Transmission fuse on my 2001 frontier blows

I have replaced the neutral switch but the fuse blows when it goes in reverse. (but not all the time). when it blows, the check engine light comes on and it seems the transmission goes into overdrive only. when you cut it off, it will not crank.

Why does my 95 chevy 4x4 diesel keep blowing fuses when i put it in reverse

You can rule out internal transmission wires. The only thing I know of would be the reverse light wiring. You have one power wire to the neutral switch. So when the lights are supposed to come on the fuse blows the turn signal . You said you check the wiring, Did you check for continuity? High resistance cause a higher amperage draw. Also did you check the hot wire for short to ground? Try leaving the engine off. No lights on. Put it in reverse, see what lights come on. Have someone stand in back and watch as you put it in reverse. The lights should flash for a split second before the fuse blows. If any other lights come on, you have lost ground to the reverse lights.

2001 nissan frontier is blowing ignition fuses when you let out on the clutch in first gear and reverse

Hi Brent,

Wow! That is a dilema! The only thing I can think of is that there is possibly a wiring harness that is rubbed through and when the engine rocks when the clutch is engaged, the wiring harness is shorting to ground. If you can tell me exactly WHICH fuse is blowing I can possibly help you to locate the source of the problem. Please also include WHICH ENGINE your Nissan is equipped with and let me know if it is 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive.

Hello and welcome to FixYa....Sounds like you have a direct short in the NSS, (neutral safey switch) RLS (reverse light switch)--- if it's fuse # 11 that you are blowing, then it's the safety switch.
It's located on the transmission, passengers side, about half of the way up. It is a fan shaped switch with a big nut at the bottom, it is adjustable.
It has slider type contacts in it that slide and click into position to complete a circuit when the gear selector is moved. Depending on type of tranny, the switch serves as 2 purposes, neutral switch & backup lights. It's probably full of gunk. I have removed them, taken them apart by removing the phillips head screws, cleaned with electric contact cleaner, coated with dielectric grease, reinstalled & and got another year and a half of service.
Here is what the switch looks like....I hope this helps, good luck with your Jeep.

Reverse light connection & details of fuses

There isn't a fuse for the reverse lights. there are two wires that go to the light. one is a ground, that will be black. the other wire goes to the park, neutral safety switch on the side of the transmission. This is also called the transmission range selector switch. I don't know what type if vehicle you have, except that it's a ford. But most of the times the wire color for the reverse lights are purple or purple with a white stripe.
