Replacement 5amp fuse
« on: August 03, 2015, 03:52:52 PM »
I had a successful test.  The fuse blew that is.  Before I get too far along I need to purchase some extras. Where is the best place to get them?

Thanks

Are you planning to blow a lot of fuses? I know David buys them in bulk because he assembles boards.
Walmart sounds like a better option.

Nope.  Been doing this for eight years and this is my first controller fuse.  For $6.27 to my door I'm not going to spend the frustration of driving to Walmart.  And yes I will probably have some to share. ;D

Replacement 5amp fuse

I have a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder, Just got it.  The 10a audio amp fuse kept blowing.  I pulled the 2 amps in the back passenger side. I put a new fuse in it did not blow.  I plugged the amps back in.  It did not blow but also not work.  I touched them to body to ground, I got sound rear speakers only. I reinstalled the front ampby frnt I mean closer to the frunt but still in the rear of the car, fuse blew. I took it out and unplugged it. I tried it with the back amp out but grounded, sound.  I reinstalled the back amp. Fuse blew.  I took out the rear and tried again with it grounded but not mounted.  Music.  I ran a ground wire to the amp and just stuck it in the rear well.  It works.  Why are the fuses blowing when the amps are intstalled which really is just mounted. But not when they arent?????

Thanks,
JB
