Power inverters can do this if they are internally shorted or they are being over loaded. If you are just using it to charge a phone or a computer it should not be over loaded. Now if you are charging a computer and running a small cooler at the same time, that may be real close to max which may blow a fuse. Have you tried hooking it straight to the battery to see if it will run what ever you are running. It has it's own fuse so if it has an internal short it will blow that fuse. It if works hooked to the battery and is just blowing the cig lighter or acc. fuse it can be a weak socket. If the socket is hot it may have a loose wire on the back side causing low voltage which can blow a fuse. So hook it to the battery direct, if it works ok there, reconnect it to your acc port and if it is getting hot it may be the weak socket. If it will not run hooked to the battery, it has an internal short and it would be better to buy new than try and fix. Sorry.

The reason its probably blowing the car fuses is because its drawing too much current which blows the fuse which could be a component shorting inside the inverter. This is usually down to either blown Power Transistors , Capacitors or Diodes. Has the same problem with a car amp, kept blowing the fuses and was found out that all of the power mosfet transistors had shorted out and burnt as well as the main diode.
Hope this helps.

Icp/bfc acc fuse keeps blowing


Robert,

Stop changing fuses. There is an overloaded / short circuit connected to the fuse that is blowing. You must locate and clear the source of the fault before continuing. Repeated fuse changing only causes more damage - especially if you increase the size of the fuse. I don't know what "icp/bfc" stands for - but you should contact an automotive electric specialist or purchase the wiring diagram for your car at an automotive supplier to assist you with following / tracing the wire(s) to find the fault.

Good luck!

Toyota Camry 1994 Main Fuse keeps blowing


-if your fuses are blowing
-the problem is in the wiring
-because if too much amperage flows through the fuse will blow
-there's probably a short to ground somewhere or high resistance after the fuses causing it to draw more amps

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...
