    Ended up being the motors in the passenger seat that move the seat front and back. They were binding then overheating and poping the fuse whenever someone would move the seat.

Check and see if your battery cables are ok and not staring to corrode. Sometimes it is hard to see this whithout taking the cables off the battery. If the computer picks up a break in power or drop in amps it will blow a fuse rather than taking out the computer. Hope this helps

K2500 Suburban with. 6.5 Diesel and the instrument fuse keeps blowing when I turn the key to the on position. When I disconnected the glow plug relay the fuse did not blow. Also while running with th


did u replace the relay just a curious question, sometimes they have rust and water in the inside of the relay but my guess would be that you have a bare wire rubbing somewhere, causing the fuse to blow, anything significant has happened before that issue?

My 1997 Chevy suburban k1500 5.7L keeps blowing the 20-A ENG 1 fuse


I had this same problem with a 1997 Z71 K1500. That fuse was receiving power from the ignition switch in my truck. After putting 4 ignitions in it in 6 months, I finally figured out that every time I put the transfer case in 4Low, the service engine light would come on & the ignition switch would go bad soon after. The electric motor that engaged transfer case was bad. Every time I engaged 4 Low, It would throw power surge to ignition & blow it up.

I have a 2003 chev silverado, 4x4 2500 both power seats and seat heaters stopped working at the same time, Looking for reason why, all fuses seem to be good. I was told to replace the 25 amp relay on


Ok I don't know who these people are giving advice but I hope they are not gm mechanics. There is a fuse under the hood marked MBEC 1 50amp. If it blows it knocks out both power seats seat heaters and power windows passenger side front and back. I can't believe all this wiring ****!

Brake light fuse keeps blowing in my 1997 Suburban only when towing trailers.


If the fuse blows on different trailers then it's all down to the vehicle. You either have incorrect wiring on the vehicle, a short OR the fuse is not of a high enough value to cope with the additional brake lights? You could try removing all the trailer bulbs EXCEPT the brake lights - e.g. if it's trying to power up the indicators too? That would stop the fuse blowing...... OR remove the brake bulbs from the vehicle & see if it operates the trailer without blowing...... Check the total wattage of ALL the brake lamps & see if the fuse is actually of a high enough rating? Be aware though that increasing the value of the fuse could cause damage elsewhere! As a rough guide a 25 watt bulb will pull around 2 amps at 12 volts - so 4 bulbs may pull up to 8 amps & clearly blow a 5 amp fuse! If in doubt take it to an auto electrician...... The wiring needs to be correctly protected!
