The constant 12 volt wire is yellow. The accessory ( switched 12 volt wire) is red. The blue (power antenna) and blue/white (remote amp turn on) are also switched 12 volt wires. Make sure that they are not being grounded.

Vehicle information Center and radio fuses keep blowing at the same time. 96 jeep grand Cherokee limited. Help !

the fuse has only so many loads no actual fuse you.
there are more than one fuse related to a radio, besides the one marked RAD. so... why not tell the exact fuse.......????

we disconnect each to find the one that is shorted.
the fuse prevents the wire fire, so... do not up the amps.
ZJ , jeep it is. 96

fuses 3
FB 12 (fused dimmer to radio and other places
FB 15 main radio power,(run -acc)
PDC 17 dome lights and radio memory wire....

you need to know what fuse, then look in the FSM
and see all things wired to that fuse.
the starting page is
8w-47-2 (radio) (posted 100s of times)

does fuse hold if radio is disconnected?????
lets pretend fuse 12 blows
see page 8w-11-8 fuse 12, feed.
the next page covers fuse 15....
you need to look at all feed wires to the fuse that blows
that includes options, and aftermarket hacks to car.

What would make the fuse under the seat keep blowing

There has to be a short in the line somewhere in order for the fuse to constantly blow. A wire has rubbed against some steel and is causing the fuse to blow. trace the fuse to the link....such as the lights or rear light and check the socket or wiring for a short.

Why does my radio fuse keep blowing?

Because your radio is shorting out or you have a pinched wire somewhere in wire harness. Fastest way to find out is remove radio and disconnect all wires, then plug another fuse in. If it blows than its a wire problem, if it doesn't radio is bad.

Keeps blowing fuses not start

change your stereo wiring. you probably wired it to something wrong. you can either find a constant hot off of the fuse box. or find the radio fuse and wire it to that. the constant hot will allow you to listen to the radio with the ignition key off. beware of killing the battery though.

2005 Mustang GT radio defaults

You are loosing power to the keep alive memory circuit of the radio. I think you may have a defective ignition starter switch. Also there are two hot wires to the radio, one powers the radio, one holds memory and is called the Keep Alive Memory constant power wire. Here is the wiring colors, pull the radio and check the memory power supply wire.
Radio Constant (keep alive memory) 12V+ Wire: Light Green/Purple wire

I think my alternator is bad would this also

NO. The alternator feeds the battery, not your cars systems. The car systems are powered by the battery and the battery is constantly charged by the alternator. If your radio doesn't have power, check the fuse first, then the hot lead to the radio with a test light do not ry to "spark" the wire to test for power as this will blow the fuse. A radio fuse is only a 5 or 10 amp fuse and is very easy to blow out.. If the radio is getting power then the radio has to be replaced
