Why does my Dodge Neon's starter keep blowing fuses?

Asked by May 27, 2016 at 05:06 PM about the 2005 Dodge Neon 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Dodge Neon.  One day it wouldn't start.  It blew a 30 amp starter fuse.  I had the starter and fuse replaced.  Started fine for a month, then the fuse blew again.  Could not find any exposed wiring or cause for  a short, but replaced the fuse anyway.  After 3 fuses, the car started.  Again, went well for a month, blew a fuse again.  What else should I do?

Have a voltage drop test performed on the starter circuit. HIGH Resistance will be found. wires can be bad UNDER the insulation. Regards
