Q: Repeatedly blowing the same fuse

asked by on

I have a wiring short. I keep blowing the same fuse in my car.

Hi. I can’t help you much without knowing which fuse is blowing. Fuses are designed to blow to protect the circuit in the case off too much current draw. You’re correct that a short can cause a fuse to blow. A technician well versed in the electronics will be able to diagnose any electrical problem and repair your vehicle.
