if a fuse blows immediately there is a short circuit, what's your skill level and do you know how to read and follow a wiring diagram?

Not at all expert level. I could probably follow a wiring diagram.
Chrysler Mechanic: bill, chrysler master tech replied 2 years ago

ok I need the vin to get the location and any available wiring diagrams, BUT you will need a good test lamp and a digital volt ohm meter to do any testing, and the ability to use them properly

thanks, ***** ***** 2 possible locations, the location will depend on the BRAND of amp,the options list on your car DOES NOT say which, the first place is behind the left rear seat in the jack and lug wrench compartment

the other place is under the rear floor stowage/storage tray is located (your options say you have the 200 amp sound system so I would bet the amp in under the stowage compartment.

here is a link to the procedure to remove the amp.

I would unplug the amp and replace the fuse if it NO LONGER blows you need a new amp OR find a local radio repair shop and see if they can service your amp.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
