Starter Relay Fuse Issues on July 4 of all days!
Hi All! Few months ago my starter relay fuse blew, so I replaced it and all was well until now. Now everytime I go to start it the fuse pops. No cranking or anything, I turn the key and all I hear is POP! Checked the relay which is fine, tore into my dash and all the wires are ok. No fraying or splits. I tried checking the starter itself and its wires but with my back it was tough enough to look under the dash let alone crawl under the truck and try to trace wires. I found the main wire running to the starter and cleaned the connections. But I'm at a loss now and probably like some of you cash is really tight now. New catalytic converter on the wifes car and new spring shackles on my truck has grun me dry. They say bad things happen in three's, well her's my third one hope it's over. Any suggestions on getting this running or is there a way to bypass it so I can start it so I don't have to tow it to a garage if i can't make the repair myself.
