My truck only has 16000kms on it and the starter relay fuse under the hood is blowing quite frequently. It seems to be getting worse and blowing them quicker. Changed the relay and that didn't help. Leaving on holidays on Thursday and wanna get it figured out. TIA!!!

what amp fuse ? what type fuse ?

the starter uses an onboard the solenoid to connect to the larger battery cable

a bad solenoid could cause the issue or a loose wire and an intermittent short to ground

when you replace the fuse do you get a few starts before it blows ?

solenoid and area where wires can come loose
