Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

XM Radio Fuse

My XM Radio Fuse keeps blowing out. I started replacing it about once a week then once a day now it blows as soon as I put a new one in, even with the keys out. I think my side mirrors are on the same fuse cause now they are out also.

Sounds to me like you need to check the continuity to ground on the power line for the xm, you may have a power to ground short or a loose wire in the xm harness

I have a '93 ford crown Victoria LX. The door panel lights a radio keep going out (fuse blows). And I have replaced the dudes at least once a day. I have used a 10,15,20,25, and even a 30 watt fuse, but...


Unplug the radio and see if it still blows the fuse. Try to isolate it to the lighting circuit or the radio. You have a bad short somewhere. Trying higher rated fuses may cause your wiring to burn up.

Sienna radio fuse keeps blowing


You may need to unplug the radio to see if the short is internal, and if not its probably in the harness.

1998 dodge neon ignition feed fuse in the car keeps blowing


Are you using the same power feed from the old radio? If so, your new radio may require a higher current fuse. Check the manufacturers information the came with the custom radio and make certain the current (amps) required is the same.
If the new radio has a higher power amplifier for increased audio, it will blow a low rated fuse.
On the other hand, it sounds as though you may have pinched the power feed wire in the radio bracket, trim cover or have it resting agaist a sharp bracket. So when you put the car in drive, the dash flexes enough to cause the short.
Does it blow the fuse when you shift to reverse?
let me know.

Engine cut off and cant start


If the fuse blew at once, then you have an electrical short. Try disconnecting power lead to start, cover with insulating tape/electrical tape, put new fuse in place, and attempt to "start". if fuse does not blow then the starter motor has an internal fault, replace starter and enjoy. Keep me posted as you perform these tests.
