Blown 20A fuse blown on fuel pump/relay

(2001 Chrysler Sebring)
in Arlington, WA on January 09, 2009
I came to start my Sebring and the starter wouldn't engage. Not all dash lights came on and the blinkers didn't work. I found a 20A blown fuse in the fuse box under the hood. The fuse was tied to the fuel pump/relay. I change the fuse and the car started. A week later the same fuse blew again. Could this be a fuel pump going out?

Your problem may be the fuel pump. With the proper wiring diagram you will need to confirm that the fuse blowing powers the fuel pump, not just the relay. That fuse may also power other components - the wiring diagram should show everything powered by the fuse in question. Confirming the fault for a fuse that blows intermittently can be very difficult. If that fuse does power the fuel pump you may need to replace the pump and see what happens.
