Question: How to fix my car?

My cars fp/asd fuse blows very time I turn on the key. It will not turn over with the key and if I jump across the positive to the starter relay it will turn over but will not start.

If the fuel pump/auto shut down relay fuse is blowing, you have a direct short in that circuit. And the car won't start without it working correctly. You might want to have a shop look at it unless you are good with electrical diagnosis as it may take a bit of work to find the short.

What you can do (that's very easy and quick) is to replace the asd and fp relays. Sometimes they short internally. And then reinstall the fuse. If it doesn't blow, you may be able to start your vehicle again. If it does, then the problem is a bit more complex.
