Hi Josephniffen, you have a dead/hard short. Should be easy to find with test light after you check your battery for clean and tight connections. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck.

Ignition fuse blowing


If you have everything unplugged, and your still blowing the fuse, then you have a short to ground somewhere. Here is a picture of the schematic, not really that much going on in this system. I would be checking the main starter wire for chaffing along with any other wires in the area, including the wires coming out of the fuse box. And see if you can at least hear the starter relay click when you try to start it. If you can't hear it, try swapping it with another relay in the fuse box that doesn't have an important function, like fog lamps, or the horn, temporarily of course. If you get tired of blowing large fuses, you can get a circuit breaker of the same amperage at any parts store along with some wire and blade type terminals, and you can insert the blade terminals in the sbf number 4 slots and connect it to the circuit breaker. And inst of blowing a fuse all the time, it will just reset automatically. just make sure it doesn't get too hot. I hope this info helps!

1999 isuzu rodeo blow ignition fuse


Check to see if you are using the proper fuse. If so, disconnect the starter solenoid and then try to start the vehicle. If the fuse does not blow, the starter solenoid (entire starter, actually) should be replaced.

Starter relay fuse keeps blowing


30 amps is heavy, so bypass nothing. Look for a short in a heavy circuit like the the headligh, starter (questionable because of delay) same with starter relay. You have a wire shorting out on the frame somewhere. It's that cut and dry.. Go to the auto parts store and buy an automatic circuit breaker that matches the fuse type your bike uses. but instead of a 30 amp, get a 20 or 25 amp. As long as theres a short it will trip and reset by itself saving you the hassle of changing fuse every few minutes.. While the breaker cycles on and off you can search for the short. When you find it, the breaker will stop cycling and stop in the on or reset. Good Luck

99 Dodge stratus blows the fuse to the starter.


Starter could have gotten saturated and leaked into the starter. Take starter to part store to have tested. If leaked in it could short. Or the windings could have blown just enough to cause it to short.

Infiniti I 30 will not start


I am assuming the fuse was not an issue before replacing the starter. You probably pinched a wire with the starter when you installed it. Take the starter back out and inspect the wiring harness, also see if the fuse blows when the starter is removed.
