Replace the wire. It is shorting to ground, causing the fuse to blow.

Citroen xsara picasso 2.0hdi battery fuse keeps blowing.

If it's the main Fuse, rated above 40Amps, then usually only two components are directly connected to this circuit. The starter motor and the alternator. Both can get critical short to ground, that may blow such fuse.The thick battery cable goes directly to the starter motor and a smaller high amp wire is looped from there to the alternator. Third less likely would be main supply to ignition key switch.

The f9 fuse keeps blowing when putting the car in reverse on my 2005 ford focus

The only thing that will cause a fuse to blow is more amperage going through that circuit than the fuse is rated for. Normally that means there is a short to ground somewhere in that circuit. Finding that short can be difficult.

2001 ford focus. It was running great, shut it off for about 5 minutes, then when I restarted it, it coughed and shook and stalled. Restarted it and same thing, then it wouldn't start, just hear...

It could be either, as you have had wires chewed, I would give it a good look over first. Check under the fuse and relay panels also as the critters like to nest in them.
Check the battery & charging system also.

The car wont turn over. when i place the key in the ignition to start the car it does nothing the dashboard dont light up, the car has a new starter, new battery, new spark plugs w/ cables

Is the battery fully charged and are the connections clean and tight. Your ignition fuse seems to be blown. Check the big fuses under the hood. Will the headlights come on? will the horn blow? Good Luck!!!

2001 Chrysler starting problem

Sounds like you might have a bad starter. I would take that one out and have it checked first of all.

I would have to look at a wiring diagram and see how that circuit is run but the fuse shouldn't do anything else but the starter and maybe the ign switch....

Can you get a wiring dia of the car? trace out that circuit and see if there is anything else that could be shorting out
