99 cavalier keeps blowing rear defrost fuse, I've disconected the battery and installed a new fuse (30 amps, what was in there before and what the chart calls up), but when I reconnect the battery the fuse blows. Please help!

You are looking for a short in the wiring. Start at the rear defroster and trace the wires back toward the fuse panel. You are looking for spots where the insulation is rubbed off and the wire is bare touching the body or possibly 2 wires bared touching each other. When you find it just tape them up with electrical tape and reposition them so it doesn't happen again. Hope this helps.

you may have a short (verify the integrity of the insulation of the positive wire from that fuse going to the rear window defroster, check the relay & switch.) try to replace the relay.

Heater/Air Conditioner fuse keeps shorting


20 is a lot and is probably right. Does it blow out when you use defrost or just heat? The reason I ask is because the air conditioner comes on when it is on defrost.

Yes my fuse for my wipers keeps blowing and my wipers turn on when i plug fuse in even know the wipers are turned off.


The power distribution box in the engine compartment # 6 , 30 amp mini - fuse , front wiper motor , front wiper relay , front washer pump , FEM ( also # 7 , 25 amp mini - fuse , rear wiper etc. ) The owners manual shows to disconnect your battery cables before servicing anything in the PD BOX

your relay could be shorted which makes the fuse keep blowing

My 99 cavalier keeps blowing turn signal fuse


Check all turn signal bulbs, front and back, you probably have a blown bulb that is shorting the circuit. If all lights are ok, try removing them and installing one by one while circuit is energized, tif the fuse is blown on the first bulb try another location, his way you double check that the bulbs are not at fault. if it blows the fuse again, check your turn signal switch, it may be defective.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!
