More than likely its being caused by a short-circuit to ground in the wiring in your Cranking Circuit.

If it blows the fuse immediately after installing the fuse, its probably a hot-wire. If it blows it the second you try to crank it over, its probably one of the wires between your ignition and the Starter Relay.

To track down the bad wire you'll need a Wiring Schematic for the vehicle and either a Digital Volt/Ohm-Meter or Test-Light and a basic understanding of wiring which is... honestly a little hard to explain over the internet. However, that is the only course that can be taken without taking the vehicle to a qualified Dealership Technician.

How you manage to drive to work if the car did not start after replacing the 100A fuse? I'm confused. You may want to check the 15A fuse for the computer inside the car and check the rest in the same area for possible damage.

As the problem started when your son had a look at the fuses, I'd suggest you check them yourself. Make sure they're good and in the correct slots.

2004 chevy cavalier wouldnt start replaced fuel pump, filter, checked fuse and relay . Started up drove about 20 miles then went out to start it and wont start fuel pump not pressurizeing


Check your O2 sensors. They will give that affect and work only when your engine heats up. If the car cools down and starts up again, that is a sign that your O2 sensors are shot. Replace them.

There is a starter fuse in the black fuse box under the hood. It will have the label of each on it. If you replace the fuse, and it blows again, then the starter is bad.
