You have a short in the wire. Follow the wire to the control panel and look for anyplace it may be touching another wire or it may have a bare spot and is shorting out.

Why does the fuse immediately blow on my power door locks? how to fix this?


You have a short somewhere in the system. Maybe one of the lock actuators or a switch. To test disconnect all locks and switch then replace fuse if don't blow start with driver door and reconnect lock check fuse see if it blew if not reconnect switch active lock check fuse see if ok. Continue with each door separate using same steps until fuse no good you will have found short. Replace shorted part.

1998 plymouth breeze hazard flasher fuse keeps blowing


check the hazard switch pull the switch and put a volt meter on the connections with wiring connected to switch if it don't respond or just gives you a L.O your switch is bad and shorting out could happen just from being used a lot or something internal broke switch for that shouldn't be all but 50$ or just go to a parts/scrap yard

I have a 2005 cavilier..it keeps blowing the main 30amp fuse when the ac is turned on..any help


you need to inspect all AC WIRING, to find the SHORT, thats causing the fuse to blow ! donot put another fuse in until you locate the shorted condition, ( bad connection, frayed wire, bare wire touching metal along this circuit, you might have a bad switch, your ac has two switches under hood, one @ high pressure side and one @ low pressure side. and your main control switch, check all wires & connections

I'm betting it has something to do with the shift lock actuator or the harness to the actuator. I'm pretty sure it is located on the top of the steering column on your vehicle. The lower part of the dash will need to be removed and then the steering column lowered in order to gain access to it.

This vehicle does have an airbag and unless you experience with airbag systems I would not recommend tackling this yourself.

unplug the interlock. Replace the fuse. Start the vehicle. with your foot on the brake manually release the interlock with you hand and shift through the gears. If the fuse does not blow your on the right track. If the fuse does blow let me know and I'll get you some more info.

Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for using Fixya.com

I am now having a very similar issue with an av 100 unit I have had for quite some time now. Bought replacement fuses for it the same exact size and they keep blowing as well.. one thing I notice in the original fuse is that there appears to be a resistor in the fuse case.. maybe it requires a special fuse.

A semi-conductor has shorted. It will continue to blow fuses until you replace the shorted component. If you have electronics background, you can locate the short with a multimeter and a schematic diagram.

Fuse keeps blowing out in my maytag washing machine


the power surge probably shorted out something in the main wire harness or fried your motor. remove the screws from the control panel and look for any wires that are discolored, charred or disconnected. in the event you do't find it there trace the wiring thru the cabinet looking for the same thing. if you don't find that, replace the motor
