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.

2011 craze fuel gauge not working

I assume this is the only fault showing. The likelihood is three fold A the gauge B the tank sender unit C bad/poor earth. Locate the earth wire from the tank sender unit. Remove from body clean up and also clean fixing point. If this does no cure it I would be suggesting tank sender unit which you can test with a multi,meter.. Failing gauges are unusual but if all else fails its dash out and replace gauge.

Will it hurt to replace the 20 amp fuse in my cigarette liter to a 25 amp it keeps blowing fuses

I am wondering if the fuse blows instantly or whether it lasts a while?

Fuse ratings for cars are usually mean or average values so a 20 amp fuse needs roughly 40 amps to cause it to instantly fail. I have not heard of a cigarette lighter needing that much current so I guess there is a fault that should be located and cured before you have a fire.
Maybe it is the element that is faulty...

I think fitting a 25 amp fuse would be slightly foolish...

No power to fuel pump on 92 olds silhoute

fuel gauge the tank sender is like a resister, no resistance to ground gauge goes up, i think you have a grounding fault in the earth wire, you will need to trace were the wire goes to or make a new feed, making a new earth feed can sometimes be better if you have a spare bulb and some wire to attach to it connect one wire to the live feed on the pump and then ground the earth wire on the shell if it lights up then its the ground that's at fault.

Fuse for gauges keep blowing

initially you had a bad earth causing you the problem , now you have a live wire broken which is shorting out via the chasis and causing the fuses to go.
remove the fuse box and trace the wire that comes from the blown fuse, and follow it down the loom .do a conyinuity test on it and it will tell u if there is a break in it ,,which there is !!!
find the broken wire and renew the wire from the fbox to where ever it goes and also look for the main earth from that loom and remove and replace it . hope this helps

1993 Lexus ES300 - Gauge cluster and climate control is not working - lights and dials are all non-functional (except clock and turn indicators). Alternator and battery check out fine. I replaced the 100...

IF a 10 amp blows you have a head short past the fuse . If it takes some time to blow the short may be at 9.5 amps on an intermittent basis or an occasion that the bare wire touches earth. Look at all the wires and harness and look for burn spots or places where the wires are pinched. Look for wire fault on the shifter area as it is most likely being pinched on the shifter movement.

Tracing bad earth on tail light on a fj1200

Hi, David tail light issues are relatively easy to diagnose and repair always check the tail light fuse first and make sure you have power on both sides of the fuse holder and the usual suspects are:
1. Tail light bulb element is broken.
2. Tail light bulb soldered contacts are extremely worn down.
3. Tail light bulb socket corroded.
4. Tail light bulb socket has no power and or ground.
5. Tail light wiring harness damaged from the rear tire.
6. Tail light rear fender wiring harness connector faulty due to corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.

Chevy silverado keeps blowing fuses

Your 20 amp fuse will not blow if glowplug wire shorts. each plug draws 15 amps which is 120 amps total.I think there are in line fuses for them. Try to wring out where each output from the fuse goes, disconnect all and reconnect one at a time till it blows.That should point to your problem process of illumination! Good Luck!!
