Check the wires along you engine see if any have a bare spot or rubbing the throttle cable, sounds like you have a short also check to see if any wire along your fuel injection on the engine have a bare spot or shorted look closly and slowly for the rubber shielding to be chaffed or missing remember the wires once shorted could have turned black so dont just look for copper color inspect very closely with a flash light.

88 toyota pick up v6 keeps blowing efi fuse


you may have a short of some kind, when a fuse blows repeatedly it is no good just replacing, you are being told that something is wrong with the equipment.
You will almost certainly have to visit a technician for a diagnosis. It is unlikely to be something that an inexperienced end user can sort out I am afraid.

GOOD LUCK

1999 Toyota camry. Automatic trans. Blows fuel pump fuse when shifting into drive. Checked wiring. What else can it be?


Robert: According to CarGurus.com: " I agree it may not be your fuel pump. You can access the pump under your back seat, underneath the cloth under there. You will iummediately see the plug and the screws to open the little hatch. My 1986 Camry also has a problem with not getting any fuel and thought it was the fuel pump. turns out I keep blowing my efi fuse so i unplug the power wires to the fuel pump and it still keeps blowing the 51a efi fuse. So we have narrowed it down to being an electrical problem. We think it is a shortage or a bad relay. So do not instantly run out and think it is your fuel pump. If you are blowing fuses unplug the power wires to the fuel pump and try to crank the car if the fuse still blows then it is not a bad pump, if it does not blow then there is a shortage in the wires in your fuel pump. Hope this helps I will let you know exactly what the elctrical problem is in my car once we do a complete run down."

My 15 amp gauge fuse keeps blowing when im driving


what does this 15A power?
if the slot calls for a 15A, don't go bigger, but look for a shorted wire/loose connection for whatever that fuse powers.
ex: 15A fuse for my lighter keeps popping..... Nevermind, I found a dime stuck in the lighter that caused it.
hope it's not a hard one to track, but let me know and I'll help ya think on the solution.

Unsure if promblem is fixed. Blowing efi fuse.


The most common reason for the EFI fuse to blow is the wiring is rubbed through somewhere in the engine wiring harness, this fuse supplies power to many EFI parts on the engine, always look for shorts where the most movement is, the engine is that place, most likely the next time you go down a really rough road the short may occure again, carry a few fuses just to be safe.

EFI fuse blows


You have a short in one of your fuel injector wires. Check the wires from your fuel injectors for burns or cuts, look for bare wires grounding out on medal
