Ok you didn't list any model or brand, but typically you have a short, which means some electrical device is grounded, and so when you turn the switch on, it blows the fuse. Now is it when you turn the switch on? or when you turn it to start. If it is just when you turn it on, then typically the only things in circuit are the Fuel shut off solenoid (if it has one) hour meter (if it has one) alternator. You can follow the wiring, and look for bare wires, and then disconnect each device one at a time. If it blows when you try to start it , then it could be in one of the safety switches such as clutch pedal, clutch control (relay or switch) or even the starter solenoid.

TURN KEY BLOWS FUSE RIGHT AWAY


There is a short to ground causing the fuse to blow. Trace all wires from IGN and look for one that may have been damaged.

There is no reaction when turning the key to start the car


Turn key to On.
Turn on headlights manually... Do they come on?
Are there any lights on the dash?
If yes to these, battery is possibly not the sole problem.
Check for good, tight and clean connections at battery terminal posts!
If yes to above, continue on & get a helper... Turn key past on, to Start position.
Do you hear a click sound at time key is turned to Start?
If yes, then ignition switch is not problem, starter relay is getting power, and is now sending power to starter, but starter is not working.
Pic any No's... Then look there.
Good luck.

Ford 99 Taurus ignition fuse keeps blowing every time key is turned


A bad something, yes.
The fuse may be the primary fuse for the key switch. If it is, you would need to disconnect the key switch harness and check for a short to ground on each circuit.

30 amp Starter/Ignition fuse keeps blowing when i turn the ignition key. The instrumentpanel lights are dim and then the fuse blows.


I am assuming you are talking about the circuit that powers the key switch. I'm showing a fuseable link to the starter relay instead of a fuse.
If it is the circuit that powers the switch, I would disconnect the switch and see if the fuse blows as each circuit is powered one at a time using a jumper wire. You can get 30amp circuit breakers that plug into the fuse slot to use while you are testing circuits.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to find out what is powered by that fuse since it is most everything on the car.

Why does my efi fuse keeps popping 1999 chevy prizm


Pull the EFI relay, replace the fuse, and see if it blows when you turn the key on. If it does not turn the key off, reinstall the EFI relay and remove the circuit opening relay/fuel pump relay. Turn the key on. If the fuse blows than we know the problem is One of the O2 sensors, the IAC, the purge solenoid, or the ECM You can unplug the O2 sensors, iac, and purge solenoid. Replace the fuse, turn the key on, and plug them in one at a time until the fuse blows. Replace that component. If the fuse blows with those unplugged than its probaly the wiring and possibly the ECM. let me know what you find and I'll help you more if needed.

I have a 1986 Corvette that blows the 10amp fuse for the fuel pump. How can I determine the cause?


If the fuse blows after turning the ignition key to the "on" position you might try disconnecting the electrical connector to the fuel pump and turning the key to the "on" position. If the fuse still blows there is a short in the wiring to the fuel pump. If the fuse does not blow it is more than likely the fuel pump.

Fuse keeps blowing


In my experience...if it blows the fuse as soon as you turn the key, under the flywheel, there is a stator that recharges the battery when the engine is running, remove the flywheel, in most cases the magnets under it are broken and are in direct contact with the stator. If that is the case, both must be replaced
