Pretty sure you have a shorted power wire. If happens when you start car I would start checking the wires from the ignition switch to the starter and it's solenoid. The ignition switch is in the steering column and controls power to everything. Just be glad the ECM hasn't been fried. Don't start the car again until you find the cause. Make sure your battery is grounded very good, that's the only thing that spares your ECM from voltage spikes starting a car or jumping it. Think of these parts.. ignition switch, starter and solenoid that powers it, ASD relay that ECM tells to power pump and ignition coil pack (goes to plugs). This is where electricity is mainly going when you start the car. If you can't find any bare wires or detached grounds then I'd open column and look at ignition switch.

Something major is damaged. I suggest putting a circuit breaker in place, for diagnostics, then follow wiring with an inductive Amp meter to locate the problem area.

Amp fuse keeps blowing when car is turned off


It sounds like that fuse is supplying power to more than just the amp and is being shorted out in the START mode. Normally I would think the power to the sound system would be cut off by the ignition switch in the START mode. Try to find out what else that fuse supplies power to. You can disconnect suspected trouble areas to see if that helps locate the source of the fault.

Starter Fuse Keeps Blowing When I Try To Start My 2001 Camry


The starter has gone to ground. This is either a coincidence of age or the repair shop left something disconnected that has slapped around and grounded the starter or some of their other work has shifted around and done it. It could just be a coincidence. If it went to ground internally, it will need replacing. If something shifted and grounded it out, putting that something where it belongs and THEN replacing a fuse should fix it. Most shops reuse your starter on their new engine.

My rover 25 wont turn over, when i turn the key theres nothing but the car will bump start


When you say Bump start, are you talking about push starting your truck?That being the case, I would look at your fuses first, to see if any of them are blown. If you find any blown, just replace them, and try to start it again. Your owners manual should have the location of all your fuses, and what they do. Any that are labeled ignition (ign) would be a culprit if you find it's blown. If you don't find a blown fuse, you may be looking at a solanoid, or starter. Let me know what you find.Dennis

1998 Jeep Cherokee blown fuse


Hello There

15 Amp sounds too small. It should be around 25 -30 Amp. You need to double check the size of fuse needed.

Hope this helps.
