I've had a similar problem: cut out unexpectedly, starter still cranked, but engine would not fire. All mechanical parts looked ok.
Solution: Turns out the ECU (engine control unit) had shorted out internally, a large capacitor on the ecu board crapped out. ECUs are complex and can't really be line tested, but mine had a obvious burn mark visible once disassembled. Take out the ECU, first remove driver-side kick panel w/ 10mm socket & philips screwdriver. Detach hood lift cable and panel rheostadt. Look underneath for a brass box about 10cm x 10 cm x 3cm. Each model is wired differently, mine had 3 large plugs for wiring. Take it out and open the case. If you see any burnt components, replace the ECU and see if it works. (of course, check each fuse in the kick panel and main fusebox under the hood before you buy a new ECU as they cost about 200$)

There is no such thing as a main battery fuse.
seems like a wire has come undone under the dash and shorted your car out.

My 06 Audi a4 had a blown 20amp fuse for the radio. There was a lot of feedback noise coming through the speakers even with the radio off. I've replaced the fuse, so now the background noise is gone, but...


Check that power is actually getting to the radio. A cheap multimeter will do the trick. Connect the red tester to the power supply and the black to any earth (-ve). The body of the car is earthed so any bolt into the body will do.

Check that the radio doesn't have its own inline fuse which could also have blown.

It takes quite a substantial fault to blow a 20 amp fuse so take care, there may well be a dead short somewhere.

2005 Chrysler Town and Country Touring died when put in reverse. Battery is strong. Will not Start. Ignition Fuse blew. Any Ideas?


It looks like you have a short somewhere. You would need to inspect all the wiring related to that in order to pin point the problem. Also check if there is another system working from that same fuse. ie. Power Outlets. Sometimes if they go bad it will blow the fuses shutting down everything else.
I hope this helps!

Double check the battery positive connection wiring carefully as it commonly has connection problems when the battery is changed.

Electrical Short???


Has the stereo been changed recently? If not move to the cigerett lighter. These two are most likely the prob. But you could have a bare wire anywhere grounding out. Good luck and hope you find it.

Fuse is blowing on instrument panel


When a fuse blows something is grounding out in the system you need to find where it is grounding out and replace the wires that are bad, as well as whatever the bad wires messed up. eg.. guages. etc.. I hope this helps you out.
