My ignition fuse keeping blowing

About a week ago (last Sunday), I noticed my car wouldn't crank. It didn't make a sound at all. Well, I got a friend of mine to check the car out and noticed that one of the fuses was blown, which was the ignition one. Bought a new one and the car started working. Ok, the same thing happened Wednesday at work, so we pull in another fuse for the ignition and it started working again. Now, yesterday, it stopped crank and it's still not working...did buy 2 more fuses and both blowed. Can anyone help me with this? What is causing these fuses to blow? Is there something wrong with the ignition or starter? I recently got the battery and alternator check and both are fine. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

You have a wire rubbing on something metal. Look at the wiring harness in the car and engine compartment. Try moving them around a bit and see if you can get the fuse to blow or not to blow.

2003 Saturn Vue with a identity anti theft system. Replaced my battery a few months ago. Couple weeks ago noticed a little difficulty starting up. Last week wouldn't start just clicking noise. Jumped...


Anti-theft system has nothing to do with it . Battery cables , maybe , Park neutral safety switch possibly ! With anti-theft system problem you wouldn't a click or anything , that is if the anti-theft disables fuel or the starter . Plus the SECURITY light would be on if it were a anti-theft system problem . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how to do starter circuit testing >

How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

And what's this identity anti theft system ? No such thing ! The vehicle has a content theft an vehicle theft deterrent system !
This system disables fuel not cranking of the engine. The VCM/PCM will not disable the fuel due to any BCM message for the remainder of the ignition cycle.
If the VCM/PCM does not receive the same password from the BCM as the last learned one, the vehicle will start and then stalls due to the Fuel Lockout.
