A/t ecu fuse keep blowing out nissan exterra 2007 when start the car and car still running but kid of loose power when driving

Possible shorted transmission harness or transmission shift solenoids. Disconnect the big connector at the transmission under the car and see if the short stops and fuses don't go.

Automatic transmission not shifting gears

Replacing any fuse after it has blown ,your almost
guaranteed it will blow again

At least you know the circuit with the problem

Now you go to factory wiring diagrams, to see what that
fuse controls & do some testing

Have to have wiring diagrams,be able to read them & know
basic electricity & be able to test your vehicle,then you have
to be able to continue on with professional tools, once the fuse
issue is resolved, if the fuse keeps blowing every few days

You could have wiring issues,more likely inside the trans in the oily
environment ,you could have solenoid or module failure or mechanical trans issues

I would say you can't resolve at home,need professional help

Transmission won't shift & speed odometer don't work

oooo man i just spent a ton of money trying to figure this problem out. i have a 99 bravada to. let me guess the gauges lite up but the rpm and spedo do not work. also the transmission wont shift while in drive. this is how i fixed mine. on the driver side, open the door there is a fuse box on the side of the dash. it is probly shorted out, even tho the fuses arnt blow it could still not be working. here is what u can to to fix it temporarly. take out the fuses that say dash and ignition, now run a hot wire to the fuse box and touch it to the ignition and dash fuse spots. and while u have both of them connected turn the car on and put it in drive and it should take off in first gear and run how it should. (when u connect the hot wire to those spots the dash should come on, even tho the key isnt on)

1998 dodge neon ignition feed fuse in the car keeps blowing

Are you using the same power feed from the old radio? If so, your new radio may require a higher current fuse. Check the manufacturers information the came with the custom radio and make certain the current (amps) required is the same.
If the new radio has a higher power amplifier for increased audio, it will blow a low rated fuse.
On the other hand, it sounds as though you may have pinched the power feed wire in the radio bracket, trim cover or have it resting agaist a sharp bracket. So when you put the car in drive, the dash flexes enough to cause the short.
Does it blow the fuse when you shift to reverse?
let me know.

Transmission shifter is "frozen" it won't move

It's a fuse issue. Part of the shift interlock system.

If the radio is also not working, it's the cigarette lighter fuse. This one fuse controls the cigarette lighter, the radio, and the shift interlock system. It's in the kick panel fuse box on the driver's side.

If it's not that fuse, it's the "Stop" fuse in the same panel. Both blown fuses create the same behavior.

Easy fix! Don't bother with a mechanic. If the fuse continues to blow, take it to be checked.

Good luck.
