If it blows as soon as you put the fuse in you have a short somewhere in the system before the switch and you need to trace it out, if it blows as soon as you press the switch then it can be the wiring from the switch to the motor, or the motor is bad. Try disconnecting the motor, if it does not blow, then it is probably a bad motor.

could be a lot of things ( shorts are pretty hard to diagnose)

I would take everything apart and look for loose wires. It could be you have a frayed wire/open wire that is shorting out ( try wrapping any exposed wires in elecctical tape)

I had a similar issue with the fuses blowing but with the motor on my power mirrors... seems the motor was bad and was stressed everytime it moved so drew more amps than it should .. pop went the fuse

Thats not bad.

I had a 'short' somewhat that wasnt blowing fuses, but caused tons of problems.
Replaced the ECU, both multiplexors, fuseboxes, a few relays, and other misc... $1300 and out the door in just under a month. They never told me what was wrong... Since they didnt know. These guys arent usually very intelligent. And this was at a Honda Dealer.

Was the problem resolved?

$380 is pretty good for electronic diagnostic and fix .. well assuming they fixed it

after i did lot of reseach online and tried to figure out the problems, i was going to replace that multiplexer but didn't want to. so i decided to bring it to this shop and assumed that they have more knowledges about electric than i do to find out where the shorts are, but turn out not what i thought.
yes the problem fixed, but they messed up my factory alarm sec sytem and they didn't know how to reset it so i had to reset it myself by researched online haha.;

Yea, I wanted to fix my car myself but I was busy with school and my dad forced me to take it to the dealer after it sat for 2-3 days...

I basically told them what to do, since they had no clue. They replaced parts that didnt need replacing and charged me for them of course...

And my running lights went out in the process and they never address that issue, I had to myself.


Electrical issues arent allways a easy thing to fix... Most 'mechanics' want to see a tire fall off, then they know what to do to fix it. Electrical isnt always as clear....
