    Hello Fellas. 1985 buick Regal Limited with 3.8 V6

    I have a question the 20a fuse In the fuse Block labeled Instrument keeps blowing the fuse which causes the Fuel Gauge not to work...

    1. The Fuse does not blow right away.
    2. I can start the car and Replace the Fuse and everything works as it should. But as soon as i drive the car around the block open Fuse Panel and Look the 20a its blown again, but if I take out and just let car Idol the fuse will not blow.

    Could there be a short in the sending unit that would cause this?
