You are so right, there is a short.. This is usually a result of hooking the power leads up in reverse-polarity. As a result, the protection diode shorts, preventing the death of the rest of the radio. This diode, a solder-in part, is found on the pc board, next to the red wire that connects from the DC power jack. A 1.5 amp general purpose diode will work. And don't use a 30 amp fuse.

Why does AM2 30 watt fuse keeps popping on my 1999 toyota tacoma 2.7


fuses keep blowing because the current flow exceeds the rating of the fuse . That means that something is shorting out . Find the circuit that the fuse protects and check the wiring for dead shorts or a unit that is shorting out internally.

1997 Harley Ultra Classic 30 amp main breaker pops while riding. Also blows 10 radio power fuse


Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and start tracking the wire from the power side of the switch, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

Yes my fuse for my wipers keeps blowing and my wipers turn on when i plug fuse in even know the wipers are turned off.


The power distribution box in the engine compartment # 6 , 30 amp mini - fuse , front wiper motor , front wiper relay , front washer pump , FEM ( also # 7 , 25 amp mini - fuse , rear wiper etc. ) The owners manual shows to disconnect your battery cables before servicing anything in the PD BOX

your relay could be shorted which makes the fuse keep blowing

best way to find a short is to unplug all parts that feed of that fuse put a new fuse in and then one by one plug things back in till the fuse pops.

When i started to plug my battery in my amp made


you have blown the actual filters that make the sound. a amp is basically a filter with the same filters on both channels on each side of the inside of the amp - channel 1 and channel 2, that pop was in the heat sinks of the amp usually. if you have replaced the fuse in this amp and you get no on light, the internal amp is in need of repair

1995 camry running fine up until i parked it for 2 hrs ignition fine timeing belt fine keeps popping 30 amp fuse could that fuse block were the harnesses are plugged to under the dash go bad?


It takes a short circuit to blow a fuse. You could try to disconnet thingsuntil it stops, but that is slow. Better if you buy pulse generator to replace the fuse, then move probe over wire until puse stops at the short in the wire.
Harbor Freight might sell a short circuit test probe and pulse generator.

No power is going to my amp


This sounds like there may be something loose inside of the amp. Please dont go pokeing around in side there your self. Unless you are a fix it kind of person. There could be electric charges , even if it has been unpluged for days. Have some ck. it out if you can not. I bet ya its not to serious , all so ck the fuse. Some times they will play around just befor they blow out for good . keep on playing DFD
