98 Jimmy has a power draw it kills the battery within 12 hrs if you pull the 50 amp fuse for the int batt draw goes away any ideas


Yes Steve I do , that fuse supply's power to the I/P fuse block inside the vehicle . It powers AUX/PWR fuse #13 -20amp , RDO/BATT fuse #19 - 15amp ,MIR/LKS fuse #7 - 5amp , CTSY/LP fuse #8 - 15 amp , CIGAR/LTR fuse #2 15 amp , PWR/LKS fuse #14 15 amp , HDLP/SW fuse #1 - 10amp .Do you know where the I/P fuse block is ? You would need to do a parasitic draw test ! This involves hooking up a amp meter in series with the negative battery post an negative battery cable . Pulling each one of these fuses till the battery draw stops ! How To Perform Parasitic Draw Test EricTheCarGuy check out Eric the car guy's video on the subject !

Heater/Air Conditioner fuse keeps shorting


20 is a lot and is probably right. Does it blow out when you use defrost or just heat? The reason I ask is because the air conditioner comes on when it is on defrost.

HOW DO I LOCATE WHAT FUSE IS TO THE RADIO OF MY 2005 TOWN AND COUNTRY


Find and locate your fuze panel which are generally located either on the passenger side or driver side of the dash. Either under the dash located on the kick panel or on the ends of the dashboard near the door hinges. Its should probably say cig ltr or sometimes 12v aux/rdo which means more than one component runs off that fuse, you'll know this if not only the radio has stopped working but something else in the vehicle as well.

My 2000 renault scenic battery keeps going flat. I've put in a brand new battery and the car battery died again yesterday at my son's school after starting first time at work. What should I be looking at...


Something is draining the battery, or either the alternator isn't putting out to keep the battery charged. A local shop can usually check it for free and let you know if it's the alternator. The other is a shortage somewhere which will be a pain to trace down.

Battery will drain when sitting for a period of time, the alternator puts out 14 volts, installed new battery but problem persists. something is draining the battery, please help


take one of the battery cables off the battery and see if it sparks while removing it, if it does you have a shortage some where in the elect. system , this is the possible cause of the battery drain. If a shortage is present, you'll need to have wind or a fan blowing at the battery to keep gases from the battery blown away, as they are explosive,go to the fuse panel and remove one fuse, go to battery and touch the cable to the post, if it sparks, replace fuse and pull another one, once you pull a fuse and don't get sparks , then you located part of the problem, you have a shortage in this part of the system. At least this will let you know where the short is. Also, auto part stores sell a little switch which disconnects the battery,you can install one of these and flip the switch when not in use and prevent the power drainage.

I am working on a 97 Olds Bravada. It has a ground/short in the circuit marked RDO in the fuse block. There is another fuse marked RADIO, so I'm wondering what this circuit feeds. Any idea on what this...


they are both for the radio the first one shares a fuse with something else, if you have your owners manual look for the fuse block in the back of the book and it will tell you what it shares it with.
