fuses blow because of excessive current flow from a dead short to earth. You haven't stated which fuse blows and what the items are covered by that fuse. so check the power wire from that fuse and trace it until you find a burnt area or a place where the power wire is touching the body before it gets to something it is running

A/t Cont fuse Nissan Navara keeps blowing


Fuses only blow if the load is heavier than it is designed for. Most likely causes are, Shorted wire. Defective part To small fuse. If you have the correct fuse then somewhere in the wiring circuit is asking for too much. You need a good electrical tech to find out your cause. If it blows the fuse once a month then this can be a pain in the rear to find the cause. Most wiring is made very durable. Look for damaged areas, or where work has been performed in the past and wiring has been disturbed and not properly secured. Look for alterations, Hope that helps.

20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing on my 2003 dodge stratus


SOunds like a closed short in the ignition system. The actual ignition could be at fault. The starter may be at fault. Pinched or exposed wiring touching the chassis or another live wire may be the cause. Check your manual to be sure the 20 amp fuse is the proper fuse for the ignition system. It may just be to low of an amp and may be a 25 to 60 amp fuse or more. Only use the recommended size of fuse as using too high a amperage in a fuse can cause bigger problems if the fuse does not blow in time. These fuses serve a purpose to save the electrical and electronic parts form unnecessary damage.

Headlight fuses keep blowing


You have a short circuit somewhere in the wiring. Either a cut or bare wire. If not, the headlamp is causing the short. Last resort, use a higher amp fuse (but this may compromise wiring system).

Fuse #109 keep blowing/ driver seat not working please help


If the fuse keeps blowing, I assume it is because you keep replacing it. Those fuses have given up their lives to keep your truck from burning to the ground. Each time a fuse blows, the wires in the system get heated up and weakened. If you keep replacing the fuse, the insulation will eventually burn off of the wires and light the entire truck up. There is a shorted component or wire on one of the circuits that are protected by that fuse. Replacing the fuse without locating and repairing the reason that it blew, will only result in another fuse having to give up its life to keep your truck from roasting and all the other fuses will have died in vain.
The circuits to that fuse will need to be traced, using the wiring diagrams for your vehicle and the proper equipment necessary for performing tests on your electrical system. Nobody online can tell you what the actual cause of the problem is (other than tell you there is a short) without performing the necessary tests on the vehicle itself.

THE IGN A FUSE UNDER THE HOOD KEEPS POPPING


You have a serious short. The fuse is keeping you from frying the electrical system. Did you make any changes to the vehicle recently? Is it all stock electrical? If so, check the Ignition relay in the alternate fuse panel. If that does not work, post a reply and I'll help you dig further. Hope this helps
