Keep Blowing Fuses

I feel i have the amp hooked up correctly but everytime i start the vehicle the fuses on the amp blow, I have a fuse at the battery and then the battery wire is running all the way to the amp. I have the ground grounded to the frame under the truck. and the remote wire to a on and off remote wire in hte fuse box. What does this mean, am i missing something or is the amp bad? Thanks

Sounds like the amp is shorting somehow. You are obviously shorting out somewhere between the battery and the amp. Are you sure you grounding location is a good one? is the fuse blowing only when you turn the stereo on? Something is not hooked up correctly.

If the fuse at the battery is blowing then it's a short.

If the fuse on the amp is blowing then its probably a bad amp.

My power pack has no power at the leads to jump start my vehicle


are you connecting the power pack correctly. When jump starting the red power lead goes on the positive battery terminal (+ to + ) and the black lead goes on the engine (- to -) not the battery as this stops a power surge that can destroy the ECM. Blowing fuses indicates that you may be connecting black to red and this amounts to a dead short which will blow fuses.

Kia 2000 sportage auto keep blowing fuse when starting can you tell me what is wrong


well, blowing fuses is caused by a short, has the vehicle had anything done to it before the fuses started blowing ??? and what fuses are blowing, if it is the main fuses that are 200 amp, then it could be caused by faulty wiring, or bad earth.......trust me if it is the 200 A fuse that is blowing, you will be very happy that it is, because if the manufacturer did not put that fuse there, you would be facing a vehicle fire.....i would trace the fault, or have an auto-electrician diagnose for you

Keep blowing fuses under hood.


REMOVE THE FUSES ONE AT A TIME FOR EACH ITEM ON THE 50 AMP CIRCUIT. I WOULD START WITH THE POWER WINDOW FUSE FIRST. IT WOULD BE THE MOST LIKELY SOURCE OF A HIGH VOLTAGE DRAW. THEN GO ON TO THE WIPERS AND SO FORTH.

Difficulty wiring into GM harness


well if your trying to actively wire it up with the car battery still connected that is why you are blowing fuses. just a heads up too if you have a live connection while hooking up the cd player you could short out other electrical devices and you could be in alot more trouble thatn just blowing fuses. the black wire is what is blowing fuses its because you have it hooked up wrong to a wire that is sending voltage not recieving voltage. ground the black wire to the actual chassis instead of hooking it to the ground wire from the harness or whatever color its grounded to which shouldnt be anything but black if you have the black wire hooked up to ANYTHING that isnt black that is why you are popping fuses. so hook up the red yellow and make your own ground you shouldnt have any problems after that.

Blowing of fuses


The reason your blowing fuses is the amp needs at the least a 150 amp fuse on the wire that runs to your bat. There are fuse blocks that you can put 4 40amp fuse and theres the high dollor ones that you can put all the way to 200amp. When you trun up your amp its drawing to much current for the little 40 amp fuse that you have and will blow it everytime. I recomend Running a 4 gage wire to bat and ground with same. Get you a 150 or above amp fuse from a car audio shop somewhere. anyway sounds like from what you decribed, theres nothing wrong with your amp just the wires and fuse are not big enouf to handle the current that your amp pulls.

Blowing fuses


Here are some answers:

1. Make sure your amp does not have a higher amp rating then the fuse, For example, an 18 amp amplifier will blow an 15 amp fuse, so connect it to a 20 amp fuse

2. you have a connection issue, where something is shorting out

3. you are pushing the amp or car to it's limit with how loud you put it, and thus blowing it, fixed by getting a more powerful amp and a better fuse.

4. or there is something very wrong and cannot help you and you would have to bring it into a shop.

Lanzar amp


If it keeps blowing fuses then #1 its internally damaged or "blown" .. Or #2 i would make sure you have the battery power hooked up to the + terminal and the ground wire running from the car body to the - terminal.. so if its hooked up correctly and keeps blowing fuses then it requires repair.. I wish i had better news but thats all it can be...
