Sounds like you have a direct short in your starter, if you remove the starter you can take it to any Napa or auto parts store to have it bench checked, be sure and disconnect the battery cables first , and call ahead to your local parts store to see if they can do it,, Most do this for free, so check around

SOURCE: blowing ignition a fuse

I believe you mean a 40 amp fuse? Wow! that's a dead short somewhere on a large wire. Could be difficult, or hopefully easy to find. There's always the smoke test option: Solder a jumper wire across the top of the fuse, making the circuit essentially un-fused and look for the smoke. Not the best method, but quick. Warning: if you do this, depending on where the short is, you could melt down the wire harness or possibly start a fire. Try this at your own risk! IT'S A "LAST RESORT" THING, WHEN YOU'VE TRIED EVERYTHING ELSE AND FAILED! Good luck.

make sure of two things one is any wires touching at the starter to ground or melted and or is the starter drawing too much amperage causing the fuse to blow.starter may have a dead short in it.

Testimonial: "Excellant suggestion. One of the wires was exposed due to rubbing against the brake lines hence the 40 amp. fuse was blowing. This was finally fixed."

My 07 Chevy express van 3500 6.0 engine, we had the AC compressor replaced. It stopped blowing,replaced the resistor and blower motor. AC keeps blowing the 20 amp fuse under the drivers seat!


Insure that the 20 amp fuse is the correct size. Might it be shown to use a 30? Otherwise, when compressor was replaced, was drier, orifice tube replaced and proper amount of oil added?

The "eng1" 20 amp fuse blows and van stops.....replace fuse, van runs fine........suggested fixes for this


Since th fuse is blowing with the recomended 20 amps rating, you must be careful to carefully check out the lines for a short when the vehicle is in motion. Look out for short in the ignition system main line. You may find it difficult if the fault is irregular but do not attempt to increse the rating as it might be dangerous. So check this out.

2002 chevy van 2500 when i turn key to start van


Fuses only blow if-Old,Overheated or you have a Short circuit.
That should be any easy fix,to the extent that there aren't many 40 Amp Fuses and you will need a wiring diagram to follow the problem from the fuse to the cause. If you know what fuse it is, you can guess,but I wouldn't recommend that,it will be time consuming and maybe costly ,if you don't have a test procedure to follow and throw parts at it.
Don't replace the fuse.Their expensive and will keep blowing.
