SOURCE: Chrysler PT Cruiser interior light fuse blown

hi ,
remove pos batt cable 1st
I would start examining the door switches since they are a constantly cycling part, Im not exactly sure how many accessories run off the door switches but I would examine the drivers door switch, study how the switch removes from the door, gently pull switch assembly out, being careful not to yank wires loose. remove it and look for arcing marks or soot, try all the doors, then I would disassemble the dome light itself if you cant find it, if you find the short you should reinsulate with thermoheat wrap heated with a hairdryer and maybe even some extra electric tape.

good luck

SOURCE: 2001 sonata wiper fuse keeps blowing

If the fuse blows as soon as you put it in and the wipers are off then you have a short between the fuse block and the wiper switch.

If the fuse blows only when you turn the wipers on then more than likely the wiper motor has shorted and burned out. This one is very likely if the snow storm was heavy and you was driving in it. Cause- Moving large amounts of snow and ice off the window puts a heavy load on the wiper motors.

SOURCE: My buick 2003 lesabre keeps blowing the 10 amp.

Thinking of buying a new car? Ha-ha. Not a good idea, fuse blowing for a reason & adding a higher amp fuse could start a fire. How long do they stay on, long enough to see if one is dimmer or brighter than the rest? Might have to do the process of elimination, or to save fuses, pull all the ones out that are easy to get out & try it, if o.k. start replacing one at a time until fuse blow & you find the culprit.

When a fuse blows it means more demand for power is comming through than the 10 amp fuse can handle.Try a 15 amp fuse if the problem is NOT serious you can get away with this.If the 15 amp fuse blows you have a short in your power window circuit.

Battery system surge? postive and negetive touched. now i have so many problems . help

Oh dear... shorting out the main battery terminals can cause spectacular electrical problems. If the main 15 amp fuse keeps blowing , it would suggest a dead short. Make sure that any of the smaller cables that are usually fixed to the battery are on the correct posts. The negative battery lead will go directly to the body of the car and or the engine case. The large thick positive, will go to the starter. The smaller wiring usually goes to the fuse box and then to the ignition. You may need an Auto Electrician to suss this one out.

2002 Nissan Pathfinder _ Electrical Problems

Unusual the dealer can't or won't find the problem.
A mechanic would check everything in that circuit for shorts to ground.
Was the fuse blowing before the alternator and battery were replaced ?
Based on the wiring diagrams I would vote for a defective alternator.
The 10 amp fuse number 8 powers the cluster which also goes to the alternator. If the alternator shorts out internally it would blow that number 8 fuse and take the cluster with it.
The other circuits you mentioned are controlled by the key switch but are fused after the switch. So if the switch was causing the problem it should be blowing a 40amp fuse.
I would probably take the alternator off and have someone else test it.

Do you have lighted visor vanity mirrors? If so disconnect them both and recheck the short. I have found the hot wire rubs through due to lowering the visor, this shorts out the interior light circuit. Never use a higher amperage fuse than what came out, you risk starting a electrical fire, have seen this happen 1st hand.

My air conditioner on my 2006 Hyundai Sonata runs for a couple of days and then blows a fuse. What causes the fuses to blow?

a bad relay will arc on the inside causing increased amp flow. Try replacing the ac relay. $23 for a compressor relay from This all depends on which fuse is blowing. a wire shorting to ground will just as easily blow a fuse.

Fuse blowing on interior light/ remote

Was the bulb the same size and watt as the one you removed? Did you possibly cause a short in the fixture. I do not recomend using a larger fuse due to possible wiring dammage (risk of fire). Check the bulb for size and wattage/voltage check the holder to make sure it is not grounding out. Carefully check each step 2x.

After replacing the battery I have no power at all

Possible causes:
1. New battery defective. ( Open circuit between battery cells ) Seen it before, therefore, possible.

2. Battery terminals not making connection ( check terminals )

3. Battery has different polarity than the original battery. ( Positive post and the negative post are reversed ) They do sell the reverse battery, therefore, possible. Basically, a battery hooked up backwards.
That would cause the Main fuse to blow resulting the no power in the vehicle.
