    Found the problem. Belive it or not, it was the wiring for the 02 sensor, go figure! The 02 and fuel fuel pump are on the same fuse.

You have a short in the wiring, Check the wiring that you handled when you put in the new pump. Look for burned/crushed/striped wiring as far as you can back to the ignition. Did you pull on the wireing when you dropped the tank? Most likely it is a wire you handled. Not in the ignition.

Cadilac srx 2005 blowing even coil fuse 15a everytime you turn the switch on


That fuse also powers the even fuel injectors .
EVEN COILS Fuse
15A
Even Ignition Coils and Even Fuel Injectors.
I would tell you to disconnect the fuel injectors an install a new fuse to see it blows then , if not shorted injector . If still blows then disconnect all the even coils an install a new fuse , if it doesn't blow then hook up coils one at a time till it blows ! Shorted coil same for the injectors . If the fuse still blows with all the coils an injectors disconnected , there is a short in the main B+ circuit for those components .

2002 sebring keeps blowing 20amp starter and fuel fuse


When does the fuse blow? As soon as it's replaced or when you try to start the car? Take the small wire off the starter solenoid. This will separate the fuel pump from the starter solenoid. With a new fuse in turn the ignition switch to the start position. Does the fuse blow? If so, then the fuel pump and/or the wiring to it has a short. If the fuse doesn't blow then the starter solenoid or the wiring between the ignition switch and the solenoid has a short.

Fuel pump fuse blow when I turn the ignition on and cranks but no start, why?


Unplug the connector at the fuel pump. Install a new fuel pump fuse. Try to start the car. Does the fuse blow? If not that the problem is probably a bad fuel pump. If the fuse does blow with the pump disconnected than you need to look for a short in the power supply to the fuel pump.

1987 Chevy silverado gauge / idle fuse keeps blowing


The 20amp ga/idle fuse powers a hot fuel module which powers the oil pressure switch, the fuel pump relay, and the fuel gauge in the tank.
Any of the four components including the fuel pump can blow the fuse.

The fuel injector fuses keeps blowing as soon as i open the ignition switch, it dosent even give me time to turn on the car before it blows again. the car has a new fuel pump installed by jiffy lube about...


There is a short circuit to ground on one of the circuits that the fuse protects. I need more information about your car and exactly which fuse is blowing. (Year, Make, Model, Engine size) All of the circuits powered by that fuse must be traced to find exactly what is causing it to blow. Most of the components can be eliminated as the cause by unplugging them one at a time and checking the fuse connector with a test light. (Otherwise, you could go through a lot of fuses trying to figure it out.)
