Whatever you do don't put a bigger fuse in because it'll just cause more problems. it's either that there's a damaged or burnt wire or something inside the stereo has gone. so just check the wires and if they're alright it'd be easier and cheaper to just replace the stereo instead of trying to find someone who'll fix it.

Amp fuse keeps blowing when car is turned off

It sounds like that fuse is supplying power to more than just the amp and is being shorted out in the START mode. Normally I would think the power to the sound system would be cut off by the ignition switch in the START mode. Try to find out what else that fuse supplies power to. You can disconnect suspected trouble areas to see if that helps locate the source of the fault.

How do I diagnose a recurring blown fuse in a gmc acadia 2009 50 v causes car to get stuck in park, no power windows, no lights, no temperature controls, power locks

You buy the GM factory manual and then use the wiring diagrams to track down the systems the fuse supplies power to, and one by one you go through each circuit until you find the short circuit. There is no cut and dry way that works every time to find this type of an automotive electrical problem, I have been doing auto electric for 25 years and seldom does the same repair fix more than one car or truck. You can also rent the manuals for download at this site for about $40 per year, a great deal.

My ciggarette lighter worked once now it dosent. When I pushed it i heard a click like a fuse blowing. Do you know how i might fix this? I have a 97 ford escort lx.

If you don't have the owners manual with Fuse Box Diagram and that is not marked, The Lighter would say AUX or Misc or Lighter, the easiest way to find the blown fuse is to check them all one at a time. Since you heard the fuse blow it is the interior fuse not the one under the hood. It may have just been a bad fuse but if you replace the blown fuse and it blows right away then start checking for a grounded wire or if you added and AMP or something and tapped that line look at moving that splice to another line. A common item to splice into this is the Alarm or AMP but there are other items that might have been spliced in like a radio if that is not the factory AM/FM Cassette.

No power going to my (constant 12v from battery wire)

The wiring diagram I found shows it on the same fuse as the clock and cigarette lighter.Not sure if that right as they show the Spetrum and storm as having the same wiring.But if thats not the one,yes somewhere there should be a fuse.If you find it blown replace it,if it blows again you're going to have tofind where the short is.

2001 Sebring Convertible Starter Fuse Problem

The reason that you are blowing fuses is that your starter is drawing too much current. This usually means that the starter is failing (too much internal resistance). By increasing the size of the fuse yoiu are running more current through the wires than they are designed to handle. This can melt the insulation and maybe start a fire.

1992 volvo 240 keeps blowing overdrive fuses

More likely that the solenoid in the transmission is shorted to ground. Has any new electronic equipment been installed recently, like stereo, alarm, etc?
