Hi ...... Could be almost anywhere. Have you recently had any work carried out ? Gonna be a 'long' process but try with ignition off, change fuse, and one after another disconnect main/plug connectors in the loom ................ with any luck you'll isolate the problem to a section of the loom or component. You may need a few fuses. Finish off with a multimeter.
Let us know how you get on.

Could be a short circuit on ignition wires or a broken ignition switch. Or a short circuit on starter wires or inside the starter motor itself.

My 1997 900 Triumph sport sprint started to run on 2 cylinders, I thought it was going onto reserve so turned the tap to the reserve position but this didn't solve the problem. When I got home I drained...


Sounds like something has clogged one of the pilot jets in the carburators. You can figure out which one by feeling which pipe is cold after running for a short time. Probably best to clean all 3 carbs while you have them off.

Diagram of a 2000 chevy express wiring of a starter


( one question i have is every time the ignition fuse blows do i need to replace the starter relay? ) NO ! You have a dead short to ground on one of the circuits that fuse feeds. Do you know how to find a short circuit ? Video's on youtube show how. The fuse that blows ,is it IGN - A 40 amp. located in the under hood fuse/ relay center ? That fuse feeds B+ voltage to the ignition switch ,which powers up other thing's ,fuse's etc.. Not just the starter relay ! I see five other fuse's that get power from that fuse when ignition switch is in the start or run position . In the I/P fuse panel the gauges fuse #4 10amp , air bag fuse #10 10amp , turn b/u fuse #16 20amp. , Plus trans fuse #20 10 amp ! Pull out these fuse an try to start the van. if the ignition fuse doesn't blow the problem is in one of these other fuse circuits. There is one more fuse that get's B+ power from the ignition switch and ign A fuse ,crank fuse fuse #8 10amp. this powers the control side of the starter relay .
You can find a free wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine . Under system click engine , under subsystem click starting. Click the search button then the blue link.
If you pull those fuse's i mention and it still blows the fuse look for a shorted ignition switch or wiring from ignition to the starter relay , not the relay itself. Park neutral safety switch . Isolate the circuit , pull the relay out of it's socket ,pull the crank fuse #8 in the I/P fuse box. with a ohm meter check to see if that part of the circuit is shorted to ground. Do you know how to do that ? Do you have a volt ohm meter ? You can buy one cheap at parts store .

1975 351W with 2 bbl carb, runs great for about 10 minutes, then dies.


Chances are it is the ignition box on the fender. It controls the ground signal to the coil and the timing.
If you can duplicate the problem and get it to "not start" you could test the box. Otherwise it may be tough to troubleshoot.
There's a chance something is going on with the pickup coil in the distributor too.

Sounds like the fuel pump could be shorted or seized. I would begin troubleshooting there. It may need replacing.
