I have a 2005 LR3 V8 petrol Land Rover. I have had recently my spark plugs replaced, a new starter, a new alternator and a new battery put in my vehicle. I go to a garage that specialises in Land Rover repair but none of us can seem to solve this problem. The F6-15A fuse keeps blowing. They then replaced the ignition coil capacitor and the passenger side camshaft position sensor. Car runs well for a while then car gets hard to start then once started drives for a while and then a few miles later the same fuse blows again. We replace the fuse and then a day or so later same thing happens. They even checked the ignition coils but found nothing wrong. It seems that the engine having a hard time to start precedes the fuse blowing. Right now I carry a set of these fuses around as soon as one blows I replace it when a new one. I just can't keep doing this due to the fact that when the fuse blows my car dies instantly. Do any of you have any idea what is going on?

Might be a short within the fusebox or chaffed wiring between the fusebox and capacitor with a resistive short to ground

Solved Fuse 6 15 Amp fuse always blowing

I took my car to Treasure Valley British Automotive in Boise, ID, USA where they spent an exhaustive couple of weeks trying to figure out why the F6 15 amp fuse kept on blowing. After numerous part replacements and then driving my car extensively the fuse still kept on blowing every other day. They eventually checked all the vehicle grounds related to the ignition coils. They found that one of the ground studs underneath the passenger side front fender liner fell off while attempting to loosen. They repaired the ground. They also noted that the main body ground cable was partially melted. They replaced the main ground cable and test drove the vehicle and all seemed well. They also checked all the other grounds and cleaned them up. I then took a risk and drove my car in the mountains over the weekend and she ran beautifully with no issues. So they were eventually were able to solve the problem. So it came down to the main ground cable shorting intermittently when my car got hot. :smile

After numerous attempts to try find the fault it came down to the grounding wire under the front left fender. We replaced this wire and problem seems to be resolved.

For anyone having the same issue. 08 Range Rover sport. The bracket that holds the harness right behind the battery will cut the harness. My was getting the coil wire and blowing f6.
