    inline fuse blows as soon as I connect to battery?

    Hi there,
    had my amp and subs in my astravan,
    swapped the whole system over to my new astra and whenever I reconnect it the fuse instantly blows, without the stereo even being switched on?
    the fuse is a 30A fuse if that helps,
    very confused please help!
    many thanks

    Unplug the battery live to the amp and isolate it then put a fuse in to see if it blows. If it does then you have caught the power wire somewhere, if it doesn;t then you may have a faulty amp

    Just don't plugin any thing you want to keep! Fusees blowing tell you theres something wrong. As Autosparks Says go back and look at all you're wiring. If you have a test light; there cheep if you don't get one if you plain on doing any thing else with electricity they save soo much time; see if you can isolate the part that is shoring it's probably going through the firewall, it's not unlikely you damage the insulation on the way through.

    Also on a side note the amp not even being on suggests it before the amp ie on the way through the firewall.
