I have a 2005 land rover freelander in the engine fuse box the f3 fuse keeps blowing 15amp you start the truck go down the road fuse blows it starts runing ruff stop turn off truck then try to start wont...


15 amp is a fair current draw and for it to blow after a few minutes means that there is a short in that circuit that is allowing a drain to earth that just exceeds the 15 amp. It is in the ignition part of the system and may be a bad connection ( water ) or a problem appearing in the ECM or relay . Run fault codes to find the area of the fault. Because it is taking time to blow the fuse, it will be difficult to find. Check all wiring for rub marks .

Mg zs 180 power steering noise


Check the fluid level of the steering pump, if level is ok, then pump may be faulty. The rack and pinion may be worn. I have seen a dirty install of new components cause this as dirt is allowed to enter the rack, clogging up passages.

Zs mg rover fan heater risistor not working just not getting no electric feed to it and the fuse is ok.


A very common fault this one, that is easily fixed. On older cars the heater fan speeds one and two often fail, due to the resistors burning out. This applies to most of the MG Rover cars of the 90's and 2000's so Rover 200, 25, 45, 400, MG ZR, ZS, MGF and MGTF.
Buy three bigger resistors of value 0.68 ohm and wattage 10 watts, from eBay or an electronics store.
Most of the video here is an MG ZR, apart from the MG TF at the start but it is similar for all models. The MG TF took marginally longer due to the slightly more hidden location of the resistor pack. You need to remove a short vent pipe as well as the glovebox cover on that car.

hi simon
this definatley sounds like you have a short in the system basicly, whats happening is, when power is transmited to what ever the fuse is attached to is shorts out ( an earth touching live, or vise versa ) what you will need to do is find out what the fuse is for, when you have that this should be then a simple case of locating the item involved and checking wether it is or part of it is touching a positive or negative where it shouldnt be, sometimes a clisic case is , a bulb has been changed and when the replacment has been put back in the holder, the contact for the holder can sometimes get bent and touch the opposit polarity hence this causes a short circut ( it happend to me and took me a while to sus it out myself lol ) i hope this sorta helps
