Sierra Blowing Ign Fuses
As per the title. 1994 Sierra - been my daily drive for over 5 years with no issues. Yesterday died at the lights. Fire went out but everything else still worked. Tracked it to a blown Ign fuse. Replaced it and went off again.
On the way home (exactly the same spot) it blew again. and again. and again.
Four fuses and 700 metres later I got to a Super-Cheap and bought more fuses.
Got home, cleaned up the wiring (water and oil spattered) and swapped the 15 amp for a 25 amp.
Since then no problem.
Any ideas (apart from a short which I spent all last night looking for) as to the possible culprit?
My thinking is that if it blew a 15 but not a 25 then it's probably not a short. Coil perhaps?
