    your question indicates you think the fuse box is the problem, why? Is it the same fuse each time? can you relate it to anything you switch on or do e.g. turn on lights, brake, start the engine. Basically you need to do a little more work to narrow down the problem and then get the bike to a competent electrical guy. The fuse box is your friend , better a blown fuse than a wiring fire.

If replacement fuse keeps blowing then there is an amperage excess on the protected circuit and any replacement will keep blowing until the cause of the problem is corrected. Replacing the fuse with a higher rated fuse is not the way to go because the protection is bypassed and you could either have a fire or seriously damage the protected circuits.

Check the hot wires in the protected circuit to make sure that they are not contacting a ground or that the insulation on any hot wire has not chaffed off due to vibration and is grounding out.

SOURCE: kawasai z750, keeps blowing main fuse


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: keep on blowing tail light fuse

The wiring to the tail light needs to be checked its grounding somewhere.
Trace it from the rear to front.

In this case, you're going to need a wiring schematic to trouble shoot the problem. You'll have to disconnect the power lead to each device that the fuse provides power to. Then, replace the fuse and start reconnecting the devices one at the time. When you connect a device and the fuse blows, you have found the problem. I do not have schematics for bikes newer than 1999, I'm sorry.

Good Luck

M38 fuse keep blowing

the parts are shorted, the FUSE stops the fire. and flames.
we fix this buy isolating the shorted part.
we do that with an ammeter. (there are other ways, ask)
i see the ammeter prove short then
i try each door manually , 1 by one form the local door switch lock
to see if one door blows the fuse when activated.
BINGO, so then unplug that door lock solenoid, still blow the fuse
(i use a fuse substitute device (sold in all good auto-stores) called a fuse, circuit breaker converter)
lock sol, removed, still blows?, yes? then harness shorts, (hard work)
if Sol, pulled cures over-current, its bad. a shorted soleniod.

there are other ways, ill just list them.
no ammeter?
no C-Breaker.?
  1. use a light bulb in place of fuse. (i use a head light in a box)
  2. a current limited power supply in place of fuse. (see over current)
  3. Pul all parts, 1 by one on this bad line and a box of fuses.
there are 4 ways.
I always use an amp clamp meter on the line
and the circuit breaker trick.
then pull parts. and conn. on the bad feed. (lots there are)

that's it, for shorts.

Brand new Midland 5001z 40 channel cb blows fuses its turned on

Where did you buy the radio at? Can you return it to the store? If you purchased it at a big box store, like Walmart, they will take it back without a receipt on an exchange.

More than likely the radio was wired backwards by someone, which blew the protection diode, and then was returned to the store and put back on the shelf.

If it is just a blown protection diode, it is only a $10 fix at most any cb radio shop.

If I can help anymore, please let me know.
