Why does a 30 amp fuse blow everytime you try to start your 1996 Crown Victoria?

Check starter relay. Usualy if a fuse blows that fast it's a sure sign of a major electical short. A 30amp fuse is a heavy fuse which means it's got a heavy load. That kind of a short is a direct short. Starter relays have heavy wiring thats one place to start.If a car blows a fuse like that it's the best kind to have, a lot easer to diagnose than a intermitted short.

How do you fix a short in the tailights in 1996 Nissan 200sx?

By short do you mean it is blowing the fuse. If not, that is not a short. A short circuit means the power wire is grounding out to the negative wire or the metal in the car which is also a negative component of the electrical system. That will blow the fuse. If the light just goes out but the fuse is fine it is a bad connection or a bad ground, corrosion in the light socket, a broken wire or bulb going bad. Another sign of a bad ground is when the brakes are applied the tail lights go out and the brake lights don't light up or they light very dim. Same with the turn signal also.

How do you know head gasket is blown?

I usually hook up a pressure tester to the radiator for about 20 minutes or so...pull the spark plugs out then crank over the motor. If the head gasket is blown then antifreeze will usually have gotten into the cylinder that has the blown section of the head gasket. When you crank over the engine then antifreeze will squirt out of the cylinder with the antifreeze in it. Also smell the exhaust.. can you smell antifreeze in the exhaust. Is there white smoke coming out of the tailpipe ? That is also a sign of a bad head gasket. Finally. Does the car overheat after a short period of driving ? Yet another sign of a bad head gasket.

How do you know if car fuses are bad?

If a component or an accessory such as the radio, or lights doesn't work, than that is a good sign a fuse is blown. When you suspect that a fuse is bad, find out where it is in your owners manual. Most cars have 2 fuse boxes. One should be somewhere under the hood. The other should be located behind a panel under the dashboard on either the drivers, or passenger side of the car. When you find the right fuse box, look at the diagram on the lid of the fuse box, study it carefully, and determine which fuse is the one that you are looking for, such as; fuel pump, or headlamps. If there isn't a diagram, check the owners manual, it should have a list numbering them. When you find the fuse, gently pull it out of its place, and inspect it. You will see a bridge going from one side of the fuse to the other. If the bridge is connected, that the fuse is fine. If there is a gap in the bridge, than that means the fuse is bad. If you are unsure, pull out another fuse from a part that you know works; and compare them. Be sure to replace a fuse of the same amperage (the number on the top of the fuse) if you replace it your self.
