This will happen when there is a hot wire touching within the wiring scheme or, it could be merging circuitry within the radios main circuit board, which is mainly heat related and will happen over a long period of usage.

I recommend running a complete wire check form the radio and o the amp and all speakers. check the main radio wire harness for worn or lose connectors. make sure the ground is secure and the hot wire isn't crossing.

In most cases, this will be caused by merging circuits within the radio itself.if this is the case, you will have to replace the radio.

Please rat and have a great weekend:)

Why do fuses blow

PA Amplifier blows fuses


The fuse is blowing due to an overload. It's often and very likely caused by a transistor or ic that has gone short. The main culprits are the power transistors of the amp or whatever is on the big heat sink. Transistors will show the fault when you connect an ohmmeter to the terminals. It will be just like you have touched the test prods together! I don't think in your case it will be in the power supply. It's often caused by speaker cables that touch together.

I have a Peavey Cs 400 amp that keeps blowing the 4amp fuse as soon as I turn it on any ideas


Fuses blow when there's an overload. This is usually caused by a transistor or IC that has shorted. You should look to the main amp as the most likely cause. If the main amp has transistors, then a test with an ohmmeter will show the faulty part. Connecting across the terminals will show the same as when you touch the test probes together. If you don't see a hole in the part first!

your inline fuse wouldn't blow if there was just something wrong with the amp. the amp fuse would blow if that was the case. something is faulty with your wiring. you probably have the wires touching somewhere or are in the wrong terminals at the amp or on the wrong battery terminal. or your power wire is grounding out somewhere. its not the amp. its your wiring

I have a dual XIA3145 580 watt amp that keeps blowing fuses


Generally, this indicates that there's at least one shorted output transistor.

Disconnect all speaker wires from the 'amplifier's speaker terminals' and disconnect RCA/signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the speakers/wiring need to be checked. If it still blows the fuses, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

I'd recommend using two 10 amp fuses. The amp will power up with 10 amp fuses if there is no problem. If there is a problem, there's less of a chance of doing more damage by using the 10 amp fuses.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

My 20 amp fuse for my radio, cd player, and clock keeps blowing?


I had the same problem, with the blowing fuses and all. I solved this by re-routing the wires to a new power source, and of course it should be equiped with a fuse, try that and if not take the car to a mechanic and see if he can find the wire that is live and bare. Normally this happens when a live wire touches gound somewhere on your car can causes the fuse to blow, hope I helped a bit...

Help my fuse is blow!


If the amp blows fuses only AFTER you send remote turn-on voltage to the amp, the amp probably has blown output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.
