Hi,

There was a recall on Suzuki XL-7 with Dates of Manufacture: September 2002 – May 2003.As statetd; "On certain sport utility vehicles, the ignition system wiring harness is routed under the intake manifold. The harness can rub against the manifold during vehicle operation and abrasion damage to the harness can occur. Damage to the wiring harness can cause a short in the ignition circuit, which can cause the ignition fuse to blow and the engine to stall. ...."
The remedy: Dealers will repair any wiring harness damage and will add additional insulation and a protector plate to prevent the wiring harness from becoming damaged. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on December 16, 2003.

Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934. Reference NHTSA Recall No. 03V495/Suzuki Recall No. EN.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Follow these instructions and hope you will get rid of it.
find fuse that blows.and look next to it and find color of wire that outputs from this fuse. Look on 1st print, see colors, match what you found to what the fuse number is on prints, now you can look at the diagram that where it goes.

disconnect things on this colored line of wires, and you can isolate the problem.

Try looking behind the fuse box. It hinges down and swings toward you.( from the bottom ) If its not secure, the wiring behind it may work loose. the fuse for the fuel pump I think is top center of the box. Right where the hinges is.

Hello,

i am assuming that the fuse you are replacing is the fuse for the fuel pump, then replacing the fuel pump did solve ur problem for 3 days.

did you check again the fuse of the fuel pump? if it is blown again, try looking at manual to see if you are putting the right fuse. is the fuel pump that you put in is an original pump for the car or a replacement pump?.

if it is a replacement pump, kindly check the label and if you can find out what rating of fuse it is using then use that fuse rating for that particular pump.

another case could be another defective pump...could be a factory defect...

you can compare resistance of windings of pumps to find out if they have problems.

another thought could be if there is a return line on your fuel system..if this is clogged and building up a pressure on the fuel line, then this could cause a problem on your fuel pumps.

i hope i was able to solve ur problem,

pls rate me,

tnx drcool

Sounds like your cruise control module has a short circuit, which would explain why the fuse blew again after starting the car. You can verify this by unplugging the cruise control module then starting the car. Then check the fuse again. If the fuse is blown then the fault is associated with the horn circuit. If the fuse is not blown then you know the fault is associated with the cruise control circuit.

Usually a sign of a faulty pump, or a problem in the wiring between the relay and the gas tank.

Replacing the fuse the first time was the right move, becuase it could have been a fluke that it blew. Replacing it again and again was not! You should have found out EVERYTHING that the #2 fuse controlled and verified that the components weren't pulling excessive amperage (shorted condition). By replacing the fuse over and over, you might have made the problem worse by subjecting good components to something that was shorted.

BTW next time pick the oldest guy at autozone to help you, if the counter help knew their stuff they would have told you the same thing I just did!

Many cars have the cooling fan on a thermostat or time delay, to allow it to run for a short period of time after the engine turns off, to cool the engine off. You may have just never noticed it before. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Your real problem is the blowing fuses, apparently you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Putting in bigger and bigger fuses is a great way to set fire to your wiring harness. It's possible that the wire is pinched or chafed somewhere, and perhaps when you hit a bump just right, it touches and shorts.
You may have to take this to the Chevy dealer or a GOOD independent shop to have them chase it down. Unless someone out there knows exactly what this is, it could be a tough one to find.

Blown Fuses - Dead 1998 Ford Escort


Try changing the fuel filter first we always change them when servicing the fuel pump anyway,its easy and cheap,if that doesnt solve the problem you will have to perform an amperage draw test on the fuel pump to insure your not replacing a good pump. Check the fuel pump relay and inertia switch and wiring also.Although possible its unlikley the fuel pump would blow a fuse consistantly without displaying any driveability problems.There may also be another component running off the fuel pump fuse have your mechanic pull a wiring diagram to find out. Good hunting keep me informed

2001 Chrysler starting problem


Sounds like you might have a bad starter. I would take that one out and have it checked first of all.

I would have to look at a wiring diagram and see how that circuit is run but the fuse shouldn't do anything else but the starter and maybe the ign switch....

Can you get a wiring dia of the car? trace out that circuit and see if there is anything else that could be shorting out
