2004 ION-3 Quad Coupe
Default 2004 Saturn Ion 3 blowing ignition fuse

I have a 2004 ion 3 and it keeps blowing the 10 amp ignition fuse under the hood. I replaced the ignition switch and no help. The engine will crank. Basically every time I turn the key to the run position the fuse immediately blows. Any thoughts on what my be wrong would be greatly appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

That fuse provides power to the ignition module and the park/neutral safety switch if the car has an automatic transmission (or CVT).

I would unplug the ignition module and see if it happens again. I suspect something in the ignition module is shorting out when you turn the key on. If the fuse doesn't blow while the ignition module is unplugged, the ignition module may be bad. It is also possible that a break in the wire between the fuse block and the ignition module is causing a short so it wouldn't hurt to look for broken wires.
