I recently installed a new alpine deck in my jeep. And now I can drive a little ways but then the IOD fuse under the that controls the gauges, radio, and interior lights will blow. I know for fact that all of my connections are soldered and taped well. I realize I should check all my connections just to be sure, but what else could be causing this to blow, because I can drive a little ways after replacing it before it blows. I'm lost, what should I check?

It sounds like that Alpine (or something connected to it) is overloading that circuit. That is the B+ wire that goes to the radio connector. I'm not sure how the Alpine connects to the OEM wiring but you may need to add a separately fused B+ wire to the circuit. That way you can run a heavier wire & more than the 10a fuse you have with the IOD.

Okay I'll look into that thanks!
