No but it sounds like you definately have an interesting short in the wiring somewhere.

Hit a bump in my 2011 Malibu and the radio fuse blew every time I replace it it instantly blows


Try unplugging the power to the radio. If it still blows fuses when you hit a bump, then the short is in the harness. If it doesn't blow fuses any more, then the problem is in the radio.
Hope this helps.

Why does my radio fuse keep blowing?


Because your radio is shorting out or you have a pinched wire somewhere in wire harness. Fastest way to find out is remove radio and disconnect all wires, then plug another fuse in. If it blows than its a wire problem, if it doesn't radio is bad.

My refurbished Clarion cx501 is blowing the fuse in my 2005 Chevy Colorado.


I f you are using the plug and play harness that comes with you truck. Then go throw and just the radio its own power with its own fuse and then ground it to the body of the truck and see if that helps. If it does not help then take the radio out hook it to the battery with a fuse in line and see if it still blows the fuse, if it does then there is something in the radio that is not right.

You may need to unplug the radio to see if the short is internal, and if not its probably in the harness.

Alero fuse 46 keeps blowing


I have seen this before were the 46 fuse keeps blowing and it is usually after somone has had the radio and heater control out. There should be 2 wire harnesses that plug into the back of the heater control but the 1 will fit the extra plug on the back of the radio and the customer had the heater harness pluged into the radio. Radio worked fine but the rear defogger and a few other heater controls did not and it would blow the 46 fuse as soon as the key is turned on,.

Tail light fuse blows immediatly it used to take a few minutes to blow all blubs are good what is the problem


There is a short circuit to ground. I am constantly preaching that it does absolutely no good to replace a blown fuse until the cause of the blown fuse is found. Fuses do not blow for no reason. If you have a blown fuse it means that you have a circuit overload that could potentially burn you truck to the ground. Simply replacing the fuse will only cause another fuse to give up its life to save your truck from roasting. On pickup trucks with trailer hitches, the first place I look for a problem with tail lights is in the trailer wiring harness. They are usually not installed properly. I have seen several of the plug-in type trailer harnesses (the kind that simply plugs in at the connector between the body harness and the bed harness) short internally. You can usually fix the tail lights by simply disconnecting the trailer harness and plugging the body harness back into the bed harness.

If this does not fix the problem, the tail light circuits will have to be traced from the fuse all the way back to the lights to find out where the short is.

I have a pioneer DEH 525-W car sterio harness and colors do not match to that of the Saturn L2 1999. How do I connect this car sterio?


Just go to Best Buy and buy the Saturn L2 1999 Harness . then it will match. Harness cost like 20 bucks.
1st STEP
Things to get from BEST BUYor RADIO SHACK.
1. Black electrical tape
2. (Optional) for quality connection Solder & Solder gun
3. GM (General Motors) Antenna Adapters
4. GM 1999 Car Harness
5. GM Saturn L2 1999 Car Kit

STEP 2 = Match the colors of the car harness you just bought to the harness of the radio (DONT PLUG IT INTO THE CAR YET CAUSE YOU MAY SHORT OUT THE POWER WIRE TO GROUND) twist the same color wires together and then tape them so it wont be exposed to get shorted out and damage your radio or blow fuses in the car.

STEP 3= plug in the complete harness to the radio and the car and also plug in the Antenna adapter to the small antenna jack of the car that converts it to a larger jack so you can plug it in the back of the new pioneer radio that has a larger antenna hole. Now test the radio it should work unless you had blown your radio fuse in the car already which is easy to replace.

STEP 4 Unplug everything from the radio and install your CAR KIT. Then slide your radio sleeve in the rectangular hole all the way flush and use a flat head screw driver and bend the tabs of the sleeve(Radio Cage) so that the sleeve wont move.

STEP 5 make sure your harness & antenna is sticking out of the sleeve so you dont have to fish it out later when you have finished mounting the car kit to your car. Put your car dash back together and you will see only a rectangular hole with a harness and antenna adapter sticking out only.

STEP 6 plug in the harness and antenna back into the radio and slide it in halfway only and test the radio again making sure everything works. If it does then move it all the way in till it locks into place. last snap in the face trim ring into place to cover the silver cage lining.

THERE YOU ARE FINISHED
