The reason they spark is that there is still power and load when you put the fuse in instead of putting the fuse in put a mains light bulb with its terminals onto the fuse terminals and this will safely discharge your capacitors and making sure that your power is off put your fuse in there should be no spark and switch on if the fuse still blows you have faulty gear

If you're replacing fuses with power applied it may be no mystery why they blow. On the other hand, maybe you're providing a discharge path for stored capacitance. Next time, with power OFF and unplugged, short the fuse holder contacts together first to discharge that spark.

Can i hook up a power amp to my Nad 7155 receiver and how


If the Nad has pre-amp out sockets that are currently connected to the power amp in the receiver. Then you can sever those link and put the pre-amp out into your Aragon inputs.
Otherwise I don't see how you can connect the amp.

Dashboard light quit working and heater too and cant lock and unlock doors from inside car but will work with keyless entry


Blew a fuse in the fuse panel by your left foot sitting in the car. Look in the owners manual to see which one is the lighter fuse. It's usually a yellow 20 amp fuse.if you pull it out and look at it,you'll see a wire that loops inside it. If the wire is broken,replace the fuse and keep the screwdrivers out of the lighter socket.Good luck!

My tail light fuse on my92 s-10 just keeps on blowin and when it blows my tail lights and my inside dash lights doint work, howcome it would b doin that??


Check your tail light and other running light sockets for corrosion.
Pull each and every bulb to check it, also check the back side of the socket.
(Your headlights are not part of this circuit.)
Rust or water with rust will conduct enough current to blow the fuses.
Please revert back to the 20 amp fuse, as you may damage the wires leading to the bulbs in places you won't be able to find or fix.
It's unlikely that it's one of the actual light bulbs, all light bulbs tend to go open instead of shorted, but you can check them too.

I strongly suggest your first priority will be to discover why your tail lights are seemingly consuming many times more current than they should. A 30 amp fuse has less resistance than a 10 amp though the difference is hardly measurable.

I suspect when that is sorted out the other faults could disappear without further effort.

It is time to find a circuit diagram and to trace the tail light wiring from the supply to the lamps in order to discover what went wrong.

When right channel is wired it shorts out the power supply. Aragon 8008 when powered up without input and output, no problem. When connected with speakers and line level feed in, the left channel works...


Fuses blow when there is an overload caused by a short circuit. If the speaker you connect up to the amp causes a short. There is either a shorted part in the speaker or the wires to it are touching at some point. Assuming you can sort out the speaker issue and connecting a good speaker with good wiring and it still causes a short and blows a fuse. Then it's likely the output device(s) in the right channel have developed a short themselves. Perhaps as a result of being connected to faulty wiring or speakers.

Does the fuse blow without using the lights or only when you step on the brake? Only when you switch to reverse? Only when you turn on the parking lights? Troubleshoot to which lights are causing the fuse to blow, then access the bulb socket to see if it is shorting out. Remove the bulb(s) and look into the socket for corrosion and burning/melting. Replace any sockets that apprear to be damaged. Let me know if you have more questions.

No, that would be a different one. The one to the ECM ,is a 10 amp. the one to the cig lighter also known as ACC.EX.or lighter, will be 20 amp.or more. i would look for a short, it could be the lighter it self. hope this gives you a starting point,if we can be of any further assistance please let us know Thank you.

125 v 4 amp fuse keeps blowing


if you plugged a 125 volt tv in to a 220 volt outlet you more than likely fried alof of the componets in the tv. Putting a bigger fuse in there is only going to increase the risk of it catching on fire so i would not recomend that. you might replace the power supply and cross your fingers and hope that nothing else cooked when the 220 volts hit it
