Accessories fuse keeps blowing?

97 3.8l auto. My car has been running bad for the past couple of weeks its been sputtering and hesitating on acceleration. Just recently I found that the accessories fuse keeps blowing everytime this happens....any chance the obd2 port has a bad ground somewhere and keeps blowing fuses causing my driving issues?

Re: Accessories fuse keeps blowing?

You might try replacing the fuse with a test lamp. If you have a short the lamp will burn very bright. You can then wiggle and disconnect wiring until the light goes out. That'll help you narrow it down without feeding it fuses.

Well......it turns out some little piece of metal was stuck in the outlet and cuasing the fuse to blow.....ever since I solved that problem it appears my cars hesitation and sputtering has stopped (knock on wood) dont see how the two are related but no complaints here!!!!
