My Deere Gator XUV 825i continues to blow the 15 amp key

Customer Question

My John Deere Gator XUV 825i continues to blow the 15 amp key switch fuse. Install new fuse and try to run and fuse will blow again. Let gator cool or try to crank a few hrs later and it will run for 1 to 2 hrs before blowing the 15 amp fuse again. I would think it must be a bare wire or direct short in electrical circuit. Should I change out the ingnition key unit?

With the fuel injected engine, I suspect the fuel pump. Can you test fuel pump when it blows fuse and will not start. I would check the voltage to the fuel pump harness. And try jumper on the fuel pump , to see if the pump will run, or sticks.

# 23 in the fuel tank.
