Fuse to alternator keeps blowing
I have had battery and alternator checked twice and they are ok. The fuse to the
alternator keeps blowing, sometimes as soon as I try to put a new one in. Any ideas on
what is causing this. Of course, once it blows my battery amps go down.
Check for a bare wire going to ground. Also has any of the battery terminals been changed. If so double check that all the wires are hooked to the proper battery terminal.
There's a large plug on the alternator with (usually) 3 wires on it. Replace that. They're notorious for failure. You can buy that pigtail, as it's called, from your local auto parts store. HTH. -Jim
