You have a dead short get a flasher bulb (12v 21w) connect across
the fuse it will light up go around and wiggle wires till bulb goes dim
or out and repair the fault
if that does work disconnect all the circuits in turn
when the light goes out check out that one

I am haveing some problems with my fuel pump new one put it in and it still want start fined a fuse that is a 30 amp was pop put one in turn on key and still pop

Hi Perry, I'm glad to help!

First thing to do is go to the Library and pull up the wiring for your truck and find out what all goes to that fuse. Most of the time the circuit that on that fuse can go to several different thing. If it only goes to the fuel pump then see if there is a connect going back to the fuel pump somewhere at the front of the vehicle USUALLY in the finder well on the frame. Unplug that connector and see if the fuse still pop's. If it doesn't then you know the problem is in that wiring going to the rear of the truck. Find the short and fix it, most like its grounding somewhere on the frame. If it still pop's then you know the problem is in the front part of the truck, start checking frayed or damaged wiring. Unplug different thing like alternator, starter and connector and see if it goes away. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Perry.

Fuse pops for brake lights soon as i put it in

This is an easy solution with potentially hours of looking. You have a short in a wire somewhere along the line. It could be from brake light to brake light or the wiring to the fuse panel itself. Another place to check is at the socket itself. Grab a meter and start eliminating.

ECM fuse keeps popping and fuel system don't work

There should be two ECM fuses. Number one powers the injectors and some of the solenoids along with the ECM. Number two or B powers the fuel pump relay and the rest of the ECM including the sensors that provide data to the ECM. Both are 10amp circuits.
You may need to get a shop manual to have the wiring diagrams to troubleshoot the circuits.

6.5 diesel i put a new charging wire fron 10mm bolt on back of new altinator to the battery,i put a 25amp fuse link on the wire and when i start truck fuse pops,please help

Hi, 25 Amps is too small for that alternator. Your alternator is rated at 105 amps. Correct link is probably 125 amps. OK?

Interior lights won't light because fuse keeps blowing. How do I trace a short?

I would start by pulling all of the interior bulbs out, putting a new fuse in(or get a circuit breaker of the same amp rating at any part store & put a couple wire extensions on it that will fit into fuse slots, that way it will pop, but also reset) & installing one bulb at a time and waiting to see if the fuse/breaker pops. If it doesn't, you know it's not that bulb circuit and you can move onto the next bulb. Once you find the circuit in question, disconnect the battery and trace the wires to where ever they lead you. I'm sure you'll find your short. Hope this info helps...(subytech1)...

I was putting in a new radio in a celica gts 2002 and one of the hot wires grounded accidentally causing a popping noise on the passenger side area. car would not start

You most likely just popped a fuse. The fuse box is to the right side of the center console just about where the passengers knee would contact when going around a corner . Just remove the panel and look for oe or more popped fuses.
