Short - Blowing fuses.

Keep blowing the 3 amp fuse marked ign-lps. Something to do with the gauges? I unhooked the fuel and temp sending units and the fuse still blew. I am positive that the wires are hooked up properly. I checked them with the manual. Are the gauges bad? Any help would be appreciated. 1985 CJ7. Thanks Ralph P

Re: Short - Blowing fuses.

does the manual say what is hooked up to that fuse besides those two gauges. you have a short somewhere.

I think that may be tied into all your acc lamps; temp,wipers,lights,defroster,fan,oil,volt, and instrument cluster.

Re: Short - Blowing fuses.

actualy, you just made me think ,ignore that last reply thats for acc/lps . but that is the one that is supposed to have a 3 amp fuse. ign/lps is supposed to be a 15 amp fuse. might want to double check which fuse your looking at.

Re: Short - Blowing fuses.

Just had a gauge not working problem:

The ign/lps fuze has: 1) Defogger relay. 2) defogger switch. 3) gauges. 4) tachometer. 5) emission maintenance timer. 6) indicator lamps. and, 7) electronic engine controls; charging system.

All these are tied to the Ign/Lps breaker, and that circuit is tied to the ignition switch module.

In my case it was a loose gauge plug wire that shoted against the dash body and blew the Ign/Lps fuse.

Re: Short - Blowing fuses.

Sorry I did not get right back to you. Do you still need to know where that breaker is?

Probably OBE by now, but; it is a 15A fuse in your fuse panel. On my 87, thats under the drivers side dash against the firewall.
