amp fuse, If it blows when cranking, it is usually the starter dragging, if it blows by just turning the key on it is usually the fuel pump drawing too many amps.
I hope this helps.

My 96 Caravan had this problem as well as the passenger headlight would not come on. It turned out to be pinched and shorted wires under the battery box where the wires plug into the power box and computer. It happened the first time driving away from the dealer the day I bought it! It got worse from there.

I would start at the starter, it could have a short but it's only apparent when the engine gets it hot. you can try to pull the fuses to other things and see if the problems stop. this will at least give you an idea of where to look. also check fusible links and look for wire corrossion

Fuses only blow if-Old,Overheated or you have a Short circuit.
That should be any easy fix,to the extent that there aren't many 40 Amp Fuses and you will need a wiring diagram to follow the problem from the fuse to the cause. If you know what fuse it is, you can guess,but I wouldn't recommend that,it will be time consuming and maybe costly ,if you don't have a test procedure to follow and throw parts at it.
Don't replace the fuse.Their expensive and will keep blowing.

Ignition switch fuse terminal is blowing red 40 amp fuse when i try to replace it


A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

20 Amp FP/ASD Fuse #21 keeps blowing.


hmm. lt look like there are poor joints in your wiring specially the groung wire. check the diagram of your auto. check the unit diagram for which the fuse blows. usually the fuse blow when there is a short circuit. if you look around you will find it.
good luck
