SOURCE: 15 amp fuse blows as soon as it's fitted!

Pinched, worn, or otherwise damaged wire somewhere. You will need to investigate further to find the problem.
Get a continuity tester and check for continuity to ground with each wire.
I would suspect a door wire before the dome light wire.
Good Luck

If your owners manual does not tell you what is on that circuit, you may have to get a shop manual to troubleshoot it.
Most DIY repair books will not give you fuse numbers in a list, but rather by what they are protecting.

Front driver seat blows fuse when seat goes back

Sounds like a broken or cracked wire under the seat. It sounds like it's grounding itself out when you put the seat back.Find someone limber to crawl under the seat to eyeball the situation, chances are, it's a simple fix. Hope this helped you out. G.K.

2001 chevy tracker ,what would cause the fuse for brake lights to blow? already tried unplugging wire harness to back of car at fuse block.

This all depends, if the fuse blows as soon as you put it in without stepping on the brake pedal then theres a dead short in the fuse box or the power wire going to the brake switch is shorting out, this 15amp fuse runs from the fuseox to brake light switch, so the short is between that but if it blow with brake pedal pushed then you said you dissconnect the rear brake light at fuse box and fuse still blows so the next step inwhich power is feed from this fuse is the following and you will need to unhook these components one at a time until short is gone. the next location is the the abs brake control module which is by the master cylinder area after that it goes to the cruise contorl servo also under the hood, then it goes to the shifter release solenoid which is very common problem, the wires melt or short out in that area, and next it goes to computer which i dont think is the problem and from there it feeds the rear lights and third brake light. hope this helps, good day.

I need to know what fuse is for the power locks on my 1997 golf

Take the lid off the fuse box (Which is on the side of the dashboard)

There is a cardboard panel showing the fuses and their application , you need to look for the one with a key symbol

The fuses are colour coded thus

Light Brown 5 amps
Red 10 amps
Blue 15 amps
Yellow 20 amps
Green 30 amps

If you look at the top of the fuse it will have open circuited and there will be a visible gap

If the fuse blows as soon as you put the power back on you have a dead short

Do not exceed the rating , otherwise you may cause a loom fire

97 Dodge Intrepid 6 cyln 3.5 L engine. Keeps blowing the engine control 20 amp fuse. Put in 2nd computer, does the same. As soon as the engine starts the fuse will blow. There is probably a dead short from...

you need the schematic.20 amps is a serious current.
put a bulb across a blown fuse,and if there is a short,the bulb simply lights.use a 12 watt lamp to limit the current to one amp,then remove lines until the short is gone.
i would get the schematic,and trace back from the fuse.
one problem in automotive is how many people may have worked on a given have to check all previous work..
