I have a 95 GWSE that has been triked. The other day the 30 amp fuse blew and has blown three more times now, none of them directly, only after a few minutes of running. With the seat off so I could see better, I replaced the fuse (after checking all the wires I could), cranked the engine and let it idle for about 15 minutes, all the while jumping on the sideboards so I could replicate movement down the road...no fuse blown but after riding down the road with a smile thinking perhaps I had fixed the problem without even knowing it, the fuse blew again. No correlation between anything!! I am ready to put a rag in the gas tank. Any suggestions?

No rags allowed in the tank today. I’m not to sure about tomorrow either. Haaaa

Electrical problems can be tough to find. Also very frustrating! Hope you find your problem. Might want to blow out the back of the fuse block, just a thought. Hoping the best for you.

So you say the 30 amp fuse blew.

Is this the dogbone fuse??? Or did someone change that to a blade type fuse???? Also you said you checked the wires as best you could. Did this include disconnecting, cleaning, and retightening wires???

If you still have the dogbone, you may want to consider changing that to the blade type. Additionally loose wires and poor connections will create heat which in turn create a fuse blowing situation.

One final item of note. Are there added lights or accessories (either by you or others) that have added to the load on the fuse???
