Fuse Keeps on blowing

Last Saturday I was driving down the road and all of a sudden the radio and clock just shut off. When I got out I noticed that the keyless entry didnt work along with the dome lights. Turns out the 30amp audio fuse under the hood blew. I replaced and it worked great until my wife drove it to work this morning. She called me to let me know and I then called the dealer. Its going in next Thursday. I went to put another amp in tonight and as soon as I put it in it blew. I know its an electrical problem and it could be a variety of things but has anyone else had an issue like this? I guess I wont be listening to the radio for a week which sucks. Hissyfit Stuff like this bugs me.

RE: Fuse Keeps on blowing

Sounds like you have an intermittent short. It could be anywhere.

After that head over to www.SorentoNation.com and say hi.

RE: Fuse Keeps on blowing

have you changed anything lately...bulbs, radio, etc... remember my fuse blowing episode the dealership put the incorrect bulb wattage in my tail lights two or three weeks later the heat fused the brake and park elements together and then started to blow the engine fuse, so start thinking back what changed if anything, if nothing then I hope they find it.

That makes sense. Thanks. I'll let the dealer have fun with it on Thursday.

LX, I have yet to change anything. I plan on chaning the radio in a few weeks so hopefully its resolved by then.

RE: Fuse Keeps on blowing

Did it blow right away with the accessory on or the engine running? If it blew without anything turned on, sounds like a grounding problem or two wires are touching somewhere.

RE: Fuse Keeps on blowing

Just discovered the dome lights do work only when I have the switch to the on position. They dont work when they are in the door position.

RE: Fuse Keeps on blowing

talking about blowing fuses...I went to pick up a trailer today, which I have pulled tons of trailers before but this was a new one to Mel...anyway threw the trailer on the ball (didn't hook up ANY wires) put the 4 way hazards on as I usually do don't know why I just do anyway 5 seconds after I heard a loud buzzing sound and the hazards stop working..WTF!?! checked the fuse and it was blown, ok that's weird, popped in another fuse and out of curiosity I checked the signal lights again buzz and then nothing. Remember absolutely no wires are hooked up, ok now the signal light fuse was blown...ok now I'm starting to go nuts what the hell just happened, ok remove that trailer I have to bring this home and figure out what the hell is going on, unhooked the trailer popped in another fuse and everything is working fine.

I have to mention the trailer was a hydraulic dump trailer, so all I can guess there was a bad ground on the trailer but I seen the guy just drop it off and he seemed to have no issues...anyway weird little story I thought I'd share...maybe Mel just didn't like how it was riding on her a$$ and it was telling me it wanted it off.Sun
