Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the ASD fuse is blowing it's because of high current draw on the circuit. It could be blowing due to excessive dwell which is being aggravated or it could be blowing because of a short to ground in the harness. Its likely that the harness is moving enough under acceleration that a damaged spot n the ASD wire is shorting to ground.

Do you have the VIN?

I just tried it today again it just blows the fuse soon as I open the ignition on.
Has anyone had the same situation before?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

You have a 1996 Cirrus with a 2.4.

If the fuse is blowing without the engine even running then you definitely have a short to ground in the harness. The most common place for issues was at the back of the engine block area.

But what component or wire?
Because I wiggled around underneath the fuse block and the car would turn off while running then I would wiggle it around more and it would start up. You could hear the transmission module getting power. Could it be somewhere there?

The ASD circuit. It's the dark green/orange wire that powers the injectors, coil, and oxygen sensor heaters.
