There is no reaction when turning the key to start the car


Turn key to On.
Turn on headlights manually... Do they come on?
Are there any lights on the dash?
If yes to these, battery is possibly not the sole problem.
Check for good, tight and clean connections at battery terminal posts!
If yes to above, continue on & get a helper... Turn key past on, to Start position.
Do you hear a click sound at time key is turned to Start?
If yes, then ignition switch is not problem, starter relay is getting power, and is now sending power to starter, but starter is not working.
Pic any No's... Then look there.
Good luck.

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.

93' Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V8 keeps bowing the 40amp Ignition fuse. Checked Starter, by jumping it. Starter worked just fine. Keeps blowing fuse and leaving me right back where i started, dead...


Blowing fuses is never an easy direct fix. Its rather a hunt needs some dedication. What I try and do is Figure out what is all on this 40 amp fuse, and one at a time remove something from the system and see if it blows. The key is knowing when it will blow for these tests to work. Keep removing what ever is on the system until it stops blowing a fuse. Then figure out how to single out items on that fuse. Whatever fuse it is the problem is on its path. Check all paths that go to items if no items are easily singles out. Replace as you find ,smash, green corrosion and shady connecters. Looks for heat by finding melted plastic connecters. These are clues. If you have a volt meter, then you will find the problem a whole lot easy, by figuring out what OHMS LAw is for whatever guage wire you are working with and a rough guess on length of known path. Using this you can find smashed and corroded wires quicker. As well as finding a short to ground and even short to powers in some cases. Good luck :)

Amp fuse keeps blowing when car is turned off


It sounds like that fuse is supplying power to more than just the amp and is being shorted out in the START mode. Normally I would think the power to the sound system would be cut off by the ignition switch in the START mode. Try to find out what else that fuse supplies power to. You can disconnect suspected trouble areas to see if that helps locate the source of the fault.

Car won't start when I turn the key to start the #10 fuse engine relay pops I checked every thing down to the fuel pump and every thing is fine the few times I got it started I took it around the block and...


I had a similar problem where the battery was ok but there was no sound from the starter and also there no lights on in the dash when the key was turned. Checked the fuse and checked wire from the fuse back to the ignition switch. The wire from the fuse was ok in fuse box but had no voltage at the ignition sw. The was also no voltage to terminal 30 in the starter relay. Ran a new wire from the fuse to the ignition and it fixed everything. Check for voltage at terminal 30 on the starter relay

No start, blown ignition fuse 30 amp.


If it is the AM2 (30A) fuse that is blowing, check the ignition condenser, capacitor, within the ignition assembly. I just removed it and assembled the ignition back together. I am in the process of ordering a new one from Rock Auto for a total of $2.57. It seems to be a common issue. The condenser is actually a capacitor and the issue is that they internally short.

93 corolla 1.8 No start Blown ignition fuse


I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!

Check for shorts to the stator or rotor. It is part of the charging system under the left side cover. Sometimes they can get shorted out, and cause the fuse to blow. If you disconnect the plug for it, you can also test to see if the fuse still blows. If it doesn't, you have found your problem. You may need to unplug things and keep checking your fuse. When it stops blowing, you have found your problem. May want to get a resettable breaker till you find your problem.

30 amp ignition fuse in engine compartment blows at start


It sounds like a bad ignition switch or something is grounding out.Try to isolate the problem to key positions.See if the fuse blows when you turn the key to ACC(when your dash lights come on without starting)If the fuse does not blow then when you go to start it and it blows it could be one of many problems,the more common ones could be ignition switch,wiring,starter relay,starter soleniod,or perhaps the starter itself is shorting out,this can sometimes happen when a starter goes bad.

BLOWING FUSES


Ist of all is 10 amp the proper size?
2nd if you bypass and whatever you are replacing the fuse with, is it warm, or hot to the touch?
If it is you have a direct short in you have a direct short in the electrical system. Check for bare wires,wires touching the motor or chassis that don't have a connector.
Hope this is a FixYa
