Default My fuse keeps blowing...???

Hey all,

OK so this has happened to me three times in the past two days... the first time I went to quiznos fine but when i came out the fuse was blown. went to buy more, replaced it, everything was great. tonight when I took my scooter out (brand new tank urban classic 50) the fuse was blown before i even turned it on. So i replaced it, the alarm started to go off, so i knew it was working. I stopped the alarm, and went back insde to put the tools away. When I came back, the fuse i had JUST replaced was blown.

Anyone know any possible reasons why this might be happening??

sometime the control switches can short on the handle bars
causing the fuse to blow...
also you might check that the voltage regulator is well connected at the modular
plug. if the wires are not connected you can blow fuse's....

ah ok thanks. my bf actually mentioned that the alarm on the scoot might have something to do with it? i swear it has a mind of its own, and since after the second time i changed the fuse and the alarm went off for a couple secs and then turned the alarm off and came back tot he scooter and the fuse was blown again i dunno if that has something to do with it too... but i'll def check to see if the voltage regulator is connected to the modular plug...

speaking of... how do i check that?? sry to be such a n00b...

if i can help it i try not to work on tanks..lol , but the voltage regulator
is a square box usually with some metal fins on it
it will be screwed on the frame it may be somewhere around the engine
compartment or under the front pannel.

if the short is in the light switch or other handlebar control put eletrical
tape on the H.bar under the control switchs

mostly the alarms just drain the battery waiting for the alarm or remote
switch to operate...or perhaps you can't turn off the scoot with
the key and must use the kill switch, those are most of the
remote control problems i see..

I've notice what you mean about the alarm...

however, I haven't had the fuse problem I would check all the wires you can...

until then I would just use the key put it to on and kickstart it'll run without a battery... you just wont have the alarm.

I've been researching how to reduce the alarms sensitivity, but haven't found out yet..

I'm really new at this whole scooter thing myself...

Just bought a used TGB 303 RS, and having a hard time getting the carb to run right..

but it's alot of fun

I'll keep you posted.

Found out to set the sensitivity of the alarm

press and hold arm... chirps once... keep holding chirps 3, 2, 1.

1 is the least sensitive, then click disarm to set the sensitivity.

What happens if you install a fuse with the wrong amp rating? If you install a 20 amp fuse in a circuit designed for 10 amps, you're asking for trouble. A difference of 10 amps might not sound like much, but it may be enough to fry a sensitive electronic component or to overheat wires to the point where the insulation may start to melt.
