Im pretty sure this is the system that I have. Bought it in 2005, worked for a few years, one day, went to turn it on, and there was no power, replaced the fuse, and the second I turned the main switch in the back on, I heard it pop the new fuse. Any ideas

Re: Short Circut, blows fuses instantly.
OK usually the fuse goes because the Amp's IC's are drawing too much current thus the fuse blows... either this OR the Power Supply has gone Kaput. It is possible to replace the output IC's.. as it is to fix the PSU.. But it really is a shop job..

Most likely the amplifier you have hooked up to that fuse position is defective and causing the fuse to blow. Or you have a short in the powerline somewhere. Disconnect the power wire from the amplifier, tape up the end so it won't short out to anything. Replace the fuse, if it doesn't blow then you will need to get the amp checked, if it does blow, then you have a short somewhere along your power wire.
If fuse blows instantly when set plugged into power either a generic fuse (lots of these fuses are special and a generic will pop for no reason) or a dead short on the primary side of the power supply.
If fuse blows instantly when turned on a short either in secondary side of power supply or something it feeds.
First to try is get the exact fuse used (buy a pair) and see what happens.
beyond that if secondary side (when set is turned on) have an expert look at the set.
Hi, If the power seat keeps burning out fuses, then the motor in it is drawing too much amperage. There can be something caught in the tracks to the system that is causing enough physical resistance to the motion of the seat of cause this to happen. It does not sound like a short circuit because it would blow instantly. I would get a strong flashlight and a mirror and a hand full of fuses and try to recreate the failure while looking at the mechanism. There may be a cardboard carton jammed up inside the mechanism or a ball point pen refill in the track lodged in such a way as to repeatedly blow the fuses. Hope this helps, Best Regards, Mark
NO ITS JUST A POWER SERGE THE WILL HAPPEN TO AVOID THAT TAKE THE BATTERY GROUND OFF NEXT TIME BEFORE REPLACING THE FUSE ;IF THE FUSE BLOW AFTER THE GROND IS BACK ON CHECK THE RADIO POWER SOURCE THERE COULD BE A SHORT SOME WHERE
there is a possibility that the current load is excessive nor there is a short circuit from elsewhere, do not try to install again a new fuse unless you are certain there is no shortages of any wire from inside the amp and throughout the system by physical inspection
also install the right value for your fuse meaning the right amp and voltage, high temp is an indicator of shortages and defective power transistor
