    I have same problem with 01 sebring---- I put a 25 amp fuse and solved blowing a lot of fuses.If the radio quits then I know the fuse blew! PLUS sometimes when you turn switch to start, it does nothing (sometimes it will be ok for a day, sometime a week.Sometimes it will start on the first turn and sometimes 10-15 times, but it always starts. Also a code comes up saying "DONE" Wish I could find out whats going on with it also!

Check the power wiring running to the starter for exposed wire or loose insulation. I've run into the same thing on a few Chrysler vehicles where the insulation on the starter wire just melts off and blows fuses like crazy

I have the same problem on a Breeze 99
I change the starter but check wiring & voltage on the starter first

SOURCE: ignition fuel starter fuse keeps blowing and it won't start

The earlier "fix" suggests a possible wiring problem -
more specifically, a historic issue with Chrysler products is the ground connections, which are typically insufficient.
Check both the battery to engine and then the engine to frame (firewall). If either are worn or frayed replace them. Even if it looks fine I would still replace the motor to frame cable with a heavy duty grounding strap available at most parts stores. ( doesn't have to be a specific cable - can even be homemade, just make sure it is heavier than the original and is connected to a good, bare area.)

I have a 2004 chevy surban that keeps blowing the ignition fuse what can cause this


You have a direct short to ground on that power feed circuit . You need to find a power distribution diagram to see what all gets is power from that fuse . Isolate the circuits till the fuse doesn't blow any more , then trace out that circuit that blows the fuse .

Which Ignition fuse ? Which fuse box is it in ? under hood , passenger compartment ?
IGN A
40A
Ignition Switch RUN, START, RUN/START/ACCY
IGN B
40A
Ignition Switch RUN/ACC, RUN/START
Could be ignition switch problem , Chevy has had problems with them .

Ignition fuse keep blowing


it sounds like either the wires or module inside the distibutor take the cap off and see if you see anyting melted or any kind of bare wires you can also ohm out the wires checking the resistance that can tell you if you have and open or shorted circuit .a new or used distibutor should fix your problem

Ford 99 Taurus ignition fuse keeps blowing every time key is turned


A bad something, yes.
The fuse may be the primary fuse for the key switch. If it is, you would need to disconnect the key switch harness and check for a short to ground on each circuit.

Ignition fuse keeps blowing out


Check your underdash wiring. At times wires can come lose and your ignition wire could be touching ground. Ignition wire in the explorer should be Pink and/or Pink/white. If you've had any aftermarket components installed in the vehicle, check all the connections to ensure nothing has come loose. Check for freyed wires or wires that could be cut by the metal under the dash. Ford uses almost razor-like metal in their dash boards so be cautious with your hands in there.

2002 chrysler sebring fuse keeps blowing for ignition wont start untill you replace fuse. what amp fuse should be in it. or what could be causeing it??


For your ignition you should use a 20-30 amp fuse. However, it sounds like you have a short somewhere. If you have a short it is not going to matter how big of a fuse you use it will keep blowing out. You best bet would be to take your car into the shop and tell them you have a short and to find and fix it. I must warn you though, shorts are very often times very hard to find, and take alot of time to find. Therefore most of the time they are expensive to fix. I know that probably was not what you wanted to here, But I hope it gives you a place to start out at. Hopefully this helps you out.
