Why 2001 grand cherokee burn fuse if timing is off?

fuses blow because of excess current draw (amps too high for the fuse) and that is from a short in the wire or unit that that fuse supply the current to. It has nothing to do with timing. However if the circuit for that fuse goes to a cam/crank position sensor or immobiliser then may be the problem unit/s

My bass amplifier requires a ceramic fuse T10H250V. Where can I find one exactly like it?


Fuse breaks when it has succeeded in limiting further damage.

Check for other possible shorted electrical and electronic


• Could be drive transistor , output transistor or both on the main amp.

But check for power supply and in the preamps also.

• Measure supply voltages,

• Check DC offset voltage

• Check idling current (main amp)

Isolate , and trace afterwards.

Need a fuse for my TV

yes , this 8 amp fuse , just buy the slow blow fuse but most of the time when this fuse is bad is because you have another problem on the power supply

My new gateway 537nv will not turn on with or without the battery nor plugged into an outlet. The on light blinks 5 times and then goes out when plugged into the outlet. How do I turn it on?

If this is the case, i hope there is a problem in the power supply section. Go to the service center, & replace the Power supply of the laptop & try.

Lighting came into my computer via the ethernet cable. can this be fixed I also think it took out my power supply un it. It is a gateway 500c.

If only power supply's affected, then change the SMPS with a compatible one of the same rating. But first check the monitor by connecting to the mains power supply with the video chord not attached to anything. if the monitor displays "no videos" signal, then the monitor is OK cange the SMPS of the CPU and check UPS & spike boards fuses, otherwise commect to main power supply pluf(Wall 3-pin outlet socket)......sodeep

I recently bought a powered mixer the Behringer Europower PMP 1000 and it has blown a fuse which was a ceramic 5 amp 20mm I have tried to replace this with a glass fuse but it still blows. The desk is...

Hi John,

If you would pls have a look at the blown glass fuse:
1. if there are scorching/burnt/dark marks on the glass housing, then it is most likely that there is a major electronic failure;
2. if the cut of the fuse wire is clean, then chances are the problem is only slight. In some instances, it is also possible that the glass fuse you used is a fastblow whereas the ceramic was possibly slowblow. As the name implies, their reaction time differs.

Additionally, if you were able to use the unit for some time before the fuse blew, it is possible that the unit was driven a tad hard causing the amps to draw higher current from the power supply thereby causing the blown fuse.

If the incident happened right after powering it up for the first time and you were not able to use it even for a while, another possibility to consider is that the unit's input voltage setting is not in accordance with what locally is available in your current location (110/220).

Other than replacing the fuse, I wouldnt recommend doing anything else as the warranty may be void. Having said that, your best bet may then be to contact the dealer and ask for a replacement or repair service.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Amp blowing fuses

The amplifier probably has shorted output transistors.

Disconnect the speakers and RCA cables. Replace the fuses with two 10 amp fuses or a single 20 amp fuse. If the amp blows the fuse when it powers up, the outputs are almost certainly the problem. Don't try it with the two 30 amp fuses. The smaller fuses will provide more protection for the power supply. If the amp powers up with the smaller fuses and they don't blow, check the speakers and the wiring (for shorts to ground or shorts between wires).

Had the exact problem on 11/14/06. Ordered a power supply board, which was $300+, got it in and when I went to replace the part, found that the old part had a blown fuse (a lot cheaper). Of course if I had put in the new part it would have fixed it also. CHECK THE FUSES IN THE MIDDLE CIRCUIT BOARD (there are 3 boards).
