You have a dead short in your wiring or the starter motor.
disconnect the starter wire from the starter and try to start the car - does the fuse blow. ( the car will not start of course).
if it does blow you have a wiring problem - careful the problem could cause a electrical fire.

1995. Why does the engine fuse keep blowing?


If that is the only instance to blow the fuse; when the contact key is turned 'ON' the relay sets priority to 'start engine' mode, like directing the power to the starting accessories, now when instead you activate something else, the circuit is overloaded: Puff

There is no reaction when turning the key to start the car


Turn key to On.
Turn on headlights manually... Do they come on?
Are there any lights on the dash?
If yes to these, battery is possibly not the sole problem.
Check for good, tight and clean connections at battery terminal posts!
If yes to above, continue on & get a helper... Turn key past on, to Start position.
Do you hear a click sound at time key is turned to Start?
If yes, then ignition switch is not problem, starter relay is getting power, and is now sending power to starter, but starter is not working.
Pic any No's... Then look there.
Good luck.

I have a ford transit flatbed and a 15 amp small blade fuse in the cab fuse box keeps blowing while driving when it blows the engine cuts out and when you turn the key to restart nothing happens at all...


Well u will need an amp meter that will check out the current thru fuse with nothing on " multi function" besides the motor running and see if it solves your problem and tell us your current reading .

My 02' mdx won't come out of park, keep blowing a 20 amp fuse. This fuse controls the Cruise, break lights, memory seat, horn and linkage. I have to manually delink. I have unhooked the comand...


Here is an idea, when do you blow the fuse key on, key on engine running, key on engine running hitting the break pedal? Try and get the key on without blowing fuse if possible, then one at a time try those circuit loads ie: horn, brake pedal and so on, if you isolate which load is pulling to many amps(blowing fuse) unplug that load itself, then restart testing, see if fuse stays ok. You can also substitue the fuse with a circuit breaker and unplug each load until click(of breaker) stops.

My 2000 pontiac grand prix 3.8l keeps blowing the fuel injector fuse pretty much everytime the key is turned on


Might want to chk. for a bear wire on the injector harness that might be grounding out, or might be pintched, if its had engine work done on it in the past. Also chk.wear the injector harness plugs into the maine harness too.

Blowing fuses jeep wont start


use a circuit breaker or paper clip with pliers so you do not burn yourself use paper clip as fuse unplug engine controll sensors 1 at a time and check if problem is gone after each one is unplugged an engine controll sensor is most likely shorting out if you have a map sensor try that first then move on to other components tps,fuel pump ect. till you find wich is fauly causeing short this should help you just be carefull with paperclip am saying to do this instead of blowing expensive fuses
