Q: Fuses keep blowing for the fuel pump

asked by on

What could be causing the fuses to the fuel pump to blow when you turn the key? It doesn't happen all the time you can drive the car and turn off and then back on and everything works. But then it could happen the next time and then keep blowing them when you replace them.
