aem pulley causing fuses to blow?
Hey guys,
I installed my AEM pulley about a month ago and I also have a decent sized stereo system. I've had a couple of fuses blow since then and I'm not sure if it's related to the pulley. Everything's working good right now except for my windshield washer. I don't hear the humming from the motor, the fuse is not blown, I don't have a strut bar and I just refilled the fluid yesterday but it's still not working. Could this stuff be caused by my pulley changing the load on the electrical system? Thanks.

are your plastics squeezing the washer fluid line because of incorrect seating?

your battery might be sending variable current... plug a voltmeter to your car's electrical system and see what it does as you rev your engine and such

you said you have a decent sound system... what does that mean? a few 12JL3 with 500+ watt AMP... or even an AMP that isn't powerful enough to run your subs... what about a cap?

what else do you have on your GTS? Any additional lighting - neons and such...

it might just be time for a replacement battery. STOCK is meant for STOCK setup... if you have aftermarket electrical stuff, you should also have aftermarket battery that can handle such things thumbsup

Does the AEM Pulley have any effect on how loud and how clear your stereo system will sound?

The blue tops are marine/rv replacements... red top is good for replacement starter and yellow top for audio upgrades... If you don't like the yellow color, just have it painted to color-match whatever you wish
