I have a 2018 Toyota 4runner with 30k miles, and in the last month its blown 2 starter fuses. These fuses are described as "low profile female maxi fuses", basically the square block style fuses with the clear plastic window on top. They both blew while driving, after the vehicle had been started and ran for 5-10 mins. I took what I could apart to clean and inspect. No signs of rodents, everything is fairly clean and is garaged every night. Its bone stock with the exception of LED headlight and fog lights. About a year ago it went into the dealership for a fuel pump recall, other than that the vehicle hasn't been touched. Could this possibly be a bad starter? Anyone have any ideas? TIA!!
