You might wanna know that you can take the bike for a scan.

Do this as it will lead you to the cause of the problem instead of guess work over an electrical related problem as fuses getting blown.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

2001 Honda Deauville NTV 650 keeps blowing the main 30 amp fuse


Hi, Scott 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 an 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.

Vito 2006 109cdi. fuse number 41 is blowing (engine fuse)


engine light stays on
the ecu will have fault codes stored to be read
that will point to the cause and a fix of the over load

my best information on a vito if diesel..says
10 amp fuse 41 . glow plugs


you must need the van on the road very badly
30 amp in a 10 amp fuse position can
melt the wiring even a fire

Can a bad voltage regulator cause the main 30 amp fuse to blow?


Usually a bad regulator will only cause problems with charging...
Sounds like you've got a short somewhere in the wiring...I'd start by checking the ignition switch wiring and the connections going into the fuse box.

I have a. 2007 road king custom and when I turn the ignition switch the fuel pump starts and when I start the bike it runs alittle and then the fuse blows ...put in new fuse and run the bike 10-30 miles...


Hi Wayzach, you could have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker, relay or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

I have a 1992 yamaha virago 1100. my headlights and turn signals work fine but no parking lights


start with checking your fuses, if all three running lights are not working (front two and rear running/brake) then it should be power related. if your fuse is ok check you bulbs, it's ez and quick.
if you haven't found your power it's time to get out the test light. Start at the fuse block and work way to the lights when loss power you found your problem. If your fuse is blown we now that something made it blow, replace the bulb (if one is blown) and turn on the bike with a new fuse, if blows test for ground on the power wire this the bike off. a multimeter on the ohm setting is the easiest way to do this. now this can take a bit it there is a short in the wire take your time and you'll do fine.

Dryer was running and then suddenly stopped. I have checked the power breaker and it is fine, light is on in the machine, and there are no issues with the plug. When I opened the door it was very warm...


check and see if it has blown either of the 30 amp fuses supplying the 220 volts. More likely the duct heater sensor. Small sensor connected by small wires on the air duct found after you remove the front panel.

No response from the ignition switch


If there still is no response to your ignition switch once that you already have check the fuse in the starter solenoid of your bike then you have to service the ignition system. but if you can't then you have to go to a mechanic. The mechanic should check the ignition switch , the ignition coil ,the starter solenoid, the spark plug ,the spark plug cable , then the battery. if there is a malfunctioning or worn out of these said parts then you have to repair it or replace it. then you also have to check the wires if there are loose wires or worn out wires then reconnect if loose wires but if worn out then replace the wires.the most important for some times is the fuse if there i a worn out fuse you have to replace the worn out fuse. But if the fuse you replace cant hold the wat/amp of the bike then place fuse that is higher than the former fuse you place.

Blown fuses


I used to have one of those amps also (nice amp btw) Did you try another fuse of the same size?
Is it blowing fuses everytime you put one in or did it just blow that one fuse ?
Is the conection on the battery solid and clean of corrosion build up? Because that is a good amp and if wired properly shouldnt blow out or anything and so if the speaker is not blown then maybe connection is weak somewhere? I would try disconnecting the speakers from it and try a new fuse and if it does not blow the new fuse than amp is ok? and if it does blow the new fuse right away then there must be a short somewhere in the wire or the amp. then disconnect the fuse again and reconnect the speakers and if the fuse blows with the speakers connected but doesnt blow with them disconnected then you know it is a blown speaker causing the problem.

Just currious but what size fuse do you have connected at the battery?
