That's a heavy short. What are the auxiliaries? could be the cigarette lighters or other optional devices. There is likey a major bad part or direct shorting wire (cut insulation) (Loose wire touching ground). Look first at the cover or in the manual to point you in the right direction. if none then look near and behind every cigarette lighter connection in the vehicle. Just last week I stacked some of these up wondering why I had them since I have never had a short take one out....

Pontiac g8 theft deterrent fuse keeps blowing. You can put a 30 amp in place of the 2 amp and the car will start, but it will blow a 2 amp fuse.

will need to determine why the component is drawing to many amps, not a good idea to use a 30 amp fuse as could cause the componet to overheat and even catch fire, need to be seen by a auto electrician

Brake light fuse keeps blowing in my 1997 Suburban only when towing trailers.

If the fuse blows on different trailers then it's all down to the vehicle. You either have incorrect wiring on the vehicle, a short OR the fuse is not of a high enough value to cope with the additional brake lights? You could try removing all the trailer bulbs EXCEPT the brake lights - e.g. if it's trying to power up the indicators too? That would stop the fuse blowing...... OR remove the brake bulbs from the vehicle & see if it operates the trailer without blowing...... Check the total wattage of ALL the brake lamps & see if the fuse is actually of a high enough rating? Be aware though that increasing the value of the fuse could cause damage elsewhere! As a rough guide a 25 watt bulb will pull around 2 amps at 12 volts - so 4 bulbs may pull up to 8 amps & clearly blow a 5 amp fuse! If in doubt take it to an auto electrician...... The wiring needs to be correctly protected!

What will cause a 30 amp auto shutdown fuse to blow

Depends what this fuse is for if its for the charging circuit and supplies power to the alternator then 30 amps is too low and this would blow the fuse .You will need to follow the output from this fuse with a continuety meter to see if it is the alternator feed wire which would be the big thick one on the alternator as the output of the alternator will far exceed 30 amp

The air bags in the back wont raise the back end up and it keeps poping the 30 amp fuse in the front power box

You need to check and see if your pump is running,if it is running for long periods of time I would say you have a hole in either your air bags or an air line causing the pump to run way tooo long,if your pump does not kick on and you are blowing fuses you need disconnect the pump,if you still blow fuses then you have a short in the actual wiring,if your fuse does not blow then you have a bad pump.

Change fuse and everytime I do it blows

You have a short. Find out what the fuse powers. (As an example, if it's for the auxilary power point, or lighter, remove it and try the fuse again. Or...if the wiper fuse is blowing, unplug the wiper motor harness and try it, if it doesn't blow, the motor is the issue.)
