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.

The radio won't turn on in my 2004 dodge neon


Has any work been done under the dash. Sounds like you have wire grounded to radio or something else the fuse sends power to.
Maybe you could unhook hot wire to radio. if fuse blows again you know it is not the radio.

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse. Why?


This normally happens due to short in the wirings.Or if someone has connected a stereo or some other electrical contrivance to the wiring harness (bundle), either under the dash or under the hood.To confirm this unplug the fuel pump wiring connections and insert new fuse.Then start the car and see,if still the fuse blows then its a short in wiring.But if the fuse does not blows then its faulty fuel pump relay or faulty fuel pump itself.So first replace the fuel pump relay and see,if the fuel still blows then its faulty fuel pump.But if the fuse not blowing then relay was the faulty part.The fuel pump relay located on the fuse box under the hood.---------This troubleshooting tips will help you locate the fault and solve it.-------Thanks.Helpmech.

It will not start or will not come out of park no lights work nothing works all it does is ding when you have the door open and key in the ignition


Sounds like the ASR Relay is blown. This is a relay that trips when the car detects an issue and will blow to prevent further damage. This relay is a black box under the hood. Check manual for ASR numbered location. It happened to my dodge neon once and sure enough I had a short in a wire and tripped the ASR. Hope this helps.

Fuse number 6&9 keep blowing under the hood.


No.6 feeds the park lamp relay and No.9 feeds the fog lamp relay and the daytime running lamp resistor.
They are basically 2 seperate circuits so I would suspect you either have 2 seperate problems or you have an add on accessory like maybe a anti-theft system that ties into both systems?

look in your manual. it's poorly marked under the hood, but between using the manual and the fuse box cover under the hood it's easy to figure out.

Adjust headlights on a 2004 Saab 9-3


Check the fuse box under the hood on drivers side, it will be number 17 and a 10 amp. this vehicle has automatic headlight adustment when you crank the car. If the fuse is blown the lights will point down to keep from blinding oncoming traffic.
