Radio short circut

Recently the radio stopped working. I discovered fuse #7 was blown. I replaced it and that fuse immediately blew too. So I replaced it again and the same thing happened. How do I fix it?

Your amp is no good. remove amp and replace. the amp is located just behind the radio between the two air ducts look down and you will see the fins of the amp.. pull the carpet away from the passenger side then remove the black cover you will see the amp.. unbolt it and replace.

Is it the correct amp fuse? If it is then it could be the radio's fault.

Why does the fuse immediately blow on my power door locks? how to fix this?


You have a short somewhere in the system. Maybe one of the lock actuators or a switch. To test disconnect all locks and switch then replace fuse if don't blow start with driver door and reconnect lock check fuse see if it blew if not reconnect switch active lock check fuse see if ok. Continue with each door separate using same steps until fuse no good you will have found short. Replace shorted part.

I blew a fuse. replaced it now car won't start


This is not good. Look for a fusable link under the hood. This is a safety device that will melt the link in case of a short. This device protects the electrical system when you do something wrong. Look for a wire that is partially melted or completely gone. That's where you will find the link. Now, the hard part is finding out what happened. Did you short something out? Better take a close look at all the work you were doing and see if you crossed any wires. Good luck.

I have a 2001 Toyota pelican and my air conditioning and power Windows just stopped working. I replaced the fuses for them and they immediately blew. Anyone know what I should do?


The blown out fuses indicate that there is a short circuit. Check and rewire your ground cable and then install fuses. If the problem still remains unsolved change the relays for both of them.

2000 Ford Taurus - Installed a new radio and used the Meta 99-5716 install kit with wiring harness. After install, radio, pwr windows, pwr locks, dome light, windshield wipers, and speedomoter have stopped...


Sounds like you have blown fuses which could have happened if you accidently short circuted something while wiring up the new stereo. Check your fuses to see if any of them are blown.

Just recently my 98 Toyota Corrolla has started blowing a fuse.


I would remove the dome light, and disconnect the wiring connector, and then put in another fuse. If it does not blow, I would think that the dome light switch is shorted to ground.

Electrical short radio 2005 ford explorer sport trac


THE RADIO MOST LIKELY IS THE PROBLEM, WITHOUT THE REPAIR MANUALS IT WOULD BE VERY HARD TO REPAIR (man. not availiable to the public), YOUR BEST BET IS TO FIND A FORD AUTHORIZED REPAIR SHOP, THEY ARE ON THE NET, THE OTHER BUY A USED UNIT ON EBAY, THE LAST IS THE BEST OPTION, I HAVE DONE THIS ON SEVERAL CARS AND WORKED OUT GREAT, LESS THAN $100 FOR A USED UNIT.

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses


The quickest way to find a short circuit is by putting a bulb in place of the fuse. Anytime the time the bulb lights there is a load. And if the load is a shorted wire the brightness of the bulb will give you a hint. So while you're at it, finding a 'short' is a quicky...keep your eyes on the bulb. gotcha!
