    I am experiencing a blown ignition fuse after the engine is started . S2000 Honda can it be caused by a bad connection somewhere or is it due to a safety feature built in to prevent damage to the electronic computer .Please help

    which fuse? the 50A fuse?

    fuses are there to protect the circuit. it blows when it exceeds its maximum current (amps), severing the power flow into that circuit.

    think back to when all was good (no fuse blown issues) then guestimate when you started blowing fuses......during the time in between..., try to remember ANYthing that was done to the car.. did anybody else drive it, was a stereo installed, anything you can remember... even using the cigarette lighter plug... post them all... and you most likely will solve your own problem.....

    Almost always due to aftermarket components installed.
    Or a chafed exposed wire grounding/shorting. Specifically as you stated after the engine is started and "vibration is present."
