    Got a 200sx sdirteen she ran a couple of times ect changed the oil ect and now every time I try to crank it the 30a ignition switch fuse blows immediately. Can't see any issues with the loom or anything seriously ropey fuel pump doesn't even cycle but can hear the eccs/starter clicking ready to crank (ca18det auto BTW) any ideas I'm about.ready to set fire to the bugger also has an immobiliser

    Disconnect starter solenoid wire and crank, if the fuse stays good, you know its the starter :-) good luck!

    Had a look it all looks OK although I can't see the command wire just two hefty buggers going from loom to starter from starter to block? Checked all eccs systems traced earth's from fuel pump to fuse box looks OK still.blowing the fuse though any one who is good with s13 come.get her started will pay for the time and a amazing Maccies cheers

    S13 wiring diagrams This might help also you could unplug all the plugs on the inner wing under the battery, see if it blows and see if it is the engine side or the body side of the loom, if its the body side could be damage to the wiring that runs through drivers wing.

    All fixed and running like a dream was a short illness spotted and overlooked as the wire that was frayed was tiny like a mouses helmet. That combined with a dodgy ignition switch but all good now cheers guys
