Indeed...

FIRST... be advised: What you are describing is
likely a HARD CIRCUIT fault... (the wires) which
can easily cause temperatures sufficient to MELT
the conductors...

UNLESS YOU HAVE A FIRE-FIGHTER standing
by with an AXE... you probably want to stop
testing by putting in MORE FUSES

If you have a TRANSFORMER HARDWIRED into this
branch circuit... Now would be the time to remove it.

Then have a QUALIFIED volt-ohm meter operator
clear the continuity between the HOT & the NEUTRAL
(or ground) before you burn the whole place down.

The PRIMARY purpose of ALL CIRCUIT BREAKERS
(fuses included) are to open the CURRENT FLOW
before a FIRE or MELT-DOWN opens the conductor
in it's weakest spot.

Temperatures necessary to melt insulation & ignite
wood are very low...

STOP TESTING with fuses...!!

How long has this been happening? Did it start all of a sudden ? When you say 'fuse' do you mean cartridge fuse, cut out or RCD (sometimes called an earth trip) ?

If it is a fuse (typically 30 amp in the U.K.) it could be pretty serious and I would get the circuit checked.

SOURCE: 99 vw jettal 2.0 gas fuse

Thats the fuse for the ECU, engine control module, and is a 15amp for gas 2.0. i would locate the ECU which is under the center of the plenum in the engine compartment and disconnect the long plug. Check for green discoloration on the multipin connector. Sometimes moisture will get in there and short some of the pins together. Leave ECU unplugged and replace the fuse. If it still blows cause is between the fuse and the ECU.

SOURCE: light downstair keep tripping our fuse box

Is it really a fuse box ? or breakers ? If nothing is running on that circuit ,you probably have a short circuit , the fuse or breaker is saving you from a fire.

My 2008 suzuki grand vitara keeps blowing the fuses for the ACC outlets. both are 15AMP, but even with nothing plugged in, nothing down in the outlets and even with larger AMP fuses, they keep blowin


If you use too large a fuse, the wiring can catch on fire, and the whole car could burn up. You'll need an auto electrician to trace that problem. You can remove any bulb and unplug any device that is on the Acc(essories?) circuit; then see if a fuse will stay; start replacing items till you blow the fuse. It seems like a dead short which can surely melt wires if you keep taking chances. good luck.

My 2006 dodge ram 2500 diesel keeps blowing fuse


The Internal light is normally tied to your dash lights on a factory installed radio. Find the main p[lug on the back of the radio and unplug it then try it with a new fuse if it still blows then it is the wiring if it does not blow the fuse when the radio is unplugged, chances are the radio is bad and will have to be repaired or replaced.

FUSE KEEPS BLOWING


It sounds like the A/C compressor clutch is shorted. You will need to have the clutch and / or the complete compressor replaced.

2002 chevy 1500 keeps blowing #1 injector fuse


IF YOU HAVE CKED FOR A SHORT THEN MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE A BAD INJECTOR. YOU CAN UNPLUG ONE INJECTOR AT A TIME UNTIL IT STOPS BLOWING FUSES OR YOU CAN TAKE IT TO A REPUTABLE TECH WHO CAN HOOK IT UP TO A SCAN TOOL AND IT SHOULD SHOW THE BAD INJECTOR.

Mazda 626 ac fuse keeps blowing


Try unplugging the compressor then put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, the problem may be the clutch on the compressor.
