According to some Dodge Neon forums, theres a wire in a harness that gets rubbed through and shorts out. It is located on the back side of the engine near the cylinder head.

They also say it could be the fuel pump relay that is sticking.

Keep blowing Fuel pump fuse 95 Buick Park Avenue

You may have a short in wiring to fuel pump. Try this! remove the wires from fuel pump, then turn key to start the car briefly. If the fuse does not blow, its likely the fuel pump is drawing to much current and blowing the fuse. God-Bless!

Fuel pump keeps blowing fuses

The fuse is designed to protect your wires from melting due to current overload. faulty fuel pumps may use more power before failure, so Cody change your fuel pump and filter, the result will amaze you

Fuel pump fuse blows i 94 chev Lumina van

First, the ground wire coming from the fuel pump needs to be checked for proper grounding. Next the fuel pump power supply wire needs to be checked for chafing or exposed wiring that could short out. If all checked out well, you may need to update the fuel pump harness that plugs to the pump. It comes with a bigger gauge wire to handle the electrical load without popping fuses. This was common on these.

Caprice classic 1991 model fuel pump will not come on. fuse mounted underhood next to ABS relay blows upon contact with circuit

e fuel pump motor may have failed, causing a short and blowing the fuse. Try unplugging the fuel pump connector at the pump, then turn key on with a new fuse in place. If the fuse blows again, it could be a short in the pump's wiring. If the fuse doesn't blow, it is likely a bad pump.

I have a 1986 Corvette that blows the 10amp fuse for the fuel pump. How can I determine the cause?

If the fuse blows after turning the ignition key to the "on" position you might try disconnecting the electrical connector to the fuel pump and turning the key to the "on" position. If the fuse still blows there is a short in the wiring to the fuel pump. If the fuse does not blow it is more than likely the fuel pump.

Keeps blowing fuse to pump when key is turned on

I assume you mean Fuel pump. If this is the case you have a short in one of the wires going back to the fuel pump. Check the wires you can see, if you find no shorts or breaks replace the fuel pump.

I have had the fuse to the fuel pump blow so i replaced the pump and it still does it . so i unpluged the pump and the fuse still blowes

The problem is not the pump but in the wiring. The sensor is connected in series type(remember in school -- series and parallel) and thus is being fed higher current and/or voltage from the battery. Its the wiring which is clamped together. Examine by tracing both leads to the battery. Its insulation must have melted and come in contact with another wire which caries higher current. The fuel pump gets activated the moment you turn the ignition key 2 notches, i.e., the dashboard lights starts glowing and thus turns on the electric circuit in which the pump(fuel) is an essential gadget. So check the wiring thouroughly including the ignition key terminals.........................sodeep

2000 Grand Voyager blowing the ignition fuse

Was the old fuel pump bad? It might be worth the cost to replace the ignition switch. The wires to the fuel pump would be a second guess if the old pump was bad and burnt the wires before the fuse went. When you eliminated the fuel pump you also eliminated the wires to the pump and it started. Then you replaced the pump, but not the wires. The ignition switch is the other end of the circuit.
