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

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Neon 20 amp FP/ASD fuse #21 keeps blowing

It appears that it is part of the fuel pump circuit, so I would concentrate on wiring harness & connector at fuel pump, clean it real good, and apply dielectric grease to the connection, as well as the fuel pump relay, connector & harness.

SOURCE: 30 amp ignition fuse in engine compartment blows at start

It sounds like a bad ignition switch or something is grounding out.Try to isolate the problem to key positions.See if the fuse blows when you turn the key to ACC(when your dash lights come on without starting)If the fuse does not blow then when you go to start it and it blows it could be one of many problems,the more common ones could be ignition switch,wiring,starter relay,starter soleniod,or perhaps the starter itself is shorting out,this can sometimes happen when a starter goes bad.

SOURCE: Code P1632

These cars had a tendency to "lose" the password for the theft deterrent system. Your body control module doesnt understand your key, therefore tells your pcm to discountinue fuel supply. To reprogram the system, start the engine and let it stall. Leave the key in the run position. The theft light should flash for 10 minutes. When the light stops flashing, Turn the ignition off for 10 seconds. Turn the ignition back to the run position. This procedure tells the BCM that on the next ignition cycle, to accept the new password. Now, it should start. If not, it may require the clearing of the code, and possibly the reprogramming of the PCM, which needs to be done with a dealer scan tool or equivilant.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the diagnosis. It's disappointing that our local Ford service will not advise to help get it running, even to make it in for service."

In most cases the theft deterrent system in your 2007 Chevrolet Impala will reset itself in 10 minutes. You can also remove the fuse for 10 seconds and replace it to reset the system.

Cigarette lighter not working on my pontiac g8

Don't change fuses unless blown. Usually, in the G8, the aux power F14 20 amp fuse blows before either the F22 or the F13. I bet that's what is blown in yours--it's usually what blows in mine.

30 amp fuse keeps blowing i was able to change it and it would start now it just blows at the turn of my key

If the 30 amp fuse blows there is fault or short within the igntion /fuel pump circuit. You need to check this case by ISOLATION. remove connection of the suspected sections one by one and confirm when the fuse blows as the particular circuit is connected.

Keeps blowing Air conditioning fuse

If you are installing the correct amp fuse (usually 20 Amp fuse) you could try putting a 30 amp fuse. If it doesn't blow, then you can leave it on. If it continues blowing it, then you must have a short circuit, take it to an automotive electrician.

99 lumina keeps blowing 5 amp starter fuse, I changed starter about 6 months ago and it quit , now it has started blowing it again. Only sometimes. Will start when I jump starter if fuse blows.it has...

Replace the starter relay in the fuse box behind the glove box. The fuse ONLY powers the control coil portion of the starter relay. If it's blowing, there's a short in the winding or a short between the relay and the theft deterrent module. Bad relay is most likely culprit
