F360 ignition system fuze

I recently had a new sound system installed and after driving it for 1 hour I went home and parked later when I went to start it the fuze going to the ignition system blew and continues to blow every time I replace it and try to start the car. I had the new stereo dis-connected but the fuze is still blowing. Anyone know what could be causing this?

Welcome to Ferrari Life. Sounds like whoever installed the stereo shorted some wires down there somewhere. You are going to need a good Ferrari technician with a VOM meter to find the short. That is the kind of thing that leads to fires, so I would have someone qualified fix it immediately. Always bad to let amateurs fiddle with wiring. No telling what kind of Rube Goldberg arrangement they will try.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

That's an easy one, the guy who connected the radio took the accessory wire from the ignition to power up the radio. He must of messed something up in there like spliced another wire too or pulled on something as you need to pull a little on wires sometimes. I would go back to the shop and ask them to check it and fix it. DIsconnecting the radio will not do it alone because the wire he spliced into is still spliced....


If they say no, say no problem, I will have Ferrari come pick up my car, they can get quite expensive...I will call my lawyer and have him send you the bill including his.

Could be an honest mistake. My radio was not working when I bought my car. It was plugged directly to the battery. I found an accessory wire under the driver console. But to be honest.....a man should install his own stereo, it's so easy it's stupid but if he doesn't want to venture into it he should get a friend who can and watch because there are too many butchers out there.
