HELP! BLowing 50AMP Slo-Blow fuse in '98 Forester
My brother-in-law gave us his '98, 200K mile Forester as a first car for my daughter. I drove it about 250 miles from NJ to VA - and the next day, the electrical system was dead.
I did some poking, and found that one of the 50 amp slo-blow fuses in the fusebox under the hood was bad. I put a new fuse in, and the alarm started going off, and the fuse promptly blew again.
Any ideas about where to start troubleshooting this thing?
Thanks a bunch -
