Does the fuse blow when the key is turned to the run position or when turned to the start position?

If you remove the starter relay under the hood does the fuse no longer fail?

If the starter relay removed resolves the concern then check the signal wire from the fuse box to the starter motor to see if its chaffed and grounded. If its not then remove the purple wire from the starter and try another fuse and install the relay. If the circuit no longer blows the fuse then its the starter to blame.

If you're confused on what to do now or later. You have already been charged the full question value. It's now time to compensate the tech that helped you. The only way I can continue to work here and help customers is by getting rated. If you're not pleased yet or plan not to rate me. Let me know so I can help more, close the post, or opt out. Please let me know if you're pleased with my help.

Thanks Moose.

Let me give it a try, I will say this, that about a year ago I change out the starter, and I do hear the starter stick from time to time, especial on super hot days. My money is on the starter, but what will cause the starter to do that when it barley a year old (new starter)?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.

A cheap aftermarket starter, starter wiring or relay concerns, damaged flex plate. Any of those can cause a stater to stay engaged.

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out/completed.
  • It appears you were not pleased with my help.
  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
