Install a test light (12v bulb) or a buzzer in palce of the fuse. When you get the light or buzzer to stop, you will have found the short circuit. Look in the owner manual for what this fuse protects.

Ok well I put in a brand new starter because my crank sensor keeps blowing and thinking I fixed the problem long behold I keep blowing my crank fuse when I try starting the truck I don't know wear to start


No, year make or model. But if you blow the crank fuse, it is between the starter and the ignition switch. Could be the switch, but most likely the wire. At the relay there are four pins. 30 is B+ all the time, 87 is to the starter. 85 and 86 can be switched. But one is B+ with the key in start position, the other goes to the ECM, this would be ground.. Since you're blowing the fuse, you need to find the short to ground. this would be the 85 and 86 wires.

Instrument Panel keeps blowing fuses


It isn't the ground; if you lost the ground, it wouldn't be blowing fuses-it wouldn't be doing anything.
There may be a short in the panel, or in the wiring to it. You will need to pull the instrument cluster out to investigate. If the wiring and connectors look good, probably need a new cluster.

Hi.

The Meter fuse controls the circuit energizing the odometer in the instrument cluster. If the fuse blow there is usually a short in the circuit powering the instrument panel or in the connections at the back of the instrument panel.

One fuse only blows everytime I turn the ignition on. The fuse controls the guages and door glass windows.


If you consistantly blow the same fuse, then something that fuse controls is shorted. You will need to do some troubleshooting to figure out exactly where the problem is. Try separating the power windows from the instrument panel and power up one at a time. The one that blows the fuse is where your problem is.

My 2005 buick rendezvous keeps blowing the fuse for the turn signals and brake lights. Fuse #42 in the inside fuse panel. this just started happening two days ago. Nothing is different with the car.


most likely caused by a short, could be any were. start with the light assembleys remove it and clean any rusty or coroded spotspull all bulbs clean and or replace .auto parts stores sell an electrical parts wash about 9 to 14 $ . spray as needed let dry and put back together.if it still blows fuses its some ware in the wire s , could also be at the turn signal switch or the brake switch . you would have to get it to blow to figure out witch one it is and witch one it is not example put in new fuse then keep putting on the brakes if not blown then keep doin the turn signal then check to see if blown

Fuel ECU fuse keeps blowing (30 amp)


Your fuel pump is internally binding and causing the fuse to blow. Change the pump (and filter while you're back there.)

My truck keeps blowing the instrument panel fuse.


My 2002 F350 keeps blowing fuse 45. I lose the instrument cluster (all gauges) and there is no throttle response. Sounds like a wire for the od button is shorting out in the steering column. Remove the ignition switch and column shroud and look for a bare wire. be sure and look by where the boot sits. I am just looking for more info before I try it myself. Hope this works for others.
