Make sure that you have installed a wire fuse inbetween your battery and your amplifier that is the most common reason for blown fuses. without that extra fuse your amp is getting a non limited amount of power from the battery.

Fuel pump fuse blows i 94 chev Lumina van

First, the ground wire coming from the fuel pump needs to be checked for proper grounding. Next the fuel pump power supply wire needs to be checked for chafing or exposed wiring that could short out. If all checked out well, you may need to update the fuel pump harness that plugs to the pump. It comes with a bigger gauge wire to handle the electrical load without popping fuses. This was common on these.

Motor blows fuse

What fuses are they? The whole reason a fuse blows is to protect that circuit from excessive amps that could blow components. Fuses blow for 2 reasons excessive draw on that circuit or a short to ground. You may have a wire rubbing and after a while it touches ground and that's when the fuse will blow. I've also seen it when a wire is touching something that gets hot. what happens is when the engine component gets hot it heats up the insulation on the wire and that is the short but after the engine cools down it goes back to norm.

Fuse keeps blowing

Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and start tracking the wire from the power side of the switch, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

Have an auto electrician look at it.

I had the same problem just last week. It turned out to be the idle regulator. Every time the IR got hot it would blow the fuse. You can drive the car without it attached but get it fixed asap. Got one for $40 from a spare parts place ($200 brand new) and my mechanic mate changed it for me (looked easy enough to do it yourself). Good luck.

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon with auto climate control. The front a/c is working but the fan will not come on. The rear a/s works fine. Checked fuses, they are all good. Any suggestions?

It's most likely your blower motor control module. Easy fix! Remove the kick plate under the glove compartment and the module is right next to your blower motor - remove the two screws and it will drop right out. Disconnect the wire harness (2 wires) and replace. Good luck!

check the ignition hot wire and also check your ignition switch, if you can not find the short area, you have to change the whole wire direct to your fuse box to solve this problem.

wire problem is the hardest case for the car, wish you good luck.
