You migh have a short in the alternator or the alternator circuit, but take a look in the owners manual to see what this fuse feeds, and we go from there, you can start unpluging thing by thing that this fuse feeds and see where the short is.

Vehicle information Center and radio fuses keep blowing at the same time. 96 jeep grand Cherokee limited. Help !


the fuse has only so many loads no actual fuse stated.by you.
there are more than one fuse related to a radio, besides the one marked RAD. so... why not tell the exact fuse.......????

we disconnect each to find the one that is shorted.
the fuse prevents the wire fire, so... do not up the amps.
ZJ , jeep it is. 96

fuses 3
FB 12 (fused dimmer to radio and other places
FB 15 main radio power,(run -acc)
PDC 17 dome lights and radio memory wire....

you need to know what fuse, then look in the FSM
and see all things wired to that fuse.
the starting page is
8w-47-2 (radio) (posted 100s of times)

http://www.morris4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

does fuse hold if radio is disconnected?????
lets pretend fuse 12 blows
see page 8w-11-8 fuse 12, feed.
the next page covers fuse 15....
see?
you need to look at all feed wires to the fuse that blows
that includes options, and aftermarket hacks to car.

MY 1991 ACURA INTEGRA 50 AMP FUSE UNDER HOOD KEEPS BLOWING OUT WITHOUT THE KEY BEING ON...... WHERE IS THE SHORT ? WHERE DO I START LOOKING/?


50amp only clue and you dont have the book, the FSM.
nor access to alldata.com?
if you did youd, not be asking right?
my guess is that fuse is in the mains box under hood..
and is a real fuse and not a circuit breaker found elsewhere....????
old car, and can be anything this old.
sounds like fuse #33 in the main box blew. and feeds the white wire main.
USA car? ABS opted? A/C opted. sure.
top cause, shorted alternator, so take off that big wire from alternator
and see if fuse blows now. (do so with battery neg lug removed
the remove alt big wire and tape it all up, so it can touch metal.
then put back battery Neg lug, and last the fuse.

the whtte feed goes vast places and runs whole sections of
the cab fuse boxes and power windows.

if the Alt is good.
then you must start dropping all white wire loads.
if it still blows, the harness is shorted.
I personally just uses a temporary circuit breaker in place of the
50 amp to find the short and an ampclamp DC ammeter.
fast.
login to alldata.com and follow the big white wire.

I have aproblem the fuse for my heater keeps blowing can anyone tell me why


Generally the fuse blows because the circuit is pulling to many amps.
Could be a problem with the blower motor or the resistor, or a connector.

Kia 2000 sportage auto keep blowing fuse when starting can you tell me what is wrong


well, blowing fuses is caused by a short, has the vehicle had anything done to it before the fuses started blowing ??? and what fuses are blowing, if it is the main fuses that are 200 amp, then it could be caused by faulty wiring, or bad earth.......trust me if it is the 200 A fuse that is blowing, you will be very happy that it is, because if the manufacturer did not put that fuse there, you would be facing a vehicle fire.....i would trace the fault, or have an auto-electrician diagnose for you
