You're going to need to do more research. Get a wiring diagram of the vehicle and find out what else is on the circuit. You may need to remove individual components from the line and re-connect them individually until you find out which one blows the fuse. This particular problem may take some investigating and a lot of time. It's all trial-and-error.

I had this problem with my Breeze and at first I could change the fuse and it would be fine for days maybe even weeks then became more frequent. took to shop it was the cylinoid on the starter causing the problem

I had the same problem. Putting in a new starter relay and changing out the battery cables fixed the issue.

either a dead starter or a bad ignition coil would be my guess

It would help to know what model and year vehicle you have but my guess would be the starter solenoid is stuck on.

Dead battery, corroded or loose battery or starter cables, defective starter or starter solenoid, loose ground connection.

if it is in fact the starter, it is probably engaging the flywheel. starter may be faulty.

check the wiring change the starter relay and clean ignition switch with electicial cleaner.

might be starter relay, or the crank circuitry from the switch or to the starter from the relay. I would trace back from the starter to the starter relay back through the neutral safety switch to the ignition switch.

I had a 96 Stratus that would do that, and it turned out to be that the starter was bad.

Did you just put a starter on it ??? Sounds like the starter wires are on the starter wrong are thay are shorted out. CHECK THE WIRES GOING TO THE STARTER CLOSELY.

If it blows when cranking the starter has failed.

First, make sure your all of your electrical connections and fuses are good. (battery cables are not corroded and cable to starter and ground are good) If they are good, it sounds like you either have a bad ignition switch or starter. You might try having someone turn the ignition switch to start position while using a multi-tester to see if you are getting power to the starter. If you are getting power to the starter, and it won't engage, chances are you need a new starter. If you do not have power to the starter, you might have a bad ignition switch. In certain circumstances you might try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the ignition switch to see if it will engage. If it will, I would look to a bad starter. I have found that a majority of the time, a starter is the problem, not the ignition switch. Hope this helps.

A fire in the jet pipe would. the blow out circuit is used to blow out a jet pipe fire during ignition. this circuit stops the starter motor thus cancelling the ignition and fuel flow.

No gas Ridiculous...hoping that there is gas in your car...I would say either the starter or the ignition switch. When you get the car started, take it to autozone and let them do a free diagnostic on your alternator, battery, starter and ignition module.

Would be in the distributer or the ignition module

User Avatar

I had the same problem. I took it to a mechanic and they told me it was the ignition switch.

User Avatar

my first thought would be to check the starter . if you can tap on the starter and it starts after that..you have a bad starter .

User Avatar

The small purple wire on the "S" terminal of an older GM vehicle starter would lead to the ignition switch. With the key in the start (crank) position, the purple wire signals the starter solenoid to engage the starter.

plenty of things could be a starter, alternator, ignition switch, bad spark...

User Avatar

Have you checked the ignition switch on the column . I had to replace the one in my 1977 Trans Am.

User Avatar

Could be your battery, starter, ignition, check them... would start with the battery !

User Avatar

This would be located right behind the ignition. If you need this replaced, it is best to go to a mechanic.

User Avatar

bad battery. bad ignition switch bad solenoid or the new starter is faulty,has been known to happen

User Avatar

Well if everything but the starter engages when you turn the key the starter is bad, if not then your ignition switch may be bad. Starter would be my first choice in any case.

ignition tumblers are worn out. replace ignition switch. Having disconnected the positive battery cable to shut the starter off,I replaced the starter relay fuse. Reconnected the battery, but it would not turn over now although I could hear the starter click. I decided to replace the starter. As soon as I dropped it down off the block and turned it to remove the electrical lines there was a old rusty bolt lodged between the two terminals. A new starter and that,s that.
