How would you fix a fuse that blows every time you try to push the button that lets your seat back?
I would check the wires coming out of that button. There's a short here somewhere. If you cannot find a bare wire, the motor itself has shorted out.

93 dodge shadow your tail lights aren't working every time you replace the fuse and turn on the headlights the fuse blows whats could be worng and how do you fix it?
Answer . \nShort in the wiring.
Answer . There is a strong possibility that SOMETHING is connected wrong or shorted to ground.. Answer . \nIf I remember right there is a harness under the seat that ge…ts chaffed, and causes the short. Not to say this is the case for sure. But a spot to check..
How do you fix the horn when every time you touch the door locks the horn blows and will not stop unless the fuse is removed on a Jeep Grand Cherokee?
Sounds like your alarm (factory alarm). Go to the passenger side or the liftgat and unlock using your key and it should stop. Mine does it and I cringe everytime I unlock it..….
A/C clutch is bad . \nThe armature in the air conditioning clutch is either shorting to gound, or is worn to the point that it no longer provides adequite resistance.
What causes the horn and flasher fuse to blow out every time you try to replace it on a 1984 Toyota 4WD pickup?
Answer . \nThe reason they are blowing, as soon as you install them, is because there is a short somewhere, in the flasher/horn wiring. Have you or anyone else, done anythi…ng electrical, to the truck lately, added something or tapped into the flasher/horn circuit for any reason. There is usually a common denominator, when a circuit all of a sudden, starts blowing fuses. \n. \nI suggest you buy a circuit breaker, with the correct amperage rating and start there. Put it in the horn/flasher slot in the fuse box. You will hear the device "pop" when it blows, but unlike a fuse, it will reset in a few seconds, then it will again "pop" breaking the circuit, and reset itself again. This gives you a way to check the circuit, without using up every fuse you own. Get yourself a copy of the wiring diagram, and start at the end of the circuit, working towards the fuse box. On a 23 year old truck, good chance it's a worn wire. Eyeball the wiring in the bad circuit. The under side of the wire, the part you can't see, is where most shorts occur, as over time the insulation will wear away, allowing the wire to touch metal, and "Poof" there goes your fuse. \n. \nTake your time, and don't rush it, finding a shor,t can be a real test of your patience. If you have to stop the work for any reason, no big deal, just leave it as is, drive it if you have to, and when you get time to continue again, pick up where you left off.
What would case a 1995 buick park avenue to blow a fuse when adjusting the power seats only when trying to recline back?
Answer . Regardless of the make and model of your vehicle, AND AS A MATTER OF FACT, ANY TIME a fuse "blows," it does so because the circuit in which it is located, and whic…h it is intended to PROTECT, has experienced either a SHORT CIRCUIT, or some kind of overload event which has cause more electric current to flow through the circuit than the wire(s) is capable of carrying.. Since you say that the fuse failure occures when trying to recline the back "only," that indicates that it is that portion of the several circuits [one for each function [up-down, forward-back, etc.] of the seat control.. Find the solenoid/motor which controls the seatback position, then carefully trace the wires from that device, particularly the HOT wire which carries battery current to that motor.. Look for wire on which the insulation has been partially cut through, or pinched against or by a sharp grounded metal edge of the seat frame or the vehicle's body sheet metal. Once the short has been removed, and the insulation repaired or replaced, the fuse should not fail with use of the seat recliner.. On the other hand, IF there are no shorts in the wiring or switches, it is possible that the problem is in the recliner motor, or the solenoid controlling it. Good luck.j3h.. I had a similar problem with my driver's seat recliner. The reclining adjuster motor just didn't run anymore. The cause was found to be lack of lubrication of the drive cables that come out of the small motor located under the seat right in the center of the seat. I sprayed WD-40 on the drive shaft of both sides of the small motor and then on the input shafts of the gear boxes on both left and right hinges of the seat back. It solved the problem. While down there I also lubricated the other two motors and their respective gear boxes. Now the seat operates as new in all directions.
Answer . Check to see if water is getting into the brake light sockets causing them to short to ground
You keep trying to replace a fuse on your 1988 camaro but every time it touches the box it blows what causes this?
You have a short circuit that keeps blowing the fuse. Find and repair the short before putting a in new fuse.
