The fuse for dashboard light keep cutting when i replace the fuse after starting the engine it will cut again
My car has an automatic transmission.
Fuses are placed in electrical circuits to protect against a situation where too much current flows through the wires or components on the fused circuit. If there’s too much current flowing, due say to a short circuit, that could destroy the electrical components on that circuit and/or cause a fire. Usually, when a fuse blows, it means there’s something wrong in the circuit that needs to be repaired. Consequently, merely replacing the fuse doesn’t solve the problem because if the fault (often a short circuit) has not been repaired, once the circuit is re-powered with a new fuse the new fuse will just blow again immediately. To resolve this issue, your best bet is to request an electrical diagnostic and a certified Mechanic from YourMechanic will come to your location and identify the fault in the circuit that is causing the fuse to repeatedly blow.
