Thats the hard part, if the fuse slows then how to locate the short , they make a short finder but its over $200,00, replace the fuse with a test light then start doing a visual inspection , look for any frayed or koose wiring that may have chaffed

Why does my ignition switch 40 amp maxifuse keep blowing?


get in an accredited auto electrician as there is a dead short to blow a 40 amp fuse
may be what the mechanic did is the problem but I think that it would have blown immediately if it was
I would be looking for a wire heavy size wire like to the alternator, or after the fuse box etc that is touching ground or a relay that is faulty

Ac fuse keeps blowing


Look at the wires connected to the a/c compressor on your motor. You might have a wire that's shorting out, or rubbing against something.

Fuel injector fuse is blown, keeps blowing. Engine turns but won't catch and start.


if the injector fuse is blown then the car won`t start as its not getting fuel into the motor to fire.if the fuse keeps blowing then you could have an injector/s that is drawing too much or the injector driver in the ecm may not be any good and needs replacing or a used ecm.it could be a short some where in the wiring for the injector system that is going to ground.

2000 Chevy Express keeps blowing ECM-B fuse


you may need a new computer module. you can check for shorts by identifying where the computer module is and following the wires to your fuse box. this may take some time to do. also check your fuse box and make sure it is in good condition and has a cover, no rust, etc. best bet is to get a chilton's repair manual for your vehicle at a local autoparts store. about 28 bucks. especially if you need to do this on your own. this will help give you the correct procedures for identifying and fixing things.

I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier. A couple of months ago, just after starting the car one day, the 'check engine' and 'trac off' lights both came on. I immediately shut off the car, waited approximately 5...


Many cars have the cooling fan on a thermostat or time delay, to allow it to run for a short period of time after the engine turns off, to cool the engine off. You may have just never noticed it before. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Your real problem is the blowing fuses, apparently you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Putting in bigger and bigger fuses is a great way to set fire to your wiring harness. It's possible that the wire is pinched or chafed somewhere, and perhaps when you hit a bump just right, it touches and shorts.
You may have to take this to the Chevy dealer or a GOOD independent shop to have them chase it down. Unless someone out there knows exactly what this is, it could be a tough one to find.

1999 Hyundai elantra died while driving found ecu fuse blown replaced lasted half a mile and blew again


Check your o2 sensor harness. The harness if not properly secured will rub on the axle to a point where it rubs through the insulation of the wire & shorts on the axle causing the ECU fuse (20A) to blow. Repair the harness & replace the fuse & bada bing! You should be in business! Hope that works. IF NOT follow this K.I.S.S.

Keep It Super Simple! It never fails!

Yes I had the same problem. The wires that plug into the sensor at the catatytic converter were rubbing against the drive shaft untill they finally wore through causing the short against drive shaft. repaired wires and it fixed everything
