Question about Dodge Neon
ANYTIME a fuse "blows out," and ESPECIALLY if it continues to do so when replaced,indicates a serious electrical problem.
Fuses are designed to "blow" for one reason, and that is to protect the conductors [wires] in that circuit from damage or from the possibility of igniting a fire due to an overload or SHORT CIRCUIT.
If you have not added more "stuff" [like sound systems, etc.] to that circuit, then the problem is not an overload, but a SHORT CIRCUIT fault.
The fact that your "number 9" fuse continues to blow when new ones are installed is a clear indication of a SHORT fault in THAT specific circuit.
as you said it happens while parking on slant---check instrument cluster if it lights up .also check tachometer/speedometer as it looks like-- SHORT is somewhere in the wiring, instruments, or devices IN THAT circuit.
In order to correct the problem, is necessary that you FIND the cause of the SHORT circuit, by manually checking the above parts and also the basic wirings. and eliminate it. Then, a replacement fuse should not blow, and the instruments/devices on that circuit will again work.
thanks,keep updated and please do rate the solution positively.
