The positive lead in the starter circuit is touching ground, causing the fuse to blow. Unless there is a positive lead in the starter switch that is causing the wire to short to ground, it is most likely somewhere in the harness. The first thing is to look and remove any wire covering and check the harness or wire with a worn insulator (wire coating). To blow a 30 amp fuse is definitely a dead short to ground.

Something is the charge circuit must be blowing the fuse. The charging circuit is about the only circuit that is only hot when the engine is running. Everything else will work with just the key on.

Won't crank


if battery is good, check to see if you have voltage at solenoid. if you do, turn key to start, that should throw the fire from other side of solenoid to starter. if there is no fire on the other side of solenoid when you turn the key,then your solenoid is most likely bad.

30 amp Starter/Ignition fuse keeps blowing when i turn the ignition key. The instrumentpanel lights are dim and then the fuse blows.


I am assuming you are talking about the circuit that powers the key switch. I'm showing a fuseable link to the starter relay instead of a fuse.
If it is the circuit that powers the switch, I would disconnect the switch and see if the fuse blows as each circuit is powered one at a time using a jumper wire. You can get 30amp circuit breakers that plug into the fuse slot to use while you are testing circuits.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to find out what is powered by that fuse since it is most everything on the car.

2000 road king turn signals come on some times.the indacater light flash kinda fast if i feather the switch's they'll come on


Hi James, 1992 and later Touring Models, fuel pump fuses and relays will be behind the right side panel, starter and ignition relays will be under the seat behind the battery, everything else will be behind the left side panel to access fuses pull back on the front two locking tabs and slide the cover up. Good luck and have nice day.

2001 blazer wont crank, headlights come on when key is off,can get truck to run after taking cover of starter relay,and fuelpump relay turn key on, and manually push relays to start.


At the moment, I'm only talking about starter relay. The starter relay has two sides, the load side and control side. The load side is that line with arrow, terminal 30 and 87, terminal 30 is hot all the time, plus, see that fuse on the load side. If you unplug the starter relay, key in the on position, on position is where dash lites come on, Then use jumper wire between terminals 30 and 87, at the least it should crank the starter motor and it might start. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
If you get a reaction, the problem should be on control side of starter relay, right side in the picture. Terminal 85 and 86, the control side needs voltage and ground. You can see crank fuse, goes hot with key in the crank position, not only check fuse check for voltage on fuse circuit. As you can see, on the control side the neutral or clutch switch, depending on the tranny, is involved The ground for the control side is a chassis ground. As far as the fuel pump, other than the initial prime, fuel pump will not run w/o rpm signal, you have to crank it to get rpm signal.

My Honda 2008 aero will not power I mean lights igianition nothing Replaced battery nothing check fuses behind the side plate all good


The main fuse for the motorcycle is located on the starter solenoid. Follow the positive battery cable from the battery to the starter solenoid under the right side cover below the seat. There is a flat 30 amp push fuse located in the top of the solenoid. Fuse part #24 on starter solenoid part #5 is what you need to change.

Every time I turn the key to start the motor it blows the 30 amp fuse what is the cause and how do I fix it


if the fuse is blowing when you turn key to start position then this is where to look for the fault ,between the ignition switch and the relay then the other side of the relay to the starter motor solonoid

Have 2005 yamaha roadstar wont start no power. Batterie and fuses are good any idea what would cause this


Here are a few things to try to help you diagnois your problem.
1.Check for corrosion on battery terminals and the fuses.

2.Fuses are good - Did you check the fuse on the top of the solenoid?

3. Take a screwdriver and jump the solenoid wires to start the engine. If it starts, then your starter is good. (could be a bad solenoid - but lets check some wires first)
Your solenoid operates when you hit the start button.
Your start button won't work until you turn the on/off switch on.
Your on/off switch only has power when you turn the key on.
4 Use a test light to test the following:
Right Handlebar switch house - Test to see if you have power to on/off switch - Turn your ignition key on & off to see the testlight come on - if light comes on that means your igntion switch is good. If no light, the problem is in the igntion switch. or the main fuse to the igntion switch is bad.

If the light came on then you have power to one side of the on /off switch - test the on /off switch by turning it on and off. When switched to on you should have power to the other side of the on/off switch which is sending power to the rest of the bike which includes your starter button.
Test your start button with the test light by putting the test light on the solenoid - Turn key on - turn on/off switch on - push start button and see if the test light lights up. If the test light lights up that means that your solenoid fuse may be bad. It is located right on the top of the solenoid. If the fuse is good then that means your solenoid is bad. Replace it with a new one.
If the Test light did not come on then your starter button is not making contact and needs fixed or replaced.

So follow the power with the test light until through each component until you come to the faulty one.

NOTE: If its a blown fuse, check your wiring. You'll have to find out why the fuse blew and fix it or your fuse will just blow again. Could be a short somewhere, installing a battery wrong will blow fuses.

91 camry(4cyl, 5 sp) wont turn over. It has power but wont engage starter. Tried cleaning battery, new battery, new starter, changing starter relay-no joy. Was intermitant, now constant. Light tester...


By the sound of it. Can you check the Starter Fuse if its still good. you can visually check this by simply taking out the fuse and inspecting if the fillament is still whole. Any breaks in the filament would mean a dead fuse. To find out which fuse to check look at the underside of the fuse box cover and there should be a diagram.

Another potential problem would be the ignition switch. if thats the case there are a lot of ways to go about this but the cheapest way is to simply create a new lead to the starter and add in a push button switch (if done right it would look really cool since most exotic cars are actually started with a push of a button rather than a turn of the key)

My riding mower blows fuses once you turn the key.


Sounds like you are on the right path, maybe some wires on the ignition were replaced backward, and you are sending +12v directly to ground? Does it blow right away?

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.
