My SRT is so gay. I'm so pissed off at it right now. It really is a big pile of shit. You can see the thread I started in "SRT dealer service" forum 2 days ago, about how when I was going down the road at about 50 mph, the car just turned off and wouldn't start again. It was towed to the dealer and it turned out to be a blown fuse, and they replaced it for free, but they almost voided my warrenty in the process for my hurst shift knob.

Anyways, tonight the same damn thing happened, just 2 days and 200 miles after. So we replaced the blown fuse in it 3 times, but everytime we put it in, the fuse blew as soon as we turned the key. We finally ran out of spare fuses, so now its just sitting in the Advance Auto Parts parking lot, until I can either get some better fuses or can take it back to the dealer. It's such a piece junk!

Why would it do this? It's a brand new car with 6,300 miles on it!

The only thing that is done to it is the Mopar BOV, and my friend took the front crash bumper and foam out of it.

What the hell would cause this? This really is pissing me off!

It doesn't matter about the warrenty so get over it. We just want to know what is blowing the fuses, and the dealer saw the car without the crash bumper and they didn't care.

definitely a ground, there's a wire on the front bumper section i think that provides ground... probably when you were removing that foam piece you forgot to put it back or maybe its not at a good ground location? im not sure... and dont be a dick we are trying to help you...

I'm the one that took the bumper pff, and the one who replied that time. All i'm sayin is im tired of hearing what ius going to void your warrenty, the dealer didn't even see it. And what about the guys with the big fmic, why don't they have this problem?

Why would your friend take the crash bar out when you don't have a huge FMIC yet? Doesn't make sense and they will void your warrenty for that if they see it.
Unless they can prove that the lack of a crash bar causes his SRT-4 to shut down (blue FMIC of death!), you can make any changes you want to the car. It's the law man. Learn to read. Unless of course, everyone else who's removed their crash bar on here has simular problems and just won't tell us about them.

I had simular fuse issues with the daytime running lights on my Canadian SRT-4. Have them look at all the grounds and make sure that any of the wire bunches going under the air box aren't worn down - that was the source of my problem.

Electrical wiring is a bitch in new cars. Send the tech a few beers for his trouble - it might be a while before he finds the problem.

well it wasnt doing it before you took the bumper protection off was it? hmmm there must be something around there thats used as a ground... my suggestion would be anything youve done to the car go and look at it again

maybe u crimped a wire to the headlight, foglight, or something. Ray @ IPP had a similar problem and it turned out to be a foglight wire was crimped after replacing the front bumper.

Which fuse keeps blowing??

Like what others have said, it's definitely an electrical issue. Maybe it was caused by you or your friend... or maybe it's a manufacturing defect... Here's something easy to check... It's most likely not the source of the problem. but it's easy to check...

Make sure not to give him the beers until after he gets off that day though.

Wires behind the clutch are fine. The fuse that keeps blowing out is the passanger airbag fuse I think, so I guess the car won't start without that fuse working. It's a 20 amp fuse, and we even put in a 30 amp and it blew that instantly too. It blows as soon as you turn the key to start the car. Would it make a difference if we disconnected the battery and then put the fuse in?

Your best bet might be to just get it towed to the dealer.. One thing you want to be careful of is putting in higher and higher amp fuses... The fuse is blowing for a reason, if you keep putting higher and higher amp fuses in, the wires are gonna melt etc.. Be carefuk
