Its not going to be easy but i would suggest looking at all your headlight and tailight wires youll probly find a spot where your wiring has worn away and is touching a ground somewhere the wire will likly be at a point where it can rub a sharp point somwhere along the vehicle chasis hope this helps

I have a 2005 keeps blowing the main 30amp fuse when the ac is turned on..any help

you need to inspect all AC WIRING, to find the SHORT, thats causing the fuse to blow ! donot put another fuse in until you locate the shorted condition, ( bad connection, frayed wire, bare wire touching metal along this circuit, you might have a bad switch, your ac has two switches under hood, one @ high pressure side and one @ low pressure side. and your main control switch, check all wires & connections

I have an S-10 All my lights work except running lights in the rear ive checked the fuse box and everytime i replace the fuse it blows.

There is a short to ground somewhere in the wiring harness, or at the socket causing the fuse to blow.

To repair, the wiring will have to be traced front to back and insulation restored using electrical tape or shrink tubing.

Everytime I turn light switch on the running light fuse blows

Replace the fuse with a flasher and test light. Then disconnect wires one at a time, that go to the different running lights, in order to find out which one is shorting out to ground. There should be 2 wires to the fuse at least, with one for the front and one for the back. When you unplug the short, the flashing test light will go out. Then try to narrow it down from side to side. Etc. Look expecially where there had been any accident damage, where a wire could have been pinched and the insulation cut. look where wires have to go through holes in sheet metal, where sharp edges can cut insulation.

91 chevy cavalier has a dead short. Pulled all fuses, still shorting out. Was told to try disconnecting starter. Cannot find starter cable. Where is cable connection?

the positive cable from the battery goes direct to the starter, then there is a smaller wire that goes to the ignition circuit,remove the neg cable and bridge with a test light, that way you can go to every circuit without blowing fuses, also the alt is often not fused to the battery, have patience you will fin it

I'm sure there's a short somewhere, but I can't find it. I've even replaced the starter and it is still doing it..???????
The wiring that fuse protects is shorted to ground ! You don't know how to find a short ? Your best bet ,take it to a shop that can .
