Blows fuel pump fuse - 1995 Plymouth Neon

  • cspxmp Dec 08, 2008

    I also have a 1999 Plymouth neon that I purchased for my daughter, and I replaced the fuel pump, the relay, and the fuse and before you can even start the motor the fuel pump fuse blows. Does anyone know why ? This seems to be a common problem with these cars because there are a bunch of people on the net asking the same question with the same problem.

The most common thing when a fuse blows is a short to ground condition. A short to ground is basically a wire that is being grounded in the wrong place. If the wire has a any open spots touching metal it is grounding out in the wrong spot. Seeing that it is blowing fuel pump fuses, your problem is in the fuel pump circuit. Check the wires running along the floor board on the driver side. You will have to use a wiring diagram to know what wire exactly. You will have to remove the tape around the wires to get to the wires. Look for breaks or exposed portions and repair correctly.(a saudering gun) I have the same problem right now and have started to look for the short. Is your alternator bad?(making loud growling noises)

SOURCE: E.E.C fuse keeps blowing in 1991 Ford Explorer

if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing

sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go

SOURCE: my fuel pump fuse blows i have a short,i un pluged the fuel pump,i unpluged the coil to the dist.

disconnect wiring to pump. install new fuse for the pump and turn over ignition. the car wont start because the fuel pump wiring is diconnected. check the fuse to the fuel pump, if the fuse did not blow when the pump is disconnected it is a faulty fuel pump. I read this somewhere and a garage is up to 850 dollars in parts and labor only to offer me more parts and labor not relevent to my problem. I am towing it home and running this test my self.

SOURCE: 2008 Ford F450 fuel pump relay fuse keeps blowing.

the fuel pump and radio are not on the same circuit, most liokely the fuel pump is shorted, that is the most common cause, get under the truck and disconnect the fuel pump connector at the tank, if the fuse doesn't blow then u need a new pump.

SOURCE: I have a1994 gmc Sonoma. Fuel pump fuse keeps

The only other things on that circuit are your PCM(power control module) and the fuel pump/oil pressure switch. You can start with that but it is more than likely a ground somewhere on that circuit. If this helped four thumbs up please.

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 fuse always blows


disconnect the fuel pump and place a new fuse in the holder if it still blows go back to the relay and disconnect it and fit a new fuse. In the first instance if the fuse stays good the replace the fuel pump as you have a dead short in it.. If it blows at the relay replace the relay as the short will be there.

Fuel pump fuse blow when I turn the ignition on and cranks but no start, why?


Unplug the connector at the fuel pump. Install a new fuel pump fuse. Try to start the car. Does the fuse blow? If not that the problem is probably a bad fuel pump. If the fuse does blow with the pump disconnected than you need to look for a short in the power supply to the fuel pump.

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.

Fuse for fuel pump keeps blowing


Normally fuse blows off if more current passes through it than what it is designed for.

Probably it is worth checking what original fuel pump fuse amps requirements and have the same installed.

Also check the relay if there is a relay set for the fuel pump.

Good luck

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse. Why?


This normally happens due to short in the wirings.Or if someone has connected a stereo or some other electrical contrivance to the wiring harness (bundle), either under the dash or under the hood.To confirm this unplug the fuel pump wiring connections and insert new fuse.Then start the car and see,if still the fuse blows then its a short in wiring.But if the fuse does not blows then its faulty fuel pump relay or faulty fuel pump itself.So first replace the fuel pump relay and see,if the fuel still blows then its faulty fuel pump.But if the fuse not blowing then relay was the faulty part.The fuel pump relay located on the fuse box under the hood.---------This troubleshooting tips will help you locate the fault and solve it.-------Thanks.Helpmech.

Fuel pump fuse blowing


replace the fuel pump, it is drawing to much current, this is common when the pump bearings get worn out, also make sure you replace the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank connection, it will be burnt..
