Re: Fuse problem

Fuses are made to protect the circuit from excessive amps. If the fuses keep blowing, then there are excessive amps traveling through the circuit that fuse is protecting.

Most common cause of blown fuse is a short to ground. This is because the power comes from the battery, through the fuse and gets grounded before it reaches the load, which means the amps aren't being used up in the load, causing the full battery amperage to travel through the fuse, causing it to blow.

Without a DMM the best you can do is look for worn wires where the insulation is worn off and touching something metal, which is causing it to ground. It will be between the fuse and the load on that circuit.

A "load" is anything on the circuit that utilizes the electricity, such as a fan, or light. Switches, relays, splices, diodes, etc do not count as a load.


If you do have a DMM, you can check the circuit that way. I forget the exact procedures for doing so, but if you have a DMM let me know and I'll check for you.
