I just ran into this problem recently myself. I traced every wire from front to back on my riding mower, looking for a wire that rubbed through to the frame. I recommend you do the same. Look for wear spots in wires to see if they rubbed through to short out. Sometimes problems like these can be an ignition switch. I ended up removing the engine shroud and flywheel and found the magnets on the inside of my flywheel came loose and grounded out against stator. I replaced stator and expoxied flywheel magnets back in place and mine runs well again. This was probably the worst electrical problem I have run in to. I hope this information helps you.

1995. Why does the engine fuse keep blowing?


If that is the only instance to blow the fuse; when the contact key is turned 'ON' the relay sets priority to 'start engine' mode, like directing the power to the starting accessories, now when instead you activate something else, the circuit is overloaded: Puff

There is no reaction when turning the key to start the car


Turn key to On.
Turn on headlights manually... Do they come on?
Are there any lights on the dash?
If yes to these, battery is possibly not the sole problem.
Check for good, tight and clean connections at battery terminal posts!
If yes to above, continue on & get a helper... Turn key past on, to Start position.
Do you hear a click sound at time key is turned to Start?
If yes, then ignition switch is not problem, starter relay is getting power, and is now sending power to starter, but starter is not working.
Pic any No's... Then look there.
Good luck.

My 1982 gs550 L will start fine but when it turns off the main fuse will blow every single time!


If you don't start the bike....just turn it on and off...does the fuse blow...or only if engine starts and stops?

If not starting engine still blows fuse, and it only blows shutting key off...I would inspect ignition switch for a short.

When i turn my key to the start position the ignition start/run fuse blows. 2004 ram 1500 3.7 engine


probably a bad starter solenoid, first remove the negative battery cable, then remove the two wires from your starter, wrap them in black tape so they wont short out on anything, repl,ace your fuse and hook battery back up and turn key to start, no blown fuse-bad starter, if it blows the fuse it's a wiring short and you should take it to a qualified mechanic

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.
