Keeps blowing the ignition/starter fuse and dies immediately

The bike just quit today and I replaced the starter/ignition fuse because it had blown. Then it did it again in about 15 seconds.

How to prevent electrical short


Paul
Somewhere there is a short circuit allowing the current to flow straight to earth on the engine or the frame. Blowing a 10 amp fuse means this is a very heavy current so do not be tempted to either fit a higher rated fuse or bypass the fuse. Almost certainly this would cause burnt out wiring and possibly start a fire.

This happened when you switched on the ignition and before you pressed the starter on one occasion. On other occasions the bike has started before blowing the fuse. This suggests that perhaps wiring with damaged insulation is making and breaking contact.

You said you have a new battery. Is it possible that during the fitting of this some damage was done to the wiring? Do you have a meter or can you borrow one? See if you can find out where this current is running to earth without replacing the fuse. ie check after the fuse with a meter.

At times like this it is good to have a friend that is an electrician to help you check.

Good luck.

1997 Yamaha YZF 600 keeps blowing ignition fuse


Hi, Irisgt1 before diagnosing your blown fuse issue check the bottom of your seat if it's 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.) also you are going to need a wiring 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.

Eng. controller Fuse keeps blowing when I turn the ignition on to start my car


Have you checked your wiring to starter? It sounds like the power wire going to starter has loosened up.That would cause fuse to blow and also the way you described that the car died. Or even check to see that the red wire going to starter hasn't gotten dinged or melted by the exhaust. Anything that would cause it to short out.

Main 30 amp fuse keeps blowing when i plug the 4 wire fuse top back on after replacing 30 amp fuse. any suggestions


Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing your blown fuse issue, check the bottom of your seat, if it's 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.

Bike has shut down while running.no ignition,lights or any indication of electrical power


Check the fuse box for blown fuses. There is probably a main fuse that turns off power to the entire bike. It is some times separate from the other fuses and is normally located on or near the starter solenoid.

Starter fuse. where is it? on


There isn't a fuse for the starter. The trouble you're having is most likely because of:

1) The main 30A fuse is blown. You found the spare, now all you've got to do is find where it goes. It should be in the vicinity of the starter relay (aka starter solenoid). Follow the positive battery cable, it will take you to the right spot.

2) Lose or corroded battery cable connections. Clean any corrosion from them and make sure they are securly connected to the battery.

3) The battery crapped out. These things have a tendency to suddenly give up and quit working without warning. Usually this occurs when the weather turns cold for the first time each season. Check the voltage. Normal voltage for a fully charged 12 volt battery is 12.7 ~ 13.5 volts. Less than 12.5 is suspicious.

4) Bad ignition switch or a bad electrical connection where the harness connects to the switch. There's a rectangular shaped, white plastic connector on the switch. Make sure it is connected securily to the switch and look for any signs of melting. If it looks deformed, disconnect it and scrape the corrosion from each electrical connection inside the plug with an Exacto knife or similar tool. While you've got it unplugged, check for battery voltage at the red wire inside the plug. If you've got voltage there, yet nothing works, the ignition switch is defective and must be replaced.

Starter fuse under the hood keeps blowing....the factory deck was replaced by a new deck...every since then the ignition fuse keeps blowing..


the new radio install is causing this if the power was taped into the starter system. rec. removing wires then try to see if you can blow your starter fuse

Blows fuse wont start


More than likely its being caused by a short-circuit to ground in the wiring in your Cranking Circuit.

If it blows the fuse immediately after installing the fuse, its probably a hot-wire. If it blows it the second you try to crank it over, its probably one of the wires between your ignition and the Starter Relay.

To track down the bad wire you'll need a Wiring Schematic for the vehicle and either a Digital Volt/Ohm-Meter or Test-Light and a basic understanding of wiring which is... honestly a little hard to explain over the internet. However, that is the only course that can be taken without taking the vehicle to a qualified Dealership Technician.
