This could be related to either your fuses (courtesy, headlamp, etc) or possibly a bad alternator. If you get it started, go under the hood and, whilst running, remove the positive battery terminal. If your alternator is good, the truck will stay running. It sounds to me like a short could have caused this problem, I, having had a similar problem would reccomend checking your cigaret lighter and making sure nothing has fallen into the socket. I once found a penny in mine and before I did I was constantly blowing fuses. The Fuse you will want to check first will be your courtesy fuse. should be a 20-25 amp.

2007 toyota corolla no lights, wont start


What did you plug in? I had a similar issue when I plugged in a high amp tire pump. It kept blowing fuses because the pump itself had a short. Be wary of using stuff like that in the cig lighter. I switched to a hand held pump. How was the computer found to be defective? I wonder if the cig issue shorted the computer?

The interior lights in my 2000 Ford F250 will not turn off. How can I get the lights to turn off?


Just to get the interior lights off to save your battery, you could pull the fuse. Refer to the service manual to determine the proper fuse.

To fix the problem, i would suspect one of the door switches is faulty.

My 1990 Olds Cutlass Calais is missing the fuse box cover and therefore has no diagram for fuse placement. Is one available online? Copy I can print or just refer to in order to replace correct fuses?


I have always had a place in my heart for the Olds Cutlass. I own a '90 Olds Cutlass Calais--WITH the fuse box COVER. I went out to the car and removed the cover and have it next to me so that I can type the EXACT fuse order as they appear on the inside cover.There are 2 col. When I've finished the l/h side, I'll make a line to indicate the start of the r/h side. I will also put the Circuit on the left & fuse on the right. If you are ready, HERE WE GO:
