If the red wire scraped against the firewall on the way to battery due to sharp edges on the metal it will just short out. It has a dead short somewhere in the wiring or in the CB itself thats why it is just popping fuses as soon as they are installed.

Why does the fuse keep blowing on my cub cadet ltx 1050


A fuse blows because the circuit it provide power to has a shorted component or wire.

It was running fine parked it went to get it had blown fuse tried to put new fuse in and it blew as soon as it made contact. key was in off position and all other switches where off


Sounds like there is dead short somewhere, look for metal touching wires or terminals, or exposed wires touching the dash frame or floor under the carpet.

Issue of fuse constantly blowing.


Is the fuse correct amperage rating. There is to much power going to fuse. If it is the correct fuse you have a short most likely ? wire touching metal. The power lose is because this is main fuse.

My 89 civic lx keeps blowing the battery fuse everytime I connect the battery


My first guess would be a short inside the alternator, so if you have replaced it, look for a shorted wire in the harness.
Disconnect the wires from the alternator and everything connected to the battery, then connect one at a time until the fuse blows.
Could be a problem with the starter solenoid too.

I have a uniden pc68ltw cb radio and it keeps blowing the 2amp in line fuse i tried a 5amp but still blows the fuse.i hooked it into another truck to test it but still blew the fuse. something wrong with...


Hello,

have you been using the uniden pc68ltw cb radio without the fuse blowing before?

If the uniden pc68ltw cb radio has not been blowing fuse before, then might be a problem from the radio. This problem should be a power related problem.

The fuse blowing means there is excess of current. So while your trying to refuse, thicken the wire.

Best regards.

Fuse #13 blows when i put new one in how do i fix the problem


its going to be hard without a wire diagram. but a fuse blowing right when you put it in means that a wire is touching ground when its not supose to. this is offten due to a cut in the wire that is touching something metal in your car. your going to have to trace the wire from the fuse box and see where it goes

Tail lights don't work, although break lights work. when fuses are replaced they burn out as soon as you turn the lights on the fuse goes out.


You have a hot wire shorting to ground.Another words there's a wire that has power(12V) going through it(when you turn on the lights) and it is touching either another wire thats connected to metal(ground) or the 12V wire itself is touching metal causing it to blow the fuse.You or an honest mechanic has to find out all the accesories (like cigarette lighter, electric door locks,and others) that are connected with the light fuse.One of these accesories may have the short thats blowing the fuse.

Blowing fuses with wiring CB to battery


Is the wire going to the battery touching chasis ground at all? Accidentally pinched it, cut wire etc? If not the the power supply may be fried.
