My Solara Dsc radio, which has worked well for several years, suddenly began blowingthe 2 amp fuse on the red power line whenever the transmit button was pushed on the mic. Why?

No worries here.
According to Uniden, the 6 amp fast blow fuse is the correct one.
Not entirely sure why there'd be a 2 amp with your old radio, but I suspect the radio is good.

Keep blowing fuses on gps 21 pro

Might want to list it in another area. If its blowing fuses you know you have something wrong--if it (I presume it does) has an external unit for power the problem is there. Also be aware not all fuses are the same--a generic fuse like radio shack etc may even if correct amperage pop for no reason.

Either a incorrect fuse (not talking about wrong amperage) or a short in the unit--one or the other.

It keeps blowing my fuse for my stock radio. Pushing a 10" sub.. Fuse on my amp is good. In-line fuse is good. But it keeps blowing the radio fuse in my panel.. ? Please help.. Thanks Ryan

Check the amp turn-on wire. It's a blue/white wire running from the radio to the amp. It's probably label REM at the amp. This wire sends a switched 12 volts from the radio to the amp. It is probably shorting out somewhere between the radio and the amp.

I replaced the stereo systems and for some reason it keeps blowing fuses ...which even the windshild whipers wont work... i change out the fuses and it will work for a short time and blow out again...i...

If you had someone else install this system and you didn't have the fuse blowing trouble before that, and if the fuses don't blow if you aren't using the radio, then they certainly have done something wrong. See a manager and keep pushing to talk to someone higher up. You might also consider contacting the Better Business Bureau in your area if you can't get help.

Now having said all that, there may be a simple wiring error at fault. Most radios have two fused power lines: one is a constant 12-volt line from the battery (to keep the clock going, remember your last settings, and so on) and the other is a 12-volt line that's switched on by the ignition key. This is the one that provides power when the radio is on, and it's got a higher-rated fuse than the other line. If the installer tapped power for the switched 12-volt line from somewhere that is being protected by another, lower-amp, fuse, the radio may just be drawing more current than that fuse can handle. So, poof it goes and anything else on that circuit goes out as well.

Make sure the switched 12-volt line is supplied direct from an accessory connection at the fuse block in the passenger compartment, or before any other fuses if tapping some other circuit for power.

Good luck, and I hope I've been able to help. Thanks for using Fixya!

Radio fuse keeps blowing out

well you can put a bigger fuse in but your risking really messing something up. if it's blowing the same fuse over and over, then you need to move the positive wire. look up the wiring diagram for the car and find the positive wire going to your fuse panal, connect it to that with a 20amp inline fuse and you should be set.

My magnum when i key up it blows the fuse,what could it be?

check your aerial for open/short circuit/power wiring to cb in truck/upgrade the fuse by 1 amp/mike wiring (tx/rx) if the cb shop could'nt find anything wrong then the faults in the truck/aerial/power? or the cb shops not up to much! you could have a faulty output transistor in the cb if all else fails?

Blowing fuse

Your polarity protection diode has been blown. If you tried hooking up your CB and accidentally pushed the plug in backwards. Inside the radio, there are 2 big black diodes near the transformers, D8 and D23. Replace these with the same or bigger. You can the burnt one out and the radio will work, but if you hook it up wrong again, it will fry the radio.
