It is confirmed you have a short within your set. Please remove and open the set. using a multimeter cross leads from the positive +B to the ground for any short. trace it to the power circuit. you will need to go tracing detaching and checking to arrive at the fault. Look for shorts in the diodes, possible reverse polarity can cause diodes to short. check for power amp. for short , remove the power leads suspected to confirm. I am sure you will arrive at the fault. Good day

A spark plug came out and car is sputtering does this mean i blew a cylinder

No, not necessarily, may have damaged thread in cylinder head for spark plug. Try putting a new spark plug in but screw it in with fingers to make sure thread is not damaged. If it goes in, finally nip it tight with spark plug spanner and try engine again.

2005 Dodge Durango. Amp Shortage?? suspect water leak in area of amp. Now no sound at all. No radio, navigation system, cd player, sattelite radio

many of these 04-06 durangos have a leak problem at the top of the windshield on passenger side which leads to water getting into the passenger kickpanel where the amplifier is located. I had my windshield replaced for a crack and there was rust forming behind the top passenger side of windshield...( same with the rear hatch above the passenger side of the chrome molding that covers the handle. My radio went on and off depending on when it rained. Now it doesn't work at all. I plan to check for fuses related to the amp tonight to decipher whether the fuse just blew or that the amp was fried from the water.

My infinit 300 watt amp was working fine till recently it blew a fuse. i went to install the new fuse but as soon as it made contact to the holder it sparked and melted the tip of the fuse. i checked all...

I sounds like it because if their was a short to ground in the power wire the fuse would have melted if you did not connect the ground cable.

Fuse blew on power now stuck in Protection Mode

Sounds like the out put stage of the amp is shorting, They are either 4 large transistors attached to an aluminium plate (heatsink) or one large chip with heatsink. also sounds as the driver stage went too when you switched it on the second time. If you know nothing of electronics I suggest you take it to an audio repair shop, as it is cheaper to repair than replace high power amplifiers.

Keep blowing fuse under hood when i put power wire in to amp

disconnect the negative battery terminal, replace the fuse with all the wires hooked up to the amp and reconnect the battery terminal, that way the initial surge of power goes through the negative terminal and not your inline fuse. That should solve your problem.

I have put in 3 new fuses into the fuse box on my '04 durango and they all blew. Can anyone tell what I'm doing wrong?

What ever the fuse controls has the problem and needs to be addressed first then replace the fuse. Example; if the fuel pump was shorted to ground every time you put in a fuse, the fuse will blow so the fuel pump circuit would have to be take care of first.
