Question about 1996 Dodge Neon
I replaced my starter a little over a week ago and now after changing my stereo from stock to custom my ignition feed fuse in the dash keeps blowing. its weird because i can start it and leave it in park most the time and it wont blow but when i put it in drive the fuse blows before i get anywhere. i dont get it if any one has had this problem and fixed it or just might know how to please reply.
Are you using the same power feed from the old radio? If so, your new radio may require a higher current fuse. Check the manufacturers information the came with the custom radio and make certain the current (amps) required is the same.
If the new radio has a higher power amplifier for increased audio, it will blow a low rated fuse.
On the other hand, it sounds as though you may have pinched the power feed wire in the radio bracket, trim cover or have it resting agaist a sharp bracket. So when you put the car in drive, the dash flexes enough to cause the short.
Does it blow the fuse when you shift to reverse?
let me know.
