You either have a short or a bad starter. In either case I won't keep trying it or putting in larger fuses.

Heater/Air Conditioner fuse keeps shorting


20 is a lot and is probably right. Does it blow out when you use defrost or just heat? The reason I ask is because the air conditioner comes on when it is on defrost.

I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring and the fuel and starter fuse continues to blow after replacing it with a new fuse when i try and start the car.


Just asking, isn't the starter fuse a 60-80 Amps one? In that case you might have quite an electrical shortcut. Check for any exposed wire or loose connections around the starter. If it is a less beefy (10-20 amp) fuse it might be the Starter solenoid fuse, in that case maybe it is on it's way out. I still don't understand why the fuel pump fuse will blow though. In any doubt you could also take your car to the dealer.

Keeps blowing Air conditioning fuse


If you are installing the correct amp fuse (usually 20 Amp fuse) you could try putting a 30 amp fuse. If it doesn't blow, then you can leave it on. If it continues blowing it, then you must have a short circuit, take it to an automotive electrician.

Engine fuse (20 amp) keep blowing


You may have a short from the starter wire harness to the fuse box. Run a continuity test on all incomming wires from the starter to the fuse box. I suspect you may find a wire that is shorted into your frame somewhere or suffers heat damage at a certain point along the wire.
