Q: Blowing engine 1 fuse every time I start the truck

asked by on

Unplugged all solenoids and sensors, and fuse still blows
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi, thanks for writing in. Usually, when a fuse continually blows, there is likely a short in your electrical system. I would recommend having your vehicle inspected by a qualified technician who specializes in electrical systems. This inspection will include pulling up a wiring diagram of the engine, using a digital multimeter to check for power and resistance at various locations, and a visual inspection of all wiring. Once the cause of this issue is determined, the repair procedure will be more clear.
