Hello you have a short you need to check your wires first in areas where they make contact with the frame start at the ignition switch and front end areas where the may rub and wear off insulation visual inspection if not then use a tester to find the short.

SOURCE: lost headlight,horn,both turn signals last week

Somewhere you have a dead short, i.e. wire shorted to ground. Only solution is to trace all your wires from the fuse box to the switches, headlight, horn, and turn signals. This will be much easier if you have access to a service manual, but can be done without one if you are patient.

SOURCE: I keep blowing the accessory fuse on my electra glide

I'd say that you have an intermittant short somewhere. These are very difficult to find. I'd start at the tail light assembly as most of the time, I've found the shorts in that area, from the seat back to the tail light assembly.

Good Luck
Steve

1998 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing keeps blowing 15 amp gauges fuse


Hi, Raymond before diagnosing your blown fuse issue check the bottom of your seat if its metal and comes in close proximity to the positive battery post you need to take the necessary steps to ensure there is no contact (electrical tape, thick rubber insulation, hammer a dent in the seat bottom etc.) You are going to need a wiring diagram from your service manual, a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses.
If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with and ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

Fuse keeps blowing in battery fuse 15 amp, no lights 2009 FLHR Road King


Hi, Bruce you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

1997 s320 mercedes benz fuse keep blowing


Mr, Washington,since you have blown fuse and even after you replace it still blown,it is better to find the fuse for what purpose is for on the car and try to get deeper check if you can or if you do not ,just ask the assistance from an expert electrician. Please do not attempt to use an over the specified amps. If you try or tried it is a risk to blow the circuit, ECU or the sensor which is covering it.

Why was the battery replaced? Theres no reason the the 100 amp fuse to blow unless the alternator is shorted or you hooked up the battery backwards. I think the 100 amp fuse goes to the alternator. If it was hooked up backwards then you may have engine computer damage.

1998 Jeep Cherokee blown fuse


Hello There

15 Amp sounds too small. It should be around 25 -30 Amp. You need to double check the size of fuse needed.

Hope this helps.

it happens every time you run the rear wipers, it blows out the fuse, and thus the red air bag light goes on. they are on the same circuit. try not to use the rear wiper. to fix it, just temporarily use a 15 or twenty amp fuse in place of the blown out one (refer to the manual for fuse box and amps), this will set the wiper to sit back in its normal position. After this has been done, go ahead and replace the fuse with the correct amps, and the air bag red light will sets off.
Note:( reason to use higher amps is to allow the wiper to sit back in its own place, otherwise, if using the same lower amps it will keep blowing it out.) ofcourse disconnect battery first. Good luck
