Howdy!

Just wanted to get some advice before I get started on this sucker.

My wife's suburban blows the starting circuit fuse (the big 40 amp maxi-fuse under the hood) whenever you turn the key to the start position. Everything is fine until you turn it to start the motor.

I'm gonna have to get on it tomorrow and I wanted to see if any of you fellas had any good pointers as to what may be the most likely problem. I figure a wire has grounded somewhere, but when I got under it and looking around under the hood, I didn't see any readily apparent cause. Could the starter be grounding out internally?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

it could be internally grounded? but i would deff. check very good around the exaust pipes to see if a wire might have melted against it. if you have ever had a transmission put in it check around the bell housing for any trapped wires? i have seen a pinched wire take more than 10 months to go bad completely
