CKA I had the same problem, I had 2 buy a bunch of fuses from Napa, they were the only one's who had them here, but the problem dissappeared, it was weird.

dudemanzx3 Did you unhook your system and try to start it then? If you did and the fuse still blows, I would take out the whole system before I took it in to the dealer. They'll do almost anything to try and blame you for the gripe so they don't lose $.

downloader take it back to the guy who installed your sound system

Epox Well i tore everything apart its nothing to do with my stereo (stock HU wired to an amp) The fuse that keeps blowing is #41 it has something to do with the cluster when the car first starts cus it takes about 60 sec for the gauges to read anything. when i first blew the fuse i replaced it and it workest for about 2 min before it went again, but now it goes every time i turn the key. what im woried about is if i take it to the dealership they will say that the instalation of the amp voided my warenty.

S2 Do you have an aftermarket stereo? Chances are that you are shorting out somewhere causing the fuse to blow. Check the wiring or the HU and the remote wire for the amps, etc. Maybe the rubber around the wire had gotten worn off at a sharp angle where the wire is run. Something to check anyway..... I used to be hardcore into stereos and I had so many fuses blow when I started out it was insane.

Anyway, check it out..... you might also want to ask SA_PYRO_NE who is the moderator for the car stereo 'ICE' section of this board and see if he has any ideas.....

I doubt it has anything to do with your gauge cluster, your car is a 2004. If it's not any of your stereo wires, then take it to the dealership, you have warranty, use it.

For some reason the 7.5 amp fuse that controls the gauge cluster and the remote turn on wire for the radio and amps blows when i turn my key to start my engine. I dont think that it is my stereo b/c ive had it in there sence the 2nd day ive had my car ive had it for 2 months now and it just started doing this today Please help
