A short in the gauge or the wiring ! If your not up on automotive electrical systems I'd take it to someone who is ! You a need wiring diagram, a volt ohm meter , and a component location diagram. Trace the wire from the fuse threw connectors and anywhere that is easy to access with the ohm meter till you find the short to ground !

Impossible to tell without knowing what fuse number is blowing, along with some basic electrical troubleshooting.
Common suspects include:
altered factory stereo
Aftermarket alarm system
chafed wiring
defective instrument lamp
defective instrument panel

The 20amp ga/idle fuse powers a hot fuel module which powers the oil pressure switch, the fuel pump relay, and the fuel gauge in the tank.
Any of the four components including the fuel pump can blow the fuse.

Air conditioner, fuel gauge, and temp gauge all stopped working at the same time


Three possibilities;
All related to blown fuses,

1- Fuse blown in the engine compartment LH.
2- Fuse blown in the cabin forward LH below the dashboard (below your legs left hand).
3- Fuse blown in the harness (wire bundles) below the dashboard very easy to reach with your hands “just look underneath steering wheel ".

U said " The air conditioner blows, but the air is not cold.
" Yes only the fan working which might receiving power independent all from those other mentioned things.
If all fuses OK. Then look for broken wires.

Chevy silverado keeps blowing fuses


Your 20 amp fuse will not blow if glowplug wire shorts. each plug draws 15 amps which is 120 amps total.I think there are in line fuses for them. Try to wring out where each output from the fuse goes, disconnect all and reconnect one at a time till it blows.That should point to your problem process of illumination! Good Luck!!
