Hi, The code showed that fuse 18 on our 2006 Taurus was blown. We replaced it, the car ran for about a minute and then the fuse blew again. Any ideas why this would happen?? Carolyn McConnell

SOURCE: Blows fuse wont start

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.

SOURCE: Blowing Fuse

There are a few possibilities here. First, you may have high starting amps on the compressor. You mentioned the run capacitor being changed. I'm not sure if you have a start capacitor, but that should also be checked. If you don't have a start capacitor, I would recommend having a hard start kit installed in the unit. It's basically a start capacitor with an internal relay to take it out of the circuit when the compressor is running, and wires up in parallel to the run capacitor. Also, check all of your line voltage wiring. Make sure all the wiring connections are tight (wire nuts, screw terminals, etc.), and that there's no issue with wiring insulation rubbing off from vibration, etc. Finally, check the points on the compressor contactor. If the contacts are black and pitting, it causes arcing, which means excessive amp draw through the contactor.

SOURCE: car was running in driveway

hello,

i am assuming that the fuse you are replacing is the fuse for the fuel pump, then replacing the fuel pump did solve ur problem for 3 days.

did you check again the fuse of the fuel pump? if it is blown again, try looking at manual to see if you are putting the right fuse. is the fuel pump that you put in is an original pump for the car or a replacement pump?.

if it is a replacement pump, kindly check the label and if you can find out what rating of fuse it is using then use that fuse rating for that particular pump.

another case could be another defective pump...could be a factory defect...

you can compare resistance of windings of pumps to find out if they have problems.

another thought could be if there is a return line on your fuel system..if this is clogged and building up a pressure on the fuel line, then this could cause a problem on your fuel pumps.

i hope i was able to solve ur problem,

pls rate me,

tnx drcool

SOURCE: Fuse keeps blowing

Well there are alot of things on this fuse that could cause this concern. Door opening switches,clock,radio,all the interior lamps but the most common areas would be the vanity mirrors or the door opening switches. The LG/Y wire is the wire on these that you are concerned with.
The vanity mirrors would be my first area I would look at. Remove them and trace the LG/Y wire back and see if it is pinched or scrapped so that a bare wire is touching metal. If you see nothing there then remove the door switches on the a pillars in the door opening and check the same wire.

SOURCE: reverse lights fuse blew

hi
check the wire because if the fuse keep blowing there's a wire somewhere on the car that has contact with the frame so everytime you put your car on reverse the 12V wire shortcut on the frame so the fuse blow check all your positive wire and your bulb as well
Good luck

Having codes P0306 and P0316 show up for 2005 Ford Taurus


Well code 306 is for a miss on cylinder six and code 316 is for a miss detected on startup, which you probably already know.
Since I assume you have replaced the ignition parts for that cylinder,
the next component to check is the injector. You may want to check fuel pressure too.

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.

The battery went dead when I tryed to start in cold weather,I removed the battery and charged it back up, However when I put the battery back in the car started and ran for about five minutes when it shut...


You have a dead short across that fuse, The end opposite the battery will probably show a ground rather than a resistive load. You are going to have to find that short and fix it. A dead short on a 60 Amp fuse is a heavy load. That fuse is probably preventing a fire or melted harness wires.

Car shut down directly after turning on and now wont stard we have found that one of the 20 amp fuses is blown could this be the problem on my ford taurus 05 model


Yes, it probably blew soon as you started the vehicle. It depends on what the fuse is for.
Try replacing the fuse, and see if that helps anything.

(if no fuses available, take a fuse of equal amperage from something you can live without (ie. radio, cigarette lighter) and try it in the spot of the blown fuse.)

hope this helps!