Why is my 20amp fuse blowing each time i try to start my grand jeep 1998. no markings on small fuse box to let me know what the fuse services. please help.?
Are there any numbers assigned to the specific fuse slots? I have 3 fuse box diagrams for jeep. You would have to look and compare. Found in Chiltons manual,chassis eleclrical…,chapter 6. Schematics provided for entire engine electrical also.
You have bad ground in the switch
2002 Volkswagen Beetle keeps blowing radiator fan fuse every time fans try to kick on what would cause this?
this is usually caused by the fan motor pulling too much current. your fan motor windings and armature could be throwing solder, or the bushings are getting tight. either way,… it may be time for a new cooling fan.
Fuses That "Blow" Repeatedly . Fuses and Circuit Breakers are safety devices designed and installed in electrical circuits TO PROTECT the conductors [wires] from short circu…its and overload conditions which can cause extreme overheating that can result in damage to the insulation and the conductors, and worse, the possibility of a FIRE which could destroy the vehicle, house, or other structure. . When a fuse and replacement fuses blow, especially if it happens repeatedly, is an indication of an UNSAFE CONDITION in that circuit, usually a short. . The proper "fix" is for a qualified technician, who knows what he/she is doing, to troubleshoot the circuit, find and identify the defect, and make proper repair [s], BEFORE replacing the fuse again [with the properly sized fuse or circuit breaker]. Some ignorant few will suggest installing a larger fuse or breaker to solve the problem, BUT that will only amplify the problem, not solve it. . Do not follow "bad" advice and install a larger fuse in a misguided attempt to correct the problem. To install a larger fuse would almost guarantee damage to the wiring and an electrical system fire.
Best friend who is pushing you about and telling you what to do - every time you try and stand up to her she just pushes you back down - what should you do?
Have you tried using "I" statements instead of saying "You're always pushing me around" you can say, "I feel terrible when you do...". If you have given it your best shot and …there is nothing left to salvage from the friendship, I would have to tell you that the friendship is not worth saving.
Fuses That "Blow" Repeatedly Without being able to "hands on" troubleshoot the circuit served by the repeatedly blowing fuse, none of us can identify the specific defe…ct which is causing your problem . Therefore, the following generic answer can be applied to any electrical circuit , whether in a vehicle, or in a building, whether direct current [DC], or alternating current [AC]. Fuses [and Circuit Breakers] are safety devices designed and installed in electrical circuits TO PROTECT the conductors [wires] and other components from short circuit conditions and/or overload conditions which cause an extremely large flow of electrical current [measured in Amperes], which causes overheating of the conductors that results in damage to the insulation and the conductors. And in a worst case scenario, the probability of a FIRE which could destroy the vehicle, house, or other structure in which the circuit is located. When a fuse or Circuit Breaker [and replacement fuses, or repeatedly "tripping" Circuit Breakers] "blow," especially if it happens repeatedly, is an indication of an UNSAFE CONDITION in that circuit, usually a short . The fuse or circuit breaker is doing what it was designed, intended, and installed to do; that is to protect the conductors and components of the circuit which it serves. The proper "fix" for this issue is for a qualified technician, who knows what he or she is doing, to troubleshoot the involved circuit, find and identify the defect, and make proper repair [s], BEFORE replacing the fuse again [with the properly sized fuse or before resetting a circuit breaker]. Some ignorant few people will suggest installing a larger fuse or breaker to solve the problem, BUT that will only increase the hazard, not correct it. Do not follow "bad" advice by installing a larger fuse in a misguided attempt to correct the problem. To install an oversized fuse would almost guarantee damage to the wiring and the probability of an electrical system fire.
There is a short-circuit somewhere in the taillight wiring that is causing a large current to flow through the fuse and blowing it. Fix the short, then install a new fuse. Th…is can be tough. A car I had several years ago did something similar, and it turned out that the problem was a shorted backup switch on the transmission. I spent several hours tracing wiring diagrams at the local Chrysler-Dodge dealer.
In Car Horns
I have a 1991 Ford Escort every time that I press on the horn from the steering wheel it blow the fuse. How can I fix it.?
Check the Horn wiring and if this is good then replace the horn.
