98 lexus es300 a/c fuse #24 keeps blowing


This fuse may serve the compressor clutch. Were you using the AC at the time? If yes, you may need to replace the compressor clutch. There are also a few other circuits on this fuse. See diagrams at the link below.

Heater doesn t blow out any heat or air


If it is not blowing at all your problem is with the fan. It is mounted up under the passenger side. Typically about 6 screws hold on the cover and the fan is right under it. Pretty easy fix. When the fan is out I would test it first....after thought here...did you check the fuses?

Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on my 95 Crown Vic


Using a smaller fuse should make the problem happen more often.
A mechanic would unplug the pump harness at the tank and check the circuit for high resistance or a short to ground.
If nothing is found in the harness, I would suspect the pump in the tank.

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse on my 2001 dodge van 5.2 after driving a few miles


These trucks are bad to chaff wires.if it runs 15 -20 min. in park but blows the fuse within a few miles of driving you almost definitely have a wire shorting out. this can be tedious to find. good luck

99 cougar, new batt, found broken ignition fuse and replaced, will start with a jump,runs for a few mins then sputters and spits,, can keep it running by fluttering the gas, when it dies must get a jump.


Fuses don't simply wear out and blow. They blow because of a spike in amperage. Sounds like you have a short somewhere in your ignition system cause a spike which is gonna keep killing those fuses. I would bring the car to a good automotive electrical shop. Try to get a flat rate for diagnosis. Then it's your option to fix it or have them fix it.

Blows fuses


Generally speaking, a fuse 'blows' because too much current is drawn through that circuit. In this case I suspect a 'short-to-ground' or a bad voltage regulator (inside the alternator in a GMC). First, I would check the alternator's output voltage. Easiest just to look at your guage. Up to 14 1/2 volts is normal on a GM (with truck running), if it's higher - you need a new alternator. If it's under 14 1/2 volts, you
MUST find the short. Unless you have the specialized tools, (short-circuit finder, voltmeter, wiring
diagrams, etc.) this should be left to a competent automotive electrical shop. It could be as simple as a wire's insulation worn off or a short 'inside' the ECM (you truck's engine control computer). No matter what, one trip to a competent mechanic will probably be cheaper than continually replacing the computer and/or towing bills. Good luck!
