SOURCE: kawasai z750, keeps blowing main fuse

Hi,

To my knowledge, there are no onboard electrical/electronic components capable of shorting and blowing the fuse with out blowing any of the secondary fuse. The main fuse could possibly blow due to a short in the wiring or an exposed/frayed wire touching the body. The three most likely areas would be:

  • wire harness leading to the regulator;
  • wire harness leading to the fusebox; and/or
  • wire harness leading to the ignition switch.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Ignition Fuse keeps blowing

From another forum,

"You've got an exposed hot wire somewhere in the power circuit that's grounding out and causing resistance in the wire. Not sure how to help on this one, electrical problems are damn near invisible, but I'd start looking for a burn mark or scorched insulation on any of the wiring leading up the relay, starter, or main fuze block in the tail."

Yeah, you have a short somewhere in the electrical system, or your alternator is overcharging.

SOURCE: accessory fuse keeps blowing, headlight not working

I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

JP

1999 silverado stuck in 4lo. fuses keep blowing. how do i get it back into 2whee


isolate the reason for the dead short that keeps blowing the fuse. Look for a broken wire under body on a actuator or a wire that has rubbed through on the transmission .

I have a 1996 chevy chyenne 305 vortec 4x4 and my ECM fuse keeps blowing. After the first time it blew I replaced it the truck started, ran for 10min and died, the second time I did put a 30amp fuse in...


start chasing wires. Sounds like something is shorted or worse, a hot wire may be grounded out.
Good place to start is all wires headed to the started as that is a common place for a power wire to melt against hot exhaust.
(that was the case for my 99 chevy)
Check all other fuses and make sure none are blown.

My 99 Ram 1500 keeps blowing the wiper fuse... I think it's a bad ground connection, but need a shematic to find it.


Fuses dont blow for bad connections, the blow because of a SHORT. Disconnect the wiper motor and then turn the switch on. if all is ok, then connect the wiper motor, if the fuse blows, the wiper motor MAY be bad

I have a 99 dodge ram 1500 i keep blowing the back up light fuse


Check the wiring from the back up light switch,( which is screwed into the side of the tranny), to the lights, there might be a short, do to a bare wire rubbing against the frame.

check the tail light assembly for corrosion.instead of a fuse alone,wire a 12 volt test light in series with the fuse.when a short appears say from a bad wire,the bulb in the test light will glow bright.there has to be a short somewhere ,maybe in the wiring.
