Hi,

How much is the reading from Fuse to Ground?

If you have a short in the line, and its over 10ohms, your going to blow the meter every time, if you know there is a short in the line all you need to do is trace the wire, because every time you put your voltmeter inline in a shorted series over 10ohms, it will blow and possibly damage the voltmeter.

The meter fuse is used mainly for transmission although you can see other circuits on it. Below is a schematic but I have seen many rubbed through harness on the right (passenger) side of the trans just before the transfer case way up toward the top of the trans.

Hope this helps you solve your problem. Hook up a 12 volt bulb and it's socket with 2 wires. One wire to each side of the meter fuse. Key on, the bulb will be bright if circuit is shorted. Find and eliminate the short and the bulb will dim or go out depending if the circuit has other normal draws. Easiest way to find shorts by disconnecting connectors in the circuit and just watching the bulb for brightness.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Possible shorted transmission harness or transmission shift solenoids. Disconnect the big connector at the transmission under the car and see if the short stops and fuses don't go.

(1998 Gr. Marquis) I just found the culprit of my fuse #13 for the speedo, temp and votage gages. I had to remove the gear shifter cover which was not difficult also the metal brace across the bottom and the ignition key, but it was a tiny exposed burr in the overdrive shift button wire just at the end of the gear shift leaver. I elec. taped it up and now, no more blown fuse!

I have a 93 firebird that keeps blowing the ignition 10amp fuse when i turn the key


If you are talking about the #11 fuse ujder the hood, this feeds power to the crank position sensor, the cam position sensor, the coil pack and the transmission solenoids (on an auto trans car). Unplug those items and check resistance to ground. When you find one that is shorted you will have the culprit. The red wires on the sensors are the ones to check against ground.
