Q: My 98 Dodge neon fuel pump fuse keeps blowing?

asked by on

I keep having to replace my fuel pump fuse. Why does it keep blowing?
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the fuel pump fuse keeps blowing then the most common cause of this the fuel pump in the tank is drawing too many amps and blows the fuse after it overheats. Replace the intank fuel pump and the filter.
