    WHAT IF POSS. POST OF STARTER SPINS

  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 11, 2010

    Look for a place where a bare spot on the wire could be touching the chasis. Sometimes this happens at the fuse holder. Let me know if you find anything. Also look on back of the ammeter to see if anything looks suspicious there.


  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 11, 2010

    Well there is either a short or your magneto/alternator is overcharging. Trace the wire to/from the fuse. Look for a place where a bare spot on the wire could be touching the chasis. Sometimes this happens at the fuse holder.



    Please let me know what you find.



    thanks...

    Which fuse is this? Does the engine still run or does the blown fuse shut it down?

In my experience, and i have a good bit, when you turn the key and it always blows the fuse, the magnets under the flywheel are in direct contact with the stator (alternator). Both will need to be replaced...sorry

    Under the flywheel there is a series of magnets, that is how it is able to produce the power to recharge the battery, sometimes, for no real reason, a magnet will break, causing all the others to break and short against the stator

did u replace the relay just a curious question, sometimes they have rust and water in the inside of the relay but my guess would be that you have a bare wire rubbing somewhere, causing the fuse to blow, anything significant has happened before that issue?

Ignition fuse keeps blowing when i turn the key


It MUST be the starter relay coil - or the power wire that feeds it. Likely a short in the relay coil (AKA starter selenoid).

Fuse keeps blowing


In my experience...if it blows the fuse as soon as you turn the key, under the flywheel, there is a stator that recharges the battery when the engine is running, remove the flywheel, in most cases the magnets under it are broken and are in direct contact with the stator. If that is the case, both must be replaced

Toyota Camry 1994 Main Fuse keeps blowing


-if your fuses are blowing
-the problem is in the wiring
-because if too much amperage flows through the fuse will blow
-there's probably a short to ground somewhere or high resistance after the fuses causing it to draw more amps
