What could be causing the front axillary fuse to keep blowing? Even bigger fuses blow.


fuses blow from over current( dead short) they are rated at lower than what is required so that the wire doesn't burn
If you keep putting in bigger fuses without fixing the dead short, eventually the wire will melt the plastic insulation off and the vehicle will burn

Blowing fuses as soon as i turn it on


Sounds like you are overloading the circuit you need to run separate feeds to separate fuses to handle the additional load make sure your wire is the correct gauge for the amperage of the fuses! #10 wire for 30a,#12 wire for 20a etc

Wind shield wiper blowing fuses


You have a short circuit to ground when the switch for the wipers is turned on. It does absolutely no good to keep replacing the fuse until the short circuit has been located and repaired. I guess you are just starting to figure this out five fuses later.

The lesson here is that fuses do not cause electrical circuit failures. Electrical circuit failures cause blown fuses. There are many people that do not understand this.

If the fuse remains intact until you turn the switch on, you will find the problem between the wiper (combination) switch and the wiper motor assembly or the wiper motor itself.

Just bought 2 12 in d3 dual 2 ohm subs with d5 600.4 amp. Need to know how to wire subs. They were in a box already I assumed they were wire at 2 o When i hooked One up to my amp it hit really for Jus...


what wattage are the subs and amp? if your subs are more wattage than your amp, your amp will blow fuses as cant handle the output to your subs. for example. you have 2 500 watt subs and a 300 watt amp, that is no good as amp isnt powerful enough. if you have 2 500 watt subs you need at least a 1200 watt amp to power them both. 200 watt more than the combined wattage of subs as amps should never be turned up to max as they tend to blow and overheat more quickly. 80% volume on amps is reccomended by installers and manufactures.

My sony explode amp model xm-sd61x, 300 watt amp blows fuses as soon as i turn it on, I have it opened up, any suggestions


dissconect the speakers from the amp and power the amp up with no load, if it doesn't blow any fuses, check the resistance on the subs with a DMM to see if they are blown

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

Help my fuse is blow!


If the amp blows fuses only AFTER you send remote turn-on voltage to the amp, the amp probably has blown output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.

Hok up amp and all fuses blow on distribution block


somehow, DC car voltage has gotten to the speaker outputs of your amp! your fuses are saving your speakers from meltdown. your amp has melted down. toss it after checking with ohmeter as follows: disconnect amp completely. red wire from ohmmeter to +12Vin. black wire to SPK+. if ohms are anything below 1000 ohms, then toss it. An electrical short is equivalent to flooding your entire house with a leaky faucet. No telling what that rapid current will encounter along the amplifier section. you could get lucky and find all power MOSFETS have shorted and replace them. good luck.
