    evidently, there is something sorted I would look at the battery cable running to the starter positive post. It may be in the ignition, possible even the battery. 15 amp is a small main fuse as they are usually larger. Good Luck Tim

    if the fuse is blowing when you are driving then it is a wire that is loose and is grounding out or a wire that has rubbed all the coating off and is grounding out. A 15 amp fuse located under the hood can be your brake lights, tail lights and that would be a matter of looking at those wires and seeing if they are pinched or shorting out and need to be taped. Hope this helps tim

Can you tell me why the # 28 fuse under the hood keeps blowing when starting vehicle?


Your owners manual should have the info in the back of the book.
If fuse number 28 is a 15 amp fuse, it could be the cruise control and brake lights.

Hi,
Who installed the engine? If you did, check all the Grounds/Earths under the hood/bonnet. If the mechanic/shop did, take it back and have them fix it.

Why would the no. 1 fuse under the hood keep blowing?


There is a short somewere in the system. Be it a surge of current or a bad contact in the wireing. Very important to use the Fuse rated for that connection ie 15 amp is for 15 amp. Never go higher than the rated amperage. If your vehicle is blowing the fuses in a short time You should have it looked at asap.

1998 JIMMY KEEP BLOWING #6 FUSE AT DRIVERS INSIDE FUSE BLOCK WHEN ACTIVATING BLOWER MTR. ACTUALLY NOTICED, DO BELIEVE,ONLY WHEN CAR IS RUNNING.


You have a bare wire somewhere either in your instrument cluster or under the hood where the blower motor is. It's located on the passenger side behind your computer it's easy to inspect the wires there cause they are all exposed.If a bare wire is showing just tape up with electrical tape or duct tape to keep it from arking out. If not that check that aground wire isn't fastened somewhere under the hood or on firewall. Check wires from fuse box all the way through the firewall could be dangerous. Also make sure you have the right amp fuse in if it tells you to use a 15 or 20 or 30 amp fuse make sure you have that one in.A lower number fuse will heat up and blow everytime.

#15 fuse under the hood keep blowing. Why? It is a Honda Accord


That is the main power distribution fuse. It supplies power to everything in the car. I would advise you to check all the main [heavy] wires going out of the fuse box. Also check to see if your alternator or starter is shorted out. When does the fuse blow? Does it happen immediately after you install it? Does it happen after you engage a certain electrical device? [suspect the circuitry to that device]

PS Is this a coupe, sedan or a station wagon?
