Hello,

I was driving down the road and stopped at a stop sign and when I stepped on the gas to go again, my car shut down. I won't start again except for once and the # 10 fuse keeps blowing. Can you please give me an idea of what to look at?

Hello

Thanks for the donation.

Are you sure it is hte #10 fuse or the #9 fuse? The #10 fuse leads to the rear defrost and would have nothing to do with the vehicle starting. Fuse #9, however, leads to the ignition switch/starter circuit which would cause the vehicle to stop and fail to start. Is the fuse 40Amp or 30Amp? If it is the ign. Switch fuse then suspect faulty switch. Let me know the Amps of the fuse and I will follow up.

The fuse cover (next to steering wheel) reads #10. It is a 15amp fuse and lists: LDP ABS, PTU SOL, ENG RLYS, ENG MOD.

Sorry about that, I was under the hood there. Okay, below is a diagram of what this fuse is connected to..

Since the fuse is blowing, this indicates one of two things. Either there is a short in the wiring OR one of the related components is faulty. So the first thing you will need to do is visually inspect the wires for any damage. Since the only component that will stop your vehicle from running or starting that is connected to this fuse is the powertrain control module, I would suspect a faulty PCM.. but it may just be the wiring so be sure to inspect it very well.
