My 15 amp fuse for the radio is loose and it works sometimes and other times it doesn't. Sometimes when I start my TB my radio/deck doesn't come on and if I wiggle the fuse and kind of tape it to one side the radio will work again. What is my best option (hopefully the least expensive also) for fixing this problem?? :sadcry:

You could try putting a small bend in the blades of the fuse. I don't know if it's possible to tighten the clamps in the fuse box.

I know its not the best fix but what about folding a thin piece of copper foil over the blades-enough to make it a tight fit?

I have done it with other gm vehicles. But, not an easy job. The fuse box has to be taken apart and the blades removed. I do not recommend unless you have a lot of experience.
What he said. A loose fuseholder often is a burnt fuseholder. Could that circuit have been previously overloded? Jury rigged fuseholders are a no no. Be careful:nono:
