Probably a bad fuel pump. Disconnect the wiring harness at the fuel pump and put in a new fuse. If it doesn't blow and you have 12 volts at the pump with the key on, replace the pump. If your fuse still blows, you have a short in the wiring somewhere.

Why does fuel pump fuse keep blowing?

Check to insure that you are replacing the fuse with the same fuse size and type (fast blow fuses don't substitute for slow blow.) If this is ok the either the pump relay or the pump is going bad and drawing too much power for the fuse to handle.

Why would a 1990 Chevy 2500 blow the ignition ECM fuse?

Not sure why blowing but if you can look in owners manual or chiltons to see what else is on the same circuit for example fuse #2 may have fuel pump and cigar lighter on the same circuit and if something metal falls into cigar lighter it will blow the fuse each time a new fuse is put in. Hope it helps. Also on my 1989 Chevy 2500 I had the same problem and I had a short in some wiring running along the driver side frame rail by the fuel filter.

Why does a 2003 Kia Spectra blows the fuel pump fuse if there are no wiring problems connecting the fuel pump?

your fuel pump is either bad or the sock filter is cloged. When your fuel pump wears out it draws more current, it drags. solotion , replace fuel pump, do not use larger fuse , it could cause a fire. This is a common problem with all cars and trucks, when fuse starts to blow over and over replace worn out fuel pump. Hope this helps.

Either a bad fuel pump (most likely) or a short in the wiring somewhere. Suggest you disconnect the wiring from the fuel pump, put a new fuse in and see if it still blows. If no blow, bad fuel pump. Still blows, short in the wiring somewhere.

Why would the fuel pump fuse blow on a 1997 Ford Explorer?

A fuse blows if it is drawing more amps then the fuse is rated to handle, or if there is a short. I suspect your fuel pump is starting to develop a problem, BUT DON'T USE A HIGHER RATED FUSE BECAUSE YOU CAN CAUSE AN ELECTRICAL FIRE !

1992 Chevy s-10 blows 15 amp fuse even with key off and is related to ecm b electronic control module fuel pump and it doesn't start because it gets no gas help?

It's possible that the fuel pump has gone bad and draws too much current, blowing the fuse. Try disconnecting the electrical connection to the fuel pump, then replace the fuse. If the fuse doesn't blow, you should suspect the fuel pump. Even if that's not the problem, use a similar plan to go through the rest of the circuit to see what's causing the fuse to blow.
