Question about 1989 Chevrolet C1500
Starts & runs fine but blows that fuse when turning it off
According to Dan B. on answers yahoo.com: "missing spacer. The heavy wire from your alternator goes directly to the battery. If that wire is grounded, you are sending battery power directly to ground - blowing that link. That wire is not a ground wire - I don't care what the color of the insulation is - black or red. "

Check the wires to the distributer or to the modules could be poor or no conection. If you can turn the car over but no spark it's probably something to do with ignition, distributer, module, or wiring to the ignition.

SOURCE: wont start
You could try replacing the two fusible links down by the starter. They look like two black pieces of rubber on the wires. Just cut them out and splice the wires back together. If that's your problem it should start. If you unplug the neutral safety switch from the tranny the car should start if that is the problem. Hope this helps.

sounds like a short in the wiring from the fuse and the fuel injector junction block. GM like most fuel injection systems control injector firing by the computer providing ground to each injector in pairs or individually. The fuel injector fuse provides power to the injectors using splices therefore enabling one wire to feed 6 injectors. A shorted wire at any of these wires will blow the fuse. On one rare incident I found a faulty computer caused the fuse to blow. A shorted injector will just cause a rough running problem due to the injector stuck either open or closed.
