Check the wire harness to the ecm... which is located under the radio... if you , like I , live in a wet / snowy climate... the water /ice from your boots melts and collects near the harness. Maybe it corroded a wire and is causing it to short?

As soon as I turn the key to engage the starter, the ENG CONT 10a fuse blows. It's the 6th one down from the top, on the right side.


You have a short somewhere in the starting and ignition systems. Take your car to an automotive electrical specialist immediately. If you put in a large enough fuse the car will start but you could trigger a fire that might destroy the car.

Terrano vg30e electrical issue...


first thing to do is to have the alternator checked out as the fuse blowing may indicate an internal short and therefore the battery is not being charged ( 3 starts and needs a jump)

A/t Cont fuse Nissan Navara keeps blowing


Fuses only blow if the load is heavier than it is designed for. Most likely causes are, Shorted wire. Defective part To small fuse. If you have the correct fuse then somewhere in the wiring circuit is asking for too much. You need a good electrical tech to find out your cause. If it blows the fuse once a month then this can be a pain in the rear to find the cause. Most wiring is made very durable. Look for damaged areas, or where work has been performed in the past and wiring has been disturbed and not properly secured. Look for alterations, Hope that helps.

1997 nissan quest wont start. charging system is okay. 10A fuse (eng cont) keeps blowing


I'm sorry, but I am not really certain which fuse you are describing because the service manual only uses fuse NUMBERS to positively identify the fuses. There should be a fuse number map on the lid to your fuse block or the fuse block itself will have numbers on it.

With all of that said. An educated "guess" tells me that you are most likely talking about fuse #46. If you find this to be correct, the MOST LIKELY cause of your problem is a shorted injector. This is a very common problem with that engine. You will have to disconnect each of the injectors and check the resistance to determine which one is causing the fuse to blow. The front bank is very easy to check. If the problem is not found there, the intake plenum must be removed to get to the injectors on the rear bank.
