Blown fuses

I asked this question in the elec. forum but wanted a more focus answer if any answer. My 94 GM has an electrical bug. #4 fries any fuse (went through three). I didnt do any readings with my multi-meter yet (too dark). What wire leads to the i/p fuse box in the kick panel (if that is the problem)? I look at the wiring diagrams and I understand the basics but not how to fix my problems. Any suggestions?

Re: Blown fuses

What does that fuse take care of? Sorry if you explained it already, your question kind of confused me.

Re: Blown fuses

Have you got an aftermarket radio? Have you changed anything electrical lately?If so check that first. Then look for a pinched wire in one of the systems that it feeds or a nick in it . The problem is most likely a dead short in one of these. Also if none of these checks out, look at the back of the fuse block, and check for any loose or frayed wires in it.

Re: Blown fuses

Everything is stock. But I will check the connections behind the box. I got some advice to disconnect each component that is supported by the fuse and see which causes the short. Does that sound like a good idea?

Re: Blown fuses

Sounds good. Has this always happened or just recently? Also has it ever been in an accident, even a fender bender can cause a loose wire.

Re: Blown fuses

Always has been like that. I bought it in March and they did not work back then. It has been in a couple of accidents (whole other post) Niether while I was driving. But I will ask the guy who I brought it from if the features stopped working after his fender-bender

Re: Blown fuses
