JUMP-STARTING CABLE CONNECTIONS

This video is on a 2008 Chevy Equinox SUV, but may be very similar to other Chevy vehicles. On many occasions, I have heard about a problem that can
be experienced while connecting jumper cables to jump-start a vehicle. If the
negative cable is connected to a bolt on the fuse panel near the positive bolt
that IS located on the fuse panel will cause the 80 amp fuse to blow. The neg
jumper cable should ONLY be attached to a good ground somewhere on the
chassis itself. Ref. to the video.

2006 Chevy Equinox. Vehicle has lost power steering communication is what a service shop is telling me. Any ideas on this?


I have a 2008 model Equinox and my SUV has electrically assisted power steering. I had to have my truck jump started once and the garage guy hooked up the cables across the fuse that controls this steering unit. In my case this took out the 80 AMP
fuse in the motor compartment area. I had only manual hard
steering until I replaced this fuse. If you still have the SUV
with this problem, it could be just a fuse. Good luck.
