Becouse blow the 30A ign fuse
Expert:  Randall C replied 6 months ago.

98% you have a bad starter, 2% possible starter relay, No way for me to say which, relay is easiest to try,, if still blows? the Ign 30 fuse send power to the starter relay then to the starter, It is most likley you have a shorted starter motor, Here are 2 links, one for relay location one for starter

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
What test i can do for make sure it starter ?
Expert:  Randall C replied 6 months ago.

change the relay, if fuse still blows, starter is bad

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I unplug the starter still blowing fuse
Expert:  Randall C replied 6 months ago.

unplugged what? what wire?

Expert:  Randall C replied 6 months ago.

all I can add? the fuse powers to ignition switch, then to starter relay then to starter, if relay out and fuse still blows? then you could? have bad ignition switch, rare but possible, if fuse blows with purple wire off starter and relay IN? then a wiring short from relay to starter on purple wire, Never s een that but possible, This all is ONLY if fuse blows in CRANK and not RUN position which you said yes

here is wiring diagram

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
12 volts and signal wire
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Becouse i put new relay and still blowing
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
After that i umplug s tarters wires still blowing
Expert:  Randall C replied 6 months ago.

I sent the reply to this as other possible. You said ONLy blows in Crank so, with new relay, starter unplugged and still blows,. you could have a shorted purple wire from relay to starter OR possible ignition switch, I am not there so can only list possibles and i attached a wiring diagram. Does it blow with relay removed? you have not supplied that info

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I remove the relay and the fuse dont blow
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Expert:  Randall C replied 6 months ago.

then short between relay and starter so, if you need to get running till looked at on the purple wire from relay to starter, turn key on with relay OUT, jump 12 volts to the terminal you unplugged at the starter, engine should crank and run

Customer: replied 6 months ago.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
