Hi All

For some reason my starter fuse keeps blowing when the car is hot from running, cold it starts every time.

Any ideas?

If the fuse has been upgraded to 20 amp (official Factory fix due to current surge on aging starter motors) your starter motor is faulty the solenoid is failing and drawing too much power.

Its a common fault and quite a few threads on here about it

Hi windy

Yes it is a 20amp. Do you recommend changing the starter? Will a secondhand be ok? Should I do it myself?

Yes I would change it as it will just get worse, I would go for a new/recon but you maybe able to get a good secondhand unit.

I did buy a secondhand one a few months ago as it a recon that was as new as van iit was fitted to seized it engine about two months are fitting
