There is a wire grounding out somewhere. Start from the fuel pump (u know that is good) and follow the wires inspecting them carefully for any chafing or corrosion. It should go up thru the floor around the back of the back seat. Pop the seat out and continue looking at the wires taking the wrapping off as you go. It may be bad under the carpet where water collects from boots and shoes, so look at these areas carefully for corrosion. Happy hunting!!

Check the wire to it for chafing and or pinched to the frame or body part. There's a short there somewhere.

SOURCE: E.E.C fuse keeps blowing in 1991 Ford Explorer

if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing

sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go

SOURCE: fuel pump fuse blowing

replace the fuel pump, it is drawing to much current, this is common when the pump bearings get worn out, also make sure you replace the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank connection, it will be burnt..

SOURCE: fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on 99 dodge neon

Usually if a fuse blows when applying something else( brakes) indicates they are on the same circuit. Verify the brake lights don't work when the fuse is out or blown. If lights still are working then it's probably not related. If on same circuit then the extra load of the brakes is enough to blow the fuse. Insure you are putting in the correct fuse. Also, this indicates you fuel pump is in a strain either due to restricted fuel filter or worn pump. Replaceing the fuel filter now will only buy you a little time before the pump goes on out. It's blowing fuses because it's drawing more amps in order to run, but always replace filter when replacing pump.

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse. Why?


This normally happens due to short in the wirings.Or if someone has connected a stereo or some other electrical contrivance to the wiring harness (bundle), either under the dash or under the hood.To confirm this unplug the fuel pump wiring connections and insert new fuse.Then start the car and see,if still the fuse blows then its a short in wiring.But if the fuse does not blows then its faulty fuel pump relay or faulty fuel pump itself.So first replace the fuel pump relay and see,if the fuel still blows then its faulty fuel pump.But if the fuse not blowing then relay was the faulty part.The fuel pump relay located on the fuse box under the hood.---------This troubleshooting tips will help you locate the fault and solve it.-------Thanks.Helpmech.

My 2004 dodge neon keeps blown the fuel pump fuse. Can some one help


It's either the fuel pump having the problem or you have short in the electrical wiring going back to the pump. Make sure the fuse is the proper size for the fuel system. Hope this will help you.

If it is working for a time and just blowing once in a while you probably need to replace the fuel pump. If it blows as soon as you put it in, then look for a short circuit in the fuel pump wiring.

Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on 99 dodge neon. Changed relay, but didn't help. Fuel pump or something else? It mainly does it when you hit the brakes.

2002 Dodge Neon 20 amp FP/ASD fuse #21 keeps blowing


It appears that it is part of the fuel pump circuit, so I would concentrate on wiring harness & connector at fuel pump, clean it real good, and apply dielectric grease to the connection, as well as the fuel pump relay, connector & harness.
